Oba Of Benin, Buhari, Dangote Couldn’t Reconcile Obaseki, Oshiomhole – Osunbor by nairavsdollars(f): 1:52pm On Jun 07
Temidayo Akinsuyi, Lagos

Prof. Oserheimen Osunbor, a former governor of Edo State at the weekend said efforts by President Muhammadu Buhari, Oba of Benin, Ewuare II and Alhaji Aliko Dangote and others to reconcile Governor Godwin Obaseki and Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has not yielded any positive result.

In a statement made available to Daily Independent, Osunbor also said it is unfortunate that the Reconciliation Committee set up by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party has not yielded the desired result with the governorship primaries less than a month away.

Osunbor who said the signs ahead are not good also appeal to the party leaders and warring parties to sheathe their sword and avoid playing into the hands of the opposition who are waiting in the wings to benefit from the crisis.

He also appealed to APC leaders in the state to tread with caution not to fall into legal pitfalls after the guber election.

He said “The crisis in Edo State Chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) which has simmered for about two years now threatens to boil over as we draw closer to the Party’s gubernatorial primaries on June 22. This portends disastrous consequences for the Party and the people of Edo State unless it is resolved promptly before the primaries.

“Given my position in the Party I have made efforts outside of public glare towards bringing about reconciliation by speaking to the two leading protagonists, the National Chairman Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and His Excellency the Governor of Edo State Godwin Obaseki as well as some of their supporters.


“I also tried to rally some elders of the Party from the State to broker peace. It is common knowledge that our revered royal father, His Royal Majesty the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II made his own efforts including appealing to our President Mohammadu Buhari to help broker peace among these two illustrious sons of Edo State.

“It is also believed that their mutual friend Dr. Aliko Dangote made repeated efforts at reconciliation to no avail. So did a number of others that I know.

When therefore the National Caucus of the party resolved at its meeting of 21 November 2019 to institute a National Reconciliation Committee to address the crises in various states of the Federation, which resolution was upheld by a decision of the National Executive Committee of the party the following day, there seemed to be light at the end of the tunnel.

“However, this has not happened till date as the National Reconciliation Committee which was reconstituted in February 2020 has not yet completed its assignment.


“There is now a chance that the Committee may be confronted with a fait accompli and overtaken by events if the Edo primaries (and guber elections) are held before it concludes its assignment.

“That would be tantamount to medicine after death. It will be extremely risky and ill-advised for the party to conduct its primaries, talk less of going into the governorship election bitterly divided; hence it has become urgent and compelling to hasten the process of reconciliation of all aggrieved persons without further delay.

“The reason that reconciliation is imperative is that if the Party conducts rancorous primaries and goes into the governorship elections divided, winning will become more difficult than it should be ordinarily, given the weakness of the opposition in the State.

“Even if the APC candidate wins the election the victory will be tenuous because of the threat of litigation that is almost certain to follow. This is why we must as a party tread with caution.

“It is often erroneously thought that elections end when INEC’s Returning Officer announces a winner but this has over the years proved not to be

“At best it can be likened to the end of the first half in a game of football. The second half which is even more decisive plays out in the Election Petitions Tribunal and courts of law and way up to the Supreme Court where it involves governorship election.

“If and when that happens the matter moves from the political arena to the judicial arena and no one can ever predict with certainty what the outcome will be or what the courts will decide. Examples are legion where the courts have shocked many by declaring a different result from what was announced by INEC because a political party had violated its own constitution, the Electoral Act and other laws including infringing on the rights of its members or engaged in one form of impunity or the other. Let us not forget so soon how in 2007 the Supreme Court punished PDP for the injustice they did to Ararume.


“It is unhelpful at this stage to dwell in polemics, apportion blame or argue as to whether it is best to adopt direct or indirect primaries which at any rate enjoy equal legitimacy ( along with consensus) under Article 20 of the APC Constitution.

“There is no doubt at all that the APC Candidate will win the forthcoming election but we must be mindful not to lose the victory in court because of a flaw in the process that produced the candidate.

“The pain of such a loss will be too agonising to bear. The leaders of the main opposition in Edo have been quoted in the media as saying that they are hoping and praying to benefit from the APC crisis so that they can recover through the court the governorship that they lost in the court. APC must not make the mistake of “gifting” them the governorship whether by act of commission or omission.

“For now the signs are not good. There is danger ahead. We must avoid pitfalls. I, therefore, make this clarion call on the APC national leadership to act urgently and decisively to put our house in order by fostering reconciliation before it is too late. We need to tread with caution.”

What I do know is, if Obaseki doesn't win the primaries, he'll decamp to pdp and because of his familarity with the terrain (Edo state), he'll be made the party's primary candidate. When the guber. election comes, Oshomole will want to rig the election and that's when he'll see the full wraught of Obaseki who will be waiting for any nonsense from Oshomole. After he wins, I expect Oshiomole to be barnished.

I laughed when I saw Tinubu supporting Oshomole, Edo no be Lagos that will allow god fatherism.


what i do know is, obaseki wins either ways and let's face it, Oshomole is currently doing more harm than good. People said they don't want godfatherism but you're imposing yourself upon them against their wish.

Obaseki and Oshiomole fight is like Biggie and Tupac.

Lines have been crossed, rules of engagement have been broken.


They will fight until one or both go down.

Oshiomole is an arrant arrogant being. My anger in all these is that he is not opposing the governor on failure of governance.

Nobody is interested in the well being of Edo people. I really want to beg my Edo brothers to vote whom they can trust in the coming election. Even if it is not APC or PDP.
Again do not join any camp and fight for these men. Nigerian politicians are not worthy fighting for. They will reconcile las las and those who will die will die. At the end you are the losers.

What I hate most is the trend of indifference in the body language of President Buhari. With his position as the President he should naturally be the arbiter to resolve conflicts and party issues when all available avenues has been exhausted. A President that lost Zamfara and Rivers to internal squabbles is a lazy, figure head Leader.

Governance= Zero

Party Politics= Zero

Banditry=Zero

Corruption= Zero

Economy= Zero

Overall it's obvious Buhari is an incompetent leader and that's so pathetic for a Country like ours in 2020. It's hard being a Zombie or BMC. sad
