BREAKING: ‘Edo PDP’ How Obaseki Lost It! – Lifestyle Nigeria

Published

on

The battle for who picks the Edo PDP ticket has intensified with Gov Obaseki backing Asuen Ighodalo to succeed him. The acceptability of Ighodalo across Edo State poses a serious challenge to his aspiration as many party leaders and stakeholders across the state have vehemently opposed his aspiration.

Although some people believe that Gov Obaseki will have his way for his preferred aspirant because of the incumbency factor. Only time will determine this.

Gov Obaseki should understand that the dynamics of Edo 2020 are totally different from 2024. He should be reminded that in 2020, there were internal and external factors that facilitated his victory.

The external support from PDP Govs led by ever vociferous and boisterous Wike isn’t there in 2024. There was a covert support of APC Govs for a former colleague whom they believed was unjustly treated. There was tacit support from the presidency to allow him to complete his tenure. All these external factors are obviously missing in 2024 election.

The internal factors occasioned by the erroneous belief that he wasn’t allowed to work are missing. The sentiment against godfatherism, as well as the goodwill he enjoyed from the people of the state, has evaporated into the air.

A united and virile PDP led by the erstwhile State Chairman and current Vice Chairman South-South, the Kulukulu 1, Chief Dan Orbih is no longer there.

Notable leaders of the party, including former governorship aspirants like Barr Ken Imansuangbon, Arc Mike Onolememe, Engr Gideon Ikhine, Sen Mathew Urhoghide and many others are no longer in PDP. A core and vital group within PDP, now called legacy group led by Chief Dan Orbih, are fighting to save the soul of the party.

The governor should note that his rugged and committed foot soldiers like Charles Idahosa, the present Dep Gov Com Philip Shuaibu, and some members of EDHA have stayed away from the Governor and his supposed anointed candidate.

The general belief that the Gov has not done well in terms of performance which resulted in the abysmal performance of the party in the last Presidential and National Assembly elections is a pointer to the fact that the party is heading towards a disaster in 2024 Governorship election in Edo if nothing is done.
