A member of the party’s national caucus, who confided in one of our correspondents, also said in non-APC states, the party would recognise congresses endorsed by the highest political office holders in such states.

It was gathered that if the party’s stand was anything to go by, chieftains of the party including Senator Ibikunle Amosun, the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbeola, and the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, might lose out in the power tussle in their states.

The leaders who met at the country of a member of the Board of Trustees, BoT, of the party, Chief Raymond Dokpesi, in Agenebode, Etsako East LGA, Edo State, also believed that the crisis in the party would have been averted if Orbih was part of the negotiations that brought Governor Godwin Obaseki to the party in 2019 ahead of his reelection.
