Edo: Pro, anti-Oshiomhole forces fight dirty

•Intense horse-trading on for consensus candidate to tackle Obaseki

•Edo stakeholders petition, take case to Buhari
•Oyegun twisting facts, alleges Edo APC vice-chair

AN end to the steaming crisis in the All Progressives Congress, APC, especially in Edo State, is far from over. Concerned stakeholders of the party in Edo, yesterday in a petition to President Muhammadu Buhari, said that the National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole’s “unforced losses” and waging of “endless unprovoked battles against Edo APC” may hurt the party’s chances in the forthcoming governorship election in the state.

Also, a faction of the party in Edo has taken on a former national chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, urging him to stop acting as Governor Godwin Obaseki’s hireling.

The faction was responding to Oyegun’s claims that a reconciliation meeting was held where it was agreed that for the party to retain the state, its governorship ticket should be ceded to Governor Obaseki.

This is coming as many APC governorship aspirants desirous of stopping Obaseki from getting a second term have intensified horse-trading to present a consensus candidate against the incumbent at the APC primaries.

After what seemed like a ray of light in the APC crisis, the hornet’s nest was stirred on Wednesday when the Deputy National Chairman (North), Lawal Shuaibu, warned that the party risks disintegration, and losing the Edo and Ondo governorship polls, if the alleged arbitrariness and lawlessness of Oshiomhole were not checked.

Shuaibu, who faulted Monday’s inauguration of Waziri Bulama as the party’s Acting National Secretary by Oshiomhole queried his decision to personally constitute both the screening committees for the governorship and senatorial elections, as well as the final appeals committee, all in violation of the extant constitutional provisions of the party vesting the power in the National Executive Committee, NEC.

Why consensus must be built behind Obaseki – Oyegun

Yesterday, Odigie-Oyegun urged the APC to hand second term tickets to Governors Obaseki (Edo) and Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo) in line with a recent peace deal or ensure free and fair primary elections in both states by unbiased party leaders.

In an advertorial, he said: “I welcome most warmly the news that Mr. President has firmly endorsed the agreement reached to settle the disruptive leadership crisis at the national level that was threatening the very existence of the All Progressives Congress. The immediate relevant part of that agreement was that both the governors; Mr. Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki of Edo State and Mr. Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, SAN, of Ondo State, having performed creditably should be returned unless they do not so wish. This means that the party, in unity, should organize to support the return of both governors.”

Odigie-Oyegun hoped and prayed that a consensus could be built behind Governor Obaseki because “he has not offended any aspect of the APC’s constitution nor has he in any way brought the party to disrepute.

“He has performed in an exemplary manner. In his time, there has been peace and freedom for the ordinary Edo man and woman from harassment by official thugs. Through him, Edo State must prove that our democracy can only survive if we do not create a situation where an individual or a small group can make or unmake our governors or other elected officials at will.’’

And these are the so called progressives. Some of their supporters are just dunces who couldn't differentiate between their left and right. Some are fighting to loot ur resources dry and u are here supporting them. I don't know the yardstick to measure the level of their insanity.

Obaseki is a goner, those who live in Edo state knows the truth.

In a north election between obaseki and ize iyamu, obaseki will loose woefully he can't even win his ward.

Now imagine oshiomole supporting him.

Oyegun is behind this... Naturally, I dont think Obaseki can withstand Oshiomole. It's two past Governors against one who thinks he has "Abuja connection". Watch as PDP takes over Edo.

Obaseki is a man of valour.

He is not like that former governor who couldn't push for his right even with the power he had as governor.

Dem go hear! When the politicians have made them believe that their worth as a human is less that #500. Thus you see them dying for nothing. While politicians keep their own children abroad.

Just as the Oracle spoke during Oshiomhole second term bid and it came to pass, the Oracle has once again spoken and this time around, it is in favour of Godwin Obaseki. What is good for Edo north is good for Edo south likewise Edo Central. TOGBA. #EDOISNOTLAGOS

Re: Pro And Anti-Oshiomhole Forces Fight Dirty In Edo by wink2015: 10:16am On May 22
BUHARI indifference to the crisis within his party is the factor that is prolonging crisis within his party.

He should be calling the warring factions within his party together and settle the difference.

Unfortunately, Buhari does not see himself as a BRIDGE BUILDER.

Buhari is a kind of leader that is self centred. He only reach out to other political leaders only when he needs their help but as soon as he get that help he desert the person to stew in his own juice.

APC RISK LOOSING EDO STATE TO PDP IF THE PARTY LEADERSHIP DOES NOT CHANGE ITS ATTITUDE.

We have seen it happen in Bayelsa state, Zamfara state, Rivers state and if care is not taking APC will loose Edo state and Ondo state.

Edo state is the only state within the south south geopolitical zone that is controlled by the ruling APC party.

Why is Buhari allowing OSHIOMOLE to destroy party democracy in Nigeria?

OSHIOMOLE STARTED WELL AS THE PEOPLE 'S COMRADE AND GOVERNOR

But today he has no DEMOCRATIC CREDENTIAL of which bad name is now trailing his battered image.

Maybe he will retire to his village in Iyamho, Edo state after the current Buhari government tenure expires.
