A chieftain of the Edo State All Progressives Congress , Charles Idahosa, has denied being paid to attack the National chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole.
Idahosa who spoke with newsmen at the Nigerian Union of Journalists secretariat, Edo State Council on Thursday assured that the crisis rocking the ruling party in the state will soon be over.
“You know politics is a game of give and take; there is disagreement, no doubt but I can assure you everything will be taken care of,” he said.
Idahosa added his criticism on Oshiomhole was not because he has been hired and paid to do so.
“I am 67 years, I do not listen to such rubbish. Nobody queries what Idahosa has said. Who gave me money? When I was fighting Anenih, some of you know me here, so I do not bother over such things.
“A few days ago, Oshiomhole said pray for me and I said pray for you for what? You are the one that started the trouble, you do not win sympathy and at the end of the day, people talked about money, I just laughed because I am not a poor man. I bought my first Mercedes in this town in 1981. I am not a poor man, so I do not need their money,” he said.
