Edo state politics since the last 48rs has hit fever pitch, the National Working Committee of APC adopted the direct primaries for the conduct of its gubernatorial primaries in both Edo and Ondo states.
Since the adoption of the mode in conducting its congress the Obaseki’s camp has been thrown into disarray.
Immediately after the adoption, the Obaseki’s faction of the APC swung into action by adopting indirect primaries for its own congress.
Herein lies the confusion who is recognized by law to conduct its primaries?
Residents have since been reacting to the fresh moves and counter moves from the warring gladiators in the state.
Is history about to repeat itself? Is Obaseki going the same way of Ibikunle Amosun the ex-governor of Osun State?
We just stumbled on a detailed transaction of happenings that led to the political oblivion of the once-powerful Ogun State Governor.
The party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) had approved a direct primary for the conduct of the Ogun governorship party congress.
Ibikunle Amosun the outgoing governor kicked against the actions of the National Executive of the Party and instead conducted his own indirect primaries in which it produced its own choice candidate in the person of Akinlade.
Although the governor and other members of his faction moved for an indirect mode, the five aspirants rejected the indirect primary mode, which was also kicked against by the National Working Committee.
The storyline claims that former Governor lbikunle Amosun of Ogun State with all his closeness to President Buhari, Late Abba Kyari etc failed to match Oshiomole during the 2019 Elections in Ogun State.
Amosun made no fewer than 28 trips to Abuja to change the Direct primary but failed.
He conducted his own indirect primary while the APC NWC conducted its own direct primary that produced the incumbent Dapo Abiodun.
Having failed to be recognized by the INEC who by law can only accept the result of a congress conducted by the National Working Committee of APC, Amosun quickly rushed his anointed candidate and smuggled him under a fresh party now defunct, Allied People’s Movement to install his preferred candidate, to this again he failed woefully he failed.
The rest they say is history.
The clout that Amosun has, even till now with President Buhari, Obaseki does not possess it.
So is Obaseki going the way of Ibikunle Amosun and Ambode?
The Governor has been advised to tread softly because when the chips are down, he would be alone.
PMB according to the people is very strict with Party Supremacy.
Let’s hear from you…
