Edo guber: APC clears all aspirants‎

Ahead of Saturday’s primaries for the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirants, there are fresh fears over alleged plans by the Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole to impose his candidate on the party even as APC has cleared all the over 10 aspirants in the race.

One of the aspirants, Blessing Agbomhere accused the governor of playing Godfatherism contrary to his initial promise to discourage such trend in the nation’s politics.

He alleged that the Permanent Voters Card (PVCs) were collected to either be cloned or seized claiming that Oshiomhole directed his agents to remove any delegate’s name who refused to submit the PVCs.

His words: “Collecting their PVCs is infringement on their right of choice. How are we sure that these PVCs will be given to them on the Election Day or found in the hands of thugs.‎

“Edo primary has been compromised. As we speak, more than half of the delegates no longer have their PVCs with them. They were collected by the agents of the Edo Governor.

“Just imagine why the delegates are being threatened by the Edo Government that must submit their cards”, he alleged.

Reacting to the invitation of all aspirants by the governor, he said it was wrong for Oshiomhole to call for such meeting ahead of the governorship primaries adding that Oshiomhole has compromised and already lost his respect and integrity.

He insisted that the governor has been manipulating the electoral process to favour his anointed candidate.‎

    A labour leader is always a labour leader. What do you expect from Oshiomole when it is their ways in the labour front. He destroyed the Nigeria labour congress. This is a man who was shouting that PDP are using fatherizm in election. This was a man who was shouting that Pdp has planned to rig Edo election in 2007 and 2012 and people supported, voted and guarded him to the govt house but whereas he is the one in-charge of rigging in Nigeria. All the Wayo, jibiti in this world are with him except the top APC leaders change their system they will surely loose that state to other parties because Edo people are now wise . Oshiomole is afraid that his ass will leak bcs of the embezzlement he perpetrated while in govt and he is looking 4 who will cover him up. He will be surprised that nobody will vote 4 his candidate during the real election. Edo people are not fools they are waiting 4 them in the September 2016 election. We will know who owns the land. Be ready to face Papa Anenih who knows how to play the draft of Edo and Nigeria politics. You also have the likes of governors Wike RVS, Okowa DTS, Dickson BYS, Emma AKS and the youthful Prof CRS to contend with as you told them you can win their states if permitted.
