The stretched rift between Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo and the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, on Tuesday, October 8, led to chaos in a meeting between governors of the party and the leadership of the National Assembly.

This came as as the speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, stated the need to address and resolve the crisis in the state's chapter of the ruling party, The Guardian reports.

Gbajabiamila said: “While addressing the issue of one party and one government, myself and the Senate president will want to draw our attention to the issue of the crisis in Bauchi and Edo states.

"While we were able to successfully resolve the issue in Bauchi state, which is an opposition state, unfortunately, we are unable to resolve that of Edo state. I think this is what we have to look at and prioritise. We should consider how to constitutionally address the issue."

Upon mentioning this, the chamber was taken over by chaos with Senate President Ahmad Lawan doing his utmost to douse the tension as the meeting immediately went into a closed-door mode.
