John Oyegun, former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has refused to endorse Osagie Ize-Iyamu, his party’s candidate in the Edo governorship election.

In a statement he issued on Monday, Oyegun rejected what he described as “primitive politics”, calling on the people of Edo to vote their conscience.

He criticised the “forced exit” of Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo, from the APC, saying the governor suffered “unacceptable indignity” while standing for the people.

“My views and statements on the Edo state political situation have been consistent. I strongly advised against the mistreatment of Governor Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki by the late unlamented National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC. Governor Obaseki stood bravely for the dignity and pride of his people and in the process suffered unacceptable indignities,” the statement read.

“In the matter of who governs Edo State, the people are sovereign and no individual or group of people, whatever their status, can decide on their behalf.

“I stand with the people of Edo State and urge them to to come out massively to exercise their democratic rights. They should vote for good governance, common decency, principled leadership, especially in the political arena and the protection of their democratic rights.

“They should by their votes make clear that it is their right to choose their governor and nobody else’s. There is no room for fence sitters. This is a special situation and primitive loyalties should and must be set aside. Remember Mr President’s admonition in an equally challenging pre-election situation in Imo State, “vote your conscience.”

someone that lost his polling booth during presidential election.. Oyegun is very light weight in Edo politics, maybe due to age or other factors.

Despite the fact he never won his polling unit and lack a political value... But he was not disgrace out of the office as APC National Chairman.... But the the Golaith of Edo politics was disgracefully sacked by little ward chairman David. Big lesson.......

Shut up

That has always been your slogan under Tinubu

Do you think politics should be a do or die affair

Does losing his pulling unit made him a lesser person ?

We know people that uses hoodlums to win their polling unit all because of stupid reputation

The way Obaseki was forced out of the APC is totally unacceptable, and Oyegun is one of the few people to call a spade, a spade.

Tinubu cannot have his way all the time, same thing as politics of godfatherism must be truncated back to the times of slavery!
