It is not the masses that votes during primaries, it is delegates who vote, obaseki is never getting the ticket, this is a hard and bitter pill you have to swallow and relax �

The earlier obaseki fans start swallowing it,the better

See, who becomes something most times doesn't matter in nigeria politics. Lucky was Governor, did bini people gained anything special from him?
Goodluck was president, did S/S gained anything special from him?
But, I know that Esans will gain massively from an Esan governor because an average Esan man doesn't forget home and his people.
I am from Uromi and I have always told everyone tgat cares to listen that when God blesses me more than how I am now, first, all my factories will be located in esanland, and it's a must that I will be paying stipends to Esan father's and mothers and gives scholarship to Esan children. I am proud of this tribe and if I am to chose 1m times again, I will still chose to come from Esan.

Now let me tell you, in place of Obaseki it would have been an Esan man as Governor, that was Oshiomhole plan and it was when Ize-iyamu found out then, that's why he decamped to PDP... Oshiomhole was already grooming Peter Esele to takeover from him.

Then boom, something happened, during goodluck as president and prior to 2015 election, Abuja tried to impeached Oshiomhole (spearheaded by Anenih, an Esan man) so that PDP will take over Edo State and easily win the state for Goodluck.

When the fighting was ongoing, our people, basically because of our hate for Oshiomhole and our love for Anenih joined Anenih and Abuja to make impeaching Oshiomhole a reality.

But what did the binis do? They (spearheaded by Capt Hosa, even though Hosa and Oshiomhole were quarrelling then because of airport road Oshiomhole paid Capt and Capt did do) supported Oshiomhole and fought tooth and nail to make sure he wasn't impeached (even the late Oba supported Oshiomhole during the impeachment battle).

When the battle was ongoing, all the traditional rulers in Edo South met Oshiomhole at the government house in a secret meeting, sent by the late Oba and told him that for them to continue to support him during the battle, after his tenure he must bring out a bini man. And this how how esan lost out and Oshiomhole came up with Obaseki. So, if you were in Oshiomhole shoes what would you have done?

You see we Esans? We play bad politics like the ibos, we always put all our eggs in one basket, that's why igbo hasn't produced a president and Esan hasn't produced a Governor.

You are right,the esans just like igbos and southern kaduna always vote for pdp except during oshiomhole re election when he won most parts of esan land.so peter esele is esan? I thought he is Edo north

In edo central, it's a no go area for oshiomhole because they wil not win dat district, while edo north may likely vote 4 oshiomhole candidate but not all d 6 lga dat make up edo north will vote 4 oshio's candidate. so u can c dat obaseki is all d way.

Since obaseki will not contest under apc or pdp,he will lose narrowly in Edo south,win narrowly in central and lose massively in Edo north

I don't need to be on ground to know how it will happen.you are a stubborn fellow.you hardly take correction until it is too late.when you don't know something, be silent and learn.I have explained to you how direct primaries are done and how it will happen but hatred for adams won't let you take note.
The supposed enemies of oshio have no role to play im Edo.the first four names are even having problems controlling their state party.this is not a national election.all reputable politicians from buhari to tinubu have several enemies yet they still prevail.you have nothing to say.

Go and check electoral act,apc or pdp constitution.the conduct of direct primaries is totally in the hands of the nat chair.it is only in indirect primaries that the state exco can have some say subject to the national

Arabiandude:

Stop saying what you have no knowledge about. This is a public forum, I would have told you things that played out in Edo North during that period. I was part of those that played it. So oga, you don't know what you are saying.

You see the Shaibu you are praising to high heaven? I know him more than you...let me tell you where he got his ruggedity from.

During Shaibu days at Ekpoma, he was damn so rugged, he was once even aiye number 1 when he was schooling at Ekpoma.

But you see, the current Aiye National president is Inegbeneiki and he is in Oshiomhole camp, a die-hard Oshiomhole supporter...so when the time comes, rugged wise Shaibu will be contained even by his people.

And for Edo South, the state chairman was(wetin be that Oshiomhole police oga name that year, please remind me if you do, I don forget) and he is in Oshiomhole camp, same with kabaka who they see as their leader in Edo South.

In Edo north, there is one Oshiomhole cousin called Romeo, he was Viking head there, he was the one that led the squad that chased Shaibu, Obaseki and Oba of Lagos out of Edo north(shey you read the news when it happened).

So my brother, Shaibu can easily be curtained when the time comes.

@ Arabiandude
I was beginning to believe your intervention until you misfired with this statement;

"During Shaibu days at Ekpoma, he was damn so rugged, he was once even aiye number 1 when he was schooling at Ekpoma"

with the above statement , it is safe to say ur interventions are hearsay. Shaibu is a confirmed jossite and ur path never crossed with his in uj or AAU.
so recant the above quote

When he was supporting obaseki he wasn't a godfather, now that he has refused to support him and opt for another person he's now a godfather right? Oshiomhole as an individual has the right to support anynody he wishes to.

[quote author=toogbasky post=89833827]After reading this i can see that you just wanna argue,,, my point has always been Obaseki is from Edo south and he can’t deliver his area, Oshiomole would always deliver Edo north in any election weda when he was governor or when he left

Re: APC Adopts Direct Primaries For Edo Governorship Election Candidate by Ezalb: 7:37pm On May 22
It is obvious the Nigerian youths aren't ready for leadership..obaseki has sanitized the Edo space with his policies, he cannot accomplish everything in 8 years talkless of 4..the changes are evident in the state,and every sincere person leaving there will attest to it..for the fact that the man isn't playing to their gallery is what is causing his problems with oshiomoles camp...oshiomole isn't a saint either,a very Terrible individual,
The one mentioning aiye,Viking etc...do you know all those people can die or be incapacitated and do nothing.. everything is not gra gra...until we are ready to stand up for truth this country isn't going anywhere...
