Edo 2020: Chiefs, elders reject Oshiomhole’s pleas

A cross-section of senior Benin chiefs on Sunday rejected efforts by the sacked National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, to drag them into partisan politics, urging the APC candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu to try out his luck at the poll come September 19, 2020.

According to the chiefs, their traditional duties to Edo people, irrespective of the political parties they belong, restrain some of them from campaigning for any candidate, and would not be swayed by Oshiomhole’s genuflections and pleas.

“Edo people are very rational people, they know who to vote for on September 19. Some of us are pensioners and we know the candidate that will not delay our monthly pension. The civil servants, teachers and other government workers know the candidate that will prioritise their wellbeing and sustain the ongoing reforms in all sectors of the state,” one of the chiefs said.

The chiefs, who pleaded not to be mentioned, noted that some of them occupy very sensitive positions in the palace of His Royal Majesty, Omo N’Oba N’Edo, Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, hence would join the Benin monarch in prayers for a peaceful election in the state.

“Some of us came for this meeting with Oshiomhole to hear what message he has for us. But I felt embarrassed when he went down on his knees to start begging us to vote for the APC candidate. Oshiomhole said he made a mistake for campaigning for Obaseki in 2016. What is the guarantee that he is not making a worse mistake this time?

“We are not children, we can’t be manipulated by politicians. Oshiomhole had his time as governor for eight years, and all Benin people supported him. He should allow Edo people to choose their leader this time, without being hoodwinked,” one of them said.

He added that “the majority of Edo people will support the candidate that is committed to a peaceful and secure state devoid of warlords and killer gangs, to sustain the progress we have witnessed in all aspects of our lives in recent times.”

These Chiefs don run Oshiomole street ooo.

Besides that, they're very correct. My thoughts since yesterday below!

Funny how you people are twisting this... The Oba of Benin told the PDP also that He can't support any candidate instead he can only pray for them. Wonder how you guys now turn this to rejection.

OBASEKI never owed pension and pays salary promptly.

“We are not children, we can’t be manipulated by politicians. Oshiomhole had his time as governor for eight years, and all Benin people supported him. He should allow Edo people to choose their leader this time, without being hoodwinked,” one of them said.

God-fatherism..

But jokes apart, on what basis is oshiomole campaigning for POI?

I mean this is disgusting. Even Tinubu, doesn't go around campaigning for anyone. He sits back and allow his boys get the job done.

Adams is an embarrassment to men.

Anybody we vote POI for this coming election no get sense.

I respect edo people

Is this not the same Almighty oshiomole bragging about having two south south state(Bayelsa and Edo) in his pocket few months ago

Today his pockets are empty
The two states went back to PDP

Oshiomole seems to be eating his vomit After all forms of peaceful negotiations failed

Here he is kneeling down, Only ize iyamu was clapping, None of the kingmakers were clapping

I think we need organized and resolute institutions like this Edo monarchs to chechmates excesses of erring leaders

Commonsense suggests that some chiefs supported pastor and some rejected him which is normal just like Bini votes will be divided

Did you watch the video of the visit. And where did the Oba said no to Godfatherism in that video. For your information the palace released a press statement berating the the Governors appointees dragging Captain Hosa’s name. The palace made them realized that Captain Hosa is a bonafide son of the palace and he can support anybody he wants.

Lies. Obaseki and his supporters are in panic overdrive lol. Pleaded anonymity indeed.lol let Obaseki pay them a visit also.The online warriors and voters should ask Edo friends if they have any idea what the white chalk given to poi by the enigie mean.
For 3years Obaseki disrespected everyone thinking he would get the apc ticked and the federal might will be used to retain him. Alas that did not happen.now he has to go back to those same people he has treAted with disdain to ask for support. Lol. I do not pity him he laid his bed let him lie on it.
Edo is not Lagos neither is it Rivers or Akwa Ibom. Obaseki will hear the result of the state on ground not on the social media Sept 19.
