Politics Ikimi Lost His Local Council to PDP,We Can't Lose Anymore Now- Edo APC



The Edo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC has wished former BOT Member, Tom Ikimi luck in his political sojourn.

THE GUARDIAN reported that, the Edo State chapter of the party yesterday said it was waiting for the next political move of Ikimi before responding to the issues he alleged were the reasons for his resignation from the APC.

Mr. Godwin Erhahon, Publicity Secretary of the party in the state and former state chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, told newsmen, "For now, the state chapter will not want to comment in details on the decision of Chief Tom Ikimi to leave us. At the appropriate time when he settles down in the PDP where he is obviously going, we will have time to respond to some of his outbursts. We saw a lot of claims and counter-claims in the letter he wrote; we will address them in due time.

"Even now in Igueben, the member representing Igueben in the state House of Assembly is from the PDP which means even while he was with us, he lost his local council to PDP and therefore we cannot lose more than that now that he is gone. We are also hoping that with his exit, the party will be better organised at his local level and by the next election, we are going to be able to defeat the PDP in that constituency and that tells you that we don’t believe that we have lost anything substantial or meaningful.

"Like I said, we don’t want to join issues with him at this level. At the proper time, we shall reply him and when we reply him he will also know that we know what we are doing. And we wish him well wherever he is going but we sympathise with him because if he said he is running away from crocodile in APC, he is running into the lion’s den.

"We see it as a good omen. In every system, God will always help those who mean well. We pray that whoever that will constitute obstacle to victory in the 2015 presidential election; God will push him or her out. God is not waiting till these people do damage to the system before sending them out. All of them who want to leave, we wish them well".
