The raging war between Obaseki and Oshiomhole becomes more dramatic


“Whether it’s direct or indirect primaries, I will win” Obaseki

“Obaseki’s disqualification: I hope Oshiomhole
won’t bury APC,” Odigie-Oyegun

The war against godfatherism in politics will never end in Nigeria as the Edo brouhaha is one of such. Obaseki worked under Oshiomole when he was governor. Obaseki was the Chairman of the Edo State Economic and Strategy Team inaugurated by former Governor Adams Oshiomole in March 2009. The disqualification of the current governor of Edo state Godwin Obaseki did not come to Nigerians as a surprise because all along the world is aware of the open and unstoppable battle between him and the former governor of Edo state and current chairman of APC Adams Oshiomhole. As a matter of fact, Obaseki has been locked in a fierce showdown with Oshiomhole for about two years now.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) Screening Panel which screened the governorship aspirants on the platform of the party in Edo State disqualified Obaseki on the ground that he has a Higher School Leaving Certificate which is unknown to the Nigerian educational system, allegedly being in possession of an affidavit disowned by the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, error in the National Youth Service Corps discharge certificate which bears Obasek as against Obaseki, loss of primary, secondary and the Higher School Leaving Certificates, alleged violation of Article 21 D (V) of the party’s constitution, which forbids members from taking the party to court, legal precedents occasioned by the judgments of the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court on discrepancies in names. The Screening Committee, headed by Prof. Jonathan Mamu Ayuba, decided to disqualify Obaseki following a petition by Chisimdi M. Chima of Shores and Savanna International Law Firm. Obaseki, who appeared to have foreknowledge of his fate, dismissed the decision of the screening committee as unjust and ruled out an appeal.
A few minutes after the panel submitted its report, Governor Godwin Obaseki vowed that he would not appeal his unjust disqualification by the Governorship Primary Screening Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC). The panel’s action, according to him, is ”a mockery of the democratic process.” The governor, in a statement through his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr. Crusoe Osagie, said: “We have watched the mockery of democratic process, which Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is administering and superintending over in our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC). It has been an unfortunate, disheartening and dreadful spectacle.
He added: “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. 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 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 luck 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 hence, we call on all party members and the teeming supporters of Governor Obaseki to remain calm and await further directives.”
The chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State, Anselm Ojezua, has said that despite Governor Godwin Obaseki’s disqualification by the APC, the governor will seek re-election and win a second term. “They didn’t say he will not contest the election but that he will not contest under the platform of the APC.
There were speculations at the moment that Obaseki is heading to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which said that its doors were wide open for Obaseki should he decide to come on board.
