The position of Anselm Ojezua as the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo has been affirmed by a high court in the state.
The court, presided over by Justice O. Oviawe, granted an order of interim injunction which stated that Ojezua should keep his office, The Nation reports.
The suit was filed by Anselm Ojezua, Kenneth Asekhema and Aisosa Amadasun and the defendants therein are Colonel David Imuse (rtd) Lawrence Okah and Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Osagie Ize-Iyamu, a former secretary to the state government of Edo under the administration of Chief Lucky Igbinedion, who had been on suspension, had dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In his resignation letter dated Thursday, November 21, Ize-Iyamu stated that his leaving the party was influenced by consideration of happenings in the PDP.
In his letter, the former PDP bigwig said: “There are, however, many compelling reasons that have necessitated this resolution but it would be uncharitable even to throw stones at a house we once inhabited with many friends and associates.”
He, however, said that his decision to defect from the party did not come from any sort of ill-feeling or malice, since, according to him, he cannot point accusing fingers at a party whose friendship he once enjoyed.
Ize-Iyamu added that his motivation has always been to represent the people of the state in politics and ensure that government policies are used to better the lives of the masses.
