Oshiomole Has Declared Himself As Supreme Court And Ultimate Determiner Of Fate In APC... Obaseki Laments

After a long brawl between the incumbent Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki and the National Chairman of All Progressive Congress Comrade Adams Oshiomole, the Governors ambition seems to have been cut short as he was disqualified to contest as the next flag bearer for the party upcoming election.

Obaseki was disqualified with two others, Chris Ogiemwonyi and Mathew Iduoriyekenwen by the party’s Screening Committee based on some references and documents.

The committee  however cleared Pastor Osagie Ize- Iyamu, Dr. Pius Odubu and Hon. Osaro Obazee.

However, the Governor who rejected the outcome of the screening exercise, said he would not appeal his disqualification by the committee.

In a communique by the special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie,  said he watched the mockery of the democratic process, which “Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, is administering and superintending” over in his party the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The governor stated that it has been an unfortunate, disheartening, and dreadful spectacle.

Governor Obaseki noted that he had initially asserted that going by the open display and enthronement of illegality by one man in the party that comprises several organs and eminent personalities, there is no way that he would get a fair assessment in the run-up to the nomination of candidates to fly the flag of the party in the forthcoming Edo gubernatorial election.

Obaseki said it is unfortunate that this “open show of shame, illegality, and travesty of justice is the brand of democracy which Comrade Oshiomhole has reduced the APC into”. Adding that the situation is quite saddening because this is a party supposedly reputed for change, equity and social justice.

“We have therefore decided that it would be an effort in futility to appeal whatever the unjust outcome of the evaluation and screening process of the APC will be, especially when Comrade Oshiomhole has declared that he is the Supreme Court and ultimate determiner of the fate and future of our great party.

“We wish Oshiomhole well in his maladministration of the party and trust that the Almighty will help our country to find the path to true liberty, freedom, and justice,” Godwin Obaseki stated.

He called on all party members and his teeming supporters to remain calm and await further directives.
