The incumbent All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Chief John Odigie Oyegun, shunned the party’s ward congress holding across the country.

Oyegun was absent at his Ward 2 in Oredo LGA in Benin, Edo State.

Investigation revealed that Oyegun was said to be busy and could not make it for the all-important ward congresses in the state.

However, Mr. Osagie Edosomwan emerged the consensus chairman for Ward 2, Lucky Abu (secretary), Dorcas Ehoghai (woman leader) and other elected ward executive members.

Edosomwan, who confirmed Oyegun’s absence at the ward congress, described the exercise as “amazing and most peaceful ward congress I have ever seen in my life since I have been doing politics.

“You can see everywhere we are celebrating and congratulating ourselves. It was our elder who conducted the congress and put the right people in place and everybody was happy. It was through consensus,” he said.

The former Chief of Staff to the immediate past Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon, who participated in the process at Ward 3 (Oredo council) said: “We have long finished; the exercise went on peacefully and we adopted the consensus option, except in some areas where the process was contentious and they adopted full contest.”

At wards 1 and 2 in Akoko Edo council area of the state where Mr. Taiwo Akerele, the incumbent Chief of Staff to Governor Godwin Obaseki participated, the exercise was peaceful and the people were “all happy” amid “convivial atmosphere” with INEC officials and APC officials in attendance.
