BECAUSE OSHIOMOLE IS ALMIGHTY GOD ABI? Oshiomole himself is a victim of his own success. I guess he has forgotten so soon how he toppled MR. FIX IT - Tony Annenih in Edo State. You know how he did it? He had the people behind him who keyed on his message of "no god-fatherism" resonated with the people. That same message is what Obaseki will play for the Edo people soon.

If MR. FIX IT that could fix elections for candidates in states far up north - east and west - could not save his own candidate in his own state, that goes to tell you how the COLLECTIVE WILL OF THE PEOPLE CAN CHANGE THE DICTATES OF CONVENTIONAL WISDOM

----- and who told you people are happy with Oshiomole boys like TONY KABAKA? you do not know squat about Edo Politics!

My brother, Oshiomole is not the Almighty Father. Our political system is flawed. Obaseki rode on the wings of Oshiomole to power and is fighting him. In politics, you are sponsored and your sponsors have an expectation from you. If you play ball, you are fine. If you don't, you run into problems. An example, Senator Victor Oyofo was Senate Chief Whip 2003-2004. Against the wishes of the South-South Senate caucus, he voted against a bill that sought to compel the IOCs to clean up the Niger Delta (note, Victor had worked all his life in ExxonMobil). The South-South Senate caucus thought Victor was not representing their interest and collected signatures to have him removed. Adolphus Wabara read the letter (when Victor had gone to the restroom). Victor was so miffed when he returned that he cursed Wabara that he'd suffer the same fate. Wabara was disgraced a few months after and resigned with his political career dead. Now, I am not saying Victor was sponsored by his company, I am only saying there are entrenched interests in our politics.

Even if Obaseki was to fight Oshiomole, he needed to win his second term first.

Oshio was only able to come to power because Yaradua started the rule of law mantra that refused to allow godfatherism or influence INEC or the courts.

That's how Tony Anenih lost his position.

Now Oshiomole has become the monster he used to fight. A wannabe godfather

what makes a man is not where he stands when things are comfortable - but where he stands when things are tough! IF Obaseki had submitted to Oshomole in his bid to remotely control Edo State - Obaseki will be done - TRUST ME. He would have been in a very bad position right now with the Edo people.

While you made an exhaustive analysis of the Oyofo matter - it did little to convince me as it is like comparing apples to oranges. In the legislative arm, political suicides are imminent because for anyone who does not tow the line because you are constantly battling your peers in the National Assembly to remain relevant.

But that is not so when your power and relevance flow directly from the people of the State as with election as Executive Governor. It is a different ball game and the dynamics are not the same. OSHIOMOLE will have to contend with the ESAN people to remove OBASEKI from office. Most of the votes POI got when he ran against Obaseki in 2016 was from the Esan area - WITH THE ESANS now firmly behind OBASEKI - where will POI get his votes? I GUESS MOST PEOPLE HERE SUPPORTING OSHO ARE NOT GIVING OBASEKI enough credit that he deserves in political strategy

As a politician - when your opponent can encroach into your base - you are done!!!!!!

PremierGuy:
When Tinubu behind the scene mentioned direct primaries for the APC governorship candidate, then there is nothing for Godwin Obaseki.

He should start to prepare his transition team for the next incoming governor. Ambode case in Lagos is an example.

You deserved a roasted chicken for your remembrance of the dirty Politics of Direct Primaries usually used to schemed out internal oppositions away to irrelevance.
I foresee a big compromise ahead-iyamu will be the next Deputy Governor for Obaseiki,otherwise,Obaseki should just kiss Edo goodbye.

If it is true that Gov. Obaseki wants to meet with Tinubu, at this eleventh hour, over feud with Oshiomole, then he should change his political advisers asap. He doesn't know when the rain started beating him.




They misled him all the way. Now he has been left all alone to dance naked in the village square.

Lol...their is nothing the brown teeth thiefnubu can do to save his ass.

Obaseki bite the hand that fed him, people like Tony kabaka,oshiomhole a.k.a oshobaba a.k.a oshoquake is already waiting to teach him politics 101.

Obaseki has finally entered express.
Obaseki really messed himself up by his continuous attack on Oshomiole. When he couldn’t succeed in his fight for Oshiomiole to removed as the chairman of the party, I knew his end is near. He is already on the express and there is no be careful in this one becos he really bite the fingers that fed him.I pray he scale thru though.
