The disqualification of Governor Godwin Obaseki during the APC (All Progressives Congress) primary election is not a news to me.
In fact, it was expected that, the feud between the governor and his godfather who is also the national chairman of the APC (All Progressives Congress) has been bitter one.
Recall that the likes of Aliko Dangote, and some Governors tried to settle the feud but it seem more like Oshiomhole desires more than loyalty.
Loyalty is something you can’t give to the end, there will be conflicting interest.
This can be likened to the Ambode-Tinubu issue in Lagos which led to the former governor of Lagos to be replaced by the party leaders for a new candidate.
If the APC are claiming to disqualify Obaseki second term bid, does that mean that the party didn’t notice this in his first term.
This is just a planned propaganda to oust the governor from contesting under the flagship of the ruling party.
The story might have been a different one if Abba Kyari (Late Chief of Staff to the President Buhari) was alive, he was stated to be in supply of the governor to end the reign of god fatherism.
This is not the first time a sitting governor will be bullied by a god father and party leaders for denying their interest.
There’s no much to say on this matter.
There are speculations that Obaseki will defect to PDP and contest under the party but the governor has not made any official statement about that.
His chances of wining the election is minimal. The Godfather controls the federal and can influence the election.
If Obaseki tries to give a fight, then he should be ready for EFCC witch-hunt.
