This Is Mockery Of Democracy, Presided Over By Oshiomhole – Disqualified Gov Obaseki

Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki, who has just been disqualified from participating in the June 22 primary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for possible second term, describes the process as a mockery of democracy, presided over by the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.

The governor in a statement today, June 12 by his media aide, 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”

Governor Obaseki who said that he will not appeal his disqualification as it clear that Oshiomhole has carefully orchestrated the move from the beginning, called on his supporters to be calm and to wait for further directives.

“We 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 Governor Godwin Obaseki 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.

“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.

“We call on all party members and the teeming supporters of Governor Obaseki to remain calm and await further directives.”
