A house divided against itself cannot stand. This is a pointer to what will happen in APC in 2023. The party hurriedly put together in 2015 by several smaller parties without concrete consensus agreement will soon become extinct in 2023 as a result of disagreements that might go unresolved.

Giadom is hell bent to scatter Apc. How can he go against the wish of 16 Nwc members? He want to run a one man show. The onus of leadership lies on Ajimobi, in his absence the national vice chairman from South south takes charge.

According to him: “The NWC also noted that Chief Victor Giadom had resigned to contest as Deputy Governor of the party in the last election and that the party has no recollection that the South-South zone of the party had re-presented him.
“Therefore, the NWC has now asked the South-South zonal chapter of the party to present a member of the party to fill this position.”
Uzodinma named Edo primary election c’ttee chair
The NWC also named a seven-member primary election committee for Edo State, headed by Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma. According to Eta, Professor Mustapha Bello would serve as the Chairman of the Appeal Committee for the primary election. While the Edo state Governorship Primary Election has been scheduled for Monday June 22, 2020, the Election Appeal is scheduled for Wednesday, June 24, 2020.
Members and the primary election committee are Sen. Ajibola Bashiru (Secretary), Alh. Abdullahi Abass, Hon. Ibrahim Sabo, Hon. Ocho Obioma, Hajia Amina Lantana Muhammed and Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye. Other members of the Primary Election Appeal Committee are Dr. Kayode Ajulo (Secretary), Hon. Umar Ahmed, Nasiru Ibrahim Junju and Hon. Rasaq Mahmud Bamu.
Court adjourns sitting on suit challenging Ize-Iyamu’s membership of APC
The high court sitting in Benin City yesterday, adjourned hearing till Friday, June 19, in the suit seeking to restrain the All Progressives Congress (APC) from recognizing Osagie Ize-Iyamu as an aspirant in the party’s governorship primary election scheduled for June 22, 2020.
Presiding judge, Justice Emmanuel Ahamioje gave the defendants 24 hours to file their response, subsequently adjourned till June 19.
The court had earlier refused to grant ex-parte application seeking to restrain the APC from recognizing Ize-Iyamu as an aspirant in the party’s governorship primary election scheduled for June 22, 2020.
The suit is instituted by Kenneth Asekomhe, state deputy chairman of the party, Benjamin Oghumu, Mathew Ogbebor and Unweni Nosa and they are challenging the membership waiver granted to Ize-Iyamu by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC.
Obazee steps down for Ize-Iyamu
The chances of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu in the APC governorship primary in Edo received a boost yesterday as a fellow aspirant and former chairman of Oredo Local Government Area Chairman, Mr. Osaro Obazee, stepped down for him.
Obazee, who was screened and cleared for the primary at the APC, pledged to give his complete support to Ize-Iyamu, leaving Dr Pius Odubu as the only contender against Ize-Iyamu.
How Obaseki sponsored opposition parties against us — APC
Meanwhile, faction of Edo APC loyal to Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, yesterday, alleged that Governor Obaseki sponsored some opposition parties in the last general election, a reason it claimed contributed to the opposition winning two of the three Senate seats, adding that the ease with which he fused into the opposition was an indication that he was never for the APC.
Addressing a press conference at its secretariat, factional chairman of the party, Col David Imuse (retd) said: “Obaseki’s sins are legion; he has kept 14 members-elect of the House of Assembly out, he funded the long drawn-out but aborted attempt to unseat the national chairman. This drama is still playing out in the court as we speak and was reflected in the Appeal of Court ruling that was delivered yesterday (Tuesday).
“There is credible evidence that Obaseki worked against APC by funding candidates of the opposition party in the House of Assembly elections.

“He funded opposition parties in neighbouring states and in so doing, helped truncate electoral fortunes of our party. He also worked against our party in the last presidential and National National Assembly elections. This is evidenced by the fact that two of the three senators from Edo State belong to the opposition.”
Contacted for reaction, Governor Obaseki’s Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, simply said “No comment.”
Appeal Court ruling
On the Appeal Court ruling, Imuse said: “It is our carefully considered opinion that the Appeal Court misdirected itself. By the tone and wording of the judgement, one was left wondering if the Appeal Court has become a court of first instance. We therefore urge our members to remain calm, resolute and keep faith with the leadership of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.’’
Oshiomhole, EPM fighting Obaseki for selfish reasons
Special Assistant to Obaseki on Digital Media, Nosakhare Eguagie said that Oshiomhole is joining forces with retrogressive forces to fight Obaseki because the governor has surpassed his record of achievements of eight years in less than four years.
According to him, Obaseki’s achievements have awoken the minds of Edo people to the realization that Oshiomhole deceived them all through his tenure with media jamboree. He said: “Comrade Oshiomhole is not happy that within a short time, Governor Obaseki has been able to achieve what he failed to do in eight years which is the eradication of thuggery and building of human capacity with his investment in human capacity training programmes,” he said.
I’m undecided on defection — Edo Speaker
However, expected defections of political office-holders with Governor Godwin Obaseki, yesterday, did not take off as Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Francis Okiye, said he was yet to decide on whether or not to leave the All Progressives Congress, APC, like Obaseki. He said the governor is yet to formally inform him of his resignation from the APC but that he has not considered resigning from the ruling party.
He said: “To the best of my knowledge, a governor without a party has not committed an offence that we would begin to raise questions within the polity. He enjoys the constitutional rights to resign from one party to join another. It is not in contradiction to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Meanwhile, leader of Ovia South West Local Government Area of the state, Robert Fiyes and his deputy, Godwin Ekhator, and three councillors out of 10 have been removed for allegedly not supporting Obaseki.
But when contacted, the chairman of the council, Hon Destiny Enaulele denied allegation of such development.
He said “I am not aware of such, we operate independent arms of government but I have been informed that I have a letter from the legislative arm which I have not even seen.”
IPAC caution youths
Chairman of Edo State Inter- Party Advisory Council, IPAC, Comrade Ogbaloi Kelly Stephen, has called on the Edo electorate not to allow themselves to be used by political power seekers in the state.
He described the present political drama in the state as mockery of democracy, adding that other registered political parties in Nigeria should learn from what is happening in APC, stressing that APC as the ruling party has failed Nigeria abysmally in all areas of human development.
Hold primaries in 10 days, INEC tells 15 political parties
Meanwhile, INEC has asked the 15 political parties participating in the September 19 governorship election in Edo State to ensure that their primary elections are conducted within the next 10 days as earlier indicated in their letters to the commission. INEC chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu gave the charge yesterday in Abuja during the second virtual meeting of the Inter-agency Consultative Committee on Election Security, ICCES.
Yakubu said: “Turning to the Edo governorship election, all political parties interested in fielding candidates for the election are reminded that they must conclude their primaries for the nomination of candidates in the next 10 days. The deadline is Saturday 27th June 2020. I must stress that the date is firm and fixed. There will be no extension of the deadline. While the conduct of primaries and nomination of candidates will be the sole responsibility of political parties, our officials will monitor the primaries as required by law.
“Already, the Commission has published the date and mode of primaries for each of the 15 political parties that indicated their intention to participate in the election.
“Similarly, there will be no extension of time for political parties that fail to submit the names and other details of the candidates that emerge from their primaries using the dedicated portal created by the Commission. For emphasis, the deadline is 6:00pm on Monday 29th June 2020.”

APC/ Arsenal who disarray pass. With the former about to lose Edo state while the latter is about to lose out on European competitions.
The former has Oshiomhole to blame, while the latter has Luiz to point at for their woes.
Both are being run by cabals. As in the case of APC we've got the likes of Tinubu whilst Arsenal brags of Sanllehe and Edu Gasper. followed by the stingy Kroenke. However the list continues subsequently.

Governor Obaseki is not only loved by his people, God is also fighting for him.
It is only God who, when you need Him to fight your adversaries, does so by throwing confusion into their camp. Or, how else can you explain the injustice meted on him, and the subsequent travails the party is going through - first, the suspension of oshiomhole by the court, and now this?
Thou God of Godwin Obaseki, my life is available.... Enter!!!
