A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State, Charles Idahosa, has denied being paid to attack his former boss, Adams Oshiomhole.
Idahosa also 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.
He said his criticism on Oshiomhole was not because he has been hired and paid to do so.
Idahosa spoke with newsmen at the Nigerian Union of Journalists secretariat, Edo State Council yesterday.
He said, “how do they now arrive at their claims.
“That is what they always say but I know those supporting Oshiomhole, are working for themselves.
“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.
