Abuja - An All Progressives Congress (APC)
aspirant in the Edo State governorship poll, Chris Ogiemwonyi, has denied
infighting within the party in the region.
He blamed “enemies of democracy of the state” for spreading
“Our attention has been drawn to the purported division in
the APC by some online local newspapers claiming that the party has become
factionalised into three groups, namely, Governor Adams Oshiomhole's faction,
the deputy governor's faction and the PDP decampees faction,” said Ogiemwonyi.

He said the APC in Edo State was “one indivisible family.”
“There are no new comers or joiners, neither is there a
group called PDP Decampees faction,” Ogiemwonyi said.
He was referring to a repeated statement made by an online
publication which read, “APC has since been split into three factions, the
Oshiomhole's faction, the Odubu's faction and the PDP decampees faction.”
Ogiemwonyi said it was obvious that as the September
governorship poll drew closer, “the political terrain will witness more
dramatic and mischievous development.”
