Fivestardiary gathered that the meeting reviewed the outcome of the gubernatorial election held in the state on September 19, adding that major factors that led to the abysmal failure of the party to retain its prime position were discussed.



The statement read in part:


“The crisis which was foisted on the party by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole with the formation of a parallel-group within the party called the Edo Peoples Movement (EPM) as a special purpose vehicle to take over control of the party in the state for the sole purpose of removing Godwin Obaseki from office as the governor of Edo state.


“The forced exit of the incumbent governor who we had identified as the most valuable asset of the party in Edo state and for whom the entire officers of the party had expressed preference as a consensus candidate led to the defeat of the party.
