Edo Guber: Erha Distances Self From APC Campaign Council Enlistment

Lucky Obukohwo, Reporting

A renowned journalist and environmental rights activist, Comrade Tony Erha, has distanced himself from those enlisted into the Publicity Committee of the governorship council of the All Progressives Congress (APC), towards the party’s campaign for the election, holding in Edo State on 21st September, 2024.

Erha added that he is shocked by the torrents of inquiries, from his biological family members, friends, colleagues and well-wishers, over his said appointment.

This and other were stated in a press statement by Erha, released to the Press in Benin City, the state capital.

“I am not a member of the said APC neither of other political parties. Also, I had not subscribed to be a member of the said APC campaign committee nor was I contacted before the inclusion and widespread of my name in it’. The statement read.

Erha, a frontline pro-democracy activist and one of the National Conveners of the Labour and Civil Society Coalition (LASCO), said that he has learnt to maintain his sanity and refrains from hobnobbing with some of the “so-called leaders, who couldn’t carry out very simple exercises, like party nomination, yet move to force their persons on innocent voters of Edo State”.

“However, my refusal of the appointment is not a serious indictment on the person of Senator Monday Okpebholo (a.k.a. Akpakomiza), or his governorship candidacy that purportedly informed the setting up of the campaign council. I had met Senator Okpebholo in his person, and it is not in my character to doubt his professed commitment to be the governor of the state, while I hold him in high regards.’. Erha said.
