Why Edo APC Leaders Are Defecting Enmasse

…The One Million Dollar’s Story
Former leaders and members of the All Progressive Congress, (APC), who recently resigned their membership of the party in Benin City, are presently engaged in a fight to finish over the sharing formula of $1million transportation fare allegedly given to them by the national leadership of the PDP when they conferred with President Goodluck Jonathan at the villa in Abuja. 

Aggrieved leaders of the APC after failing to deliver their loyalists at the concluded wards and local government congresses threatened to dump the Adams Oshiomhole led APC in state, a threat the governor shunned. 

APC leaders who stormed Abuja to negotiate their defection were the former Secretary to the Edo government, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the Eson of Benin Kingdom, Chief Amos Osunbor, former state chairman of ACN, Chief Tony Omoaghae, Frank Arewele, Chief Evelyn Igbafe including some lawmakers. 

The defecting APC members and their loyalists were said to have met President Goodluck Jonathan and the chairman board of trustees of PDP, Chief Tony Anenih and Edo billionaire businessman, Captain Hosa Okunbor. 

The largesse was said to been given to the aggrieved APC leaders with a promise to deliver Edo State back to PDP in the 2015 general election and the 2016 governorship poll in the state. Pastor Osagie Iyamu and Chief Amos were said to have disagreed over the sharing formula which is currently threatening their collective agenda to dump the APC for PDP. While other members who grumbled secretly vowed to expose the leaders for what they term “personal and selfish interest” of the leaders.
