I’m still in APC, ex-lawmaker Isaac Osahon says

Former member of the House of Representatives for Ovia Federal Constituency in Edo, Isaac Osahon, has denied a report that he has defected from the All Progressives Congress.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the former federal lawmaker, at a press conference in Benin on Friday, denied the report which was already circulating in the media.

Osahon said that his grievances with the party had not degenerated to him defecting from the party to the Reformed-APC, as being speculated.

He said that “I am not a member of R-APC, I am a member of APC, I am still a member of APC.

“I am not also a member of the Kwakwanso group that describes itself as Kwakwansiyya, and I have not dumped my party.

“Up till as I speak, I am still a member of APC. It is true that I am aggrieved because of certain happenings in APC and I expressed my mind.

“I told members of my party and the leadership that I am not happy about certain things and they are already looking into it.

“I have met with the secretary of the party and some others who belong to the leadership group and I have made my mind known to them.

“And they have set machinery in motion to ensure that this matter is resolved,’’ he stated.
