Embattled National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, and the Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, and the APC National Vice Chairman South South, Hilliard Eta, were conspicuously absent from the party’s South-South Consultative meeting which ended in the early hours of Friday.
The meeting, which was convened at the behest of the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, held at the Edo State Governors Lodge, Asokoro.
Eta had on Wednesday called on party’s stakeholders to shun the meeting because, according to him, it was not properly convened.
The well-attended meeting had in attendance four serving Ministers from the South-South geo-political zone namely Rotimi Amaechi (Transport), Dr Osagie Ehanire (Health), Festus Keyamo (State, Labour) and Goddy Jeddy Agba (State, Power).
Others were former Senate Leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba; former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Usani Nguru Usani; and ex-NIMASA boss, Dakuku Peterside; Sen. Domingo Obende, factional Chairman of the party in Edo, Anslem Ojezua; party chieftain, Dr. Ray Murphy, and Chief Osaro Idah.
