Edo 2020: Shocker for APC, Obaseki uprooting Oshiomhole, Ize-Iyamu from grassroots in Wards

 

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State is rapidly succeeding in sending early shocker to the All Progressives Congress (APC) as he continued to uproot the former APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, and the party’s governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, from the grassroots across the various Wards of the state. This is more so as Obaseki continues to deepen his relationship and affection with traditional rulers at the grassroots.

Obaseki’s penetration of the grassroots with ease and friendliness has become a huge shock for the APC after Ize-Iyamu had portrayed  THE incumbent Governor as being elitist, and  perhaps, does not relate with the grassroots.

There are indications that Oshiomhole’s political karma or as the APC governors warned last Friday, Oshiomhole’s political albatross, have been causing diminishing electoral fortune for the party’s candidate, Ize-Iyamu. According to the APC governors, Oshiomhole’s actions have suddenly made the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) become popular in Edo State and impairing the election fortune of Ize-Iymau.

Meanwhile, incumbent Governor Obaseki, candidate of the PDP in the September 19 governorship election, has been penetrating deep into the hinterlands, rendering account of his first tenure at the Wards and explaining why deserves a second tenure.

Adopting the incumbency campaign framework, Obaseki highlighted: “During my campaign for re-election as governor at Ward 9 and 10 in Anegbette, Etsako Central Local Government Area, I reiterated my resolve in resisting forces fighting to stop my people-eccentric projects across the state.

“We have built a power plant in Benin City and replicate the same here.  Without roads, electricity, and good industries, it will be difficult to develop.

“Our government is all about development and that is what we have done in the last three years and eight months.”

From the governor’s postulation, it would appear that the leading opponent constitutes a force against people-centered project of the incumbent governor. Governor Obaseki made it clear to the people that he has resisted the forces and is focusing on development of Edo State which is the harbinger for better standard of living of the people.

It will be recalled that Oshiomhole and Ize-Iyamu were rejected by traditional rulers in Igueben, Uromi and other kingdoms in Esan Land on Monday. Apparently, the APC campaign squad has been finding it difficult to embark on grassroots campaign, restricting its campaign to state gatherings. The constrains are becoming gradually revealed.

  3. Mohammed you’re one of this country enemy who doesn’t seems to understand we don’t need gods father in any state again like lagos.so pls wake up from anti party and let’s fight for our children future if not for ourselves

    • But with godfatherism you claimed exist in Lagos, Lagos is the most developed state in Nigeria since 1999 in terms infrastructure, economy, IGR etc. As a matter of fact many of you people from Edo state run from your state to Lagos for greener pastures.

      • Olasinde Julius it is a pity know nothing about Nigeria even at your old age. Lagos was once our capital till early 90s. It was not tinubu that developed the place as you claim. Lagos have more federal government presence more than any other states so don’t write what you don’t know. Lagos has been Lagos and many Nigerians have been going to Lagos being the former capital because of jobs opportunities even before Tinubu was born.

    • It’s will quit be alright for people of Edo to pls vote for the right man which is Obaseki so that the continuation of his good work for Edo people can be continue,don’t let us to be deceive by Oshomole and pastor Izeyamu they are armrobbers.and they are ready to sell Edo state to Tinubu likewise they sold Lagos and ogun state to him……….pls becareful ……….vote the right candidate which is Obaseki.

  5. God father’s are everywhere even outside political class but you must know how to manage your leaders, we called them leaders and there every where too.your boss in the office is your leader, in as much you manage your family and friends very well, you must know how to manage your leaders…

  6. It should have been better if APC had presented a different candidate for Edo state governorship comes September,2020 . This is because this was the same man Mr comrade Adams oshomomhe condemned four years ago calling him all sorts of names. I believe Edo people will vote wisely.

  7. Oyars, thank you for pointing out that very senseless blunder by Osho,
    It’s just that some of these our political leaders have lost it completely, how can he present the same person he said all sorts of things about four years ago and expect the people to accept him, ? But in his desperation he believes everyone In. Edo is in his pocket and that he can swindle them whichever way, but I think Edo people may not be that foolish

  8. Oshiomole is from my constituency but was only a disaster to Estako and Edo north. And for him to present a man he has already portrayed a criminal as a Messiah is questionable. Edo people shine your eyes

  9. I hate 2 remember how ambode was axed bcoz of godfatherism. Sometimes I wonder Y he didn’t act n leave that godforsaken APC immediately
