The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole has urged his supporters and party faithful not to fight those festering crisis in Edo Stats Chapter of the party.
He advised those hearing up the polity to channel such energy to face opposition political parties ahead of the forthcoming Governorship poll in Edo State.
Oshiomhole was reacting to the attack and burning of two cars, canopies and chairs at the rally venue at the eve of the rally by political thugs.
The APC National spoke at a rally in Auchi, Etsako West Local Government Area of the State where he received some defectors from the PDP.
He also noted that the APC, as a party of peace, would continue to preach and assured that the people would win the governorship election in the state.
Oshiomhole who urged the party members to be integrated from the unit to the highest level, stated that he does not want to be a National Chairman that could not win election at the polling unit.
“As directed by President Muhammadu Buhari, the APC will be a different party. When I was told that they burnt this place last night. I said they be prepared to put more fire in other places because they can’t stop us.
“But don’t allow anybody push you to any length that provoke you to fight. Those who think they have power to fight should channel such energy against the opposition parties.
“What is happening here should reinforce our confidence in God. When God decrees peace, nothing can stop it, when God say it, no man born of woman can stop it.
“I don’t want to be a National Chairman who will campaign across the country and will not be able to win his polling unit because politics is local.
‘There are people who think that when they reach a high level, they forget the local. I was governor before now I am no longer governor, I am national chairman today, tomorrow I will no longer be national chairman.
“Let me tell those people in high places that the only permanent place is the grassroots politics is a game of numbers not a game for the powerful because on election day all have one vote.
“I want to urge all unit leaders, ward leaders, Local Government leaders and state leaders to integrate all those who have just joined us”.
Former Edo North senatorial candidate for the PDP, Engr. Abubakar Momoh, who led the defectors, said said more persons would soon join the party.
Former Deputy Former Governor Dr Pius Odubu, Hon Lucky Imasuen, Major General Chris Ogienmwonyi,, Major General Charles Airhiavbere (rtd), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu were among the Governorship aspirants that were present at the Ceremony.
