Former Speaker of Edo state House of Assembly, Kabiru Adjoto, has warned Imo state Governor and the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), gubernatorial Committee, Hope Uzodinma to stay from the state.
Adjoto in a statement on Friday said Uzodinma would be resisted from entering the state.
“Hope Uzodinma should hand over to his deputy before coming to Edo. He should think twice before embarking on a journey that may negatively affect him for life. Edo is not Imo.
“We shall resist him and stop him from entering Edo.
“He should pray with his wives and children before leaving Imo. He should be ready to eat as lunch uncooked vulture eggs while in Edo” the former speaker said in the terse statement.
In a related development, a faction of the APC in Edo state led by the Chairman,Anslem Ojezua, has rejected the Uzodinma-led commitee.
Ojezua in a statement on Friday said his factions not recognize the Hilliard Eta as the acting National Chairman.
“Our attention has been drawn to reports that a primary election committee has been inaugurated by the Hilliard Eta-led faction of the National Working Committee of our party to conduct party primaries in Edo.
“This purported inauguration is reported to have been done while a controversy is raging as to the proper officer to take over from Adams Oshiomhole.
“We have on good authority that Victor Giadom, the acting National Secretary, has been empowered by the FCT High Court in Abuja to act in that capacity.
“Besides, we have reservations with the entire process from the beginning because the national working committee has not first obtained the approval of the National Executive Committee of our party.
“In the light of the above, we have no option than to reject the Uzodimma-led committee,” Ojezua said.
