BREAKING: Aiyedatiwa Sweeps Ondo APC’s Governorship Primary Election [See results…]

Published

on

Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa of Ondo State is leading the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary election in 16 out of the 18 council areas in the state.

The only exception came from the Ilaje council area, where Chief Olusola Oke emerged victorious.

Disappointingly for the other 14 aspirants, none were able to secure victory in any council area, signaling a clear mandate from the electorate for Governor Aiyedatiwa and Chief Olusola Oke in their respective spheres of influence.

However, the primary election was not without its challenges. Reports from the returning officer for Ifedore, Oliver Okpala, revealed that violence marred the electoral process in all wards within the Ifedore council area.

Edo Guber: PDP Crisis Takes Twist As Aziegbemi Dumps Party

Published

on

The gale of defection in the Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) continues on Thursday as another chieftain, a younger brother to state chairman of the party, Clem Aziegbemi resigned from the party.

Aziegbemi, a former spokesperson to Dr. Asue Ighodalo, PDP governorship candidate in the forthcoming election, may not be unconnected to the protracted crisis rocking the party in the state.

In a letter addressed to his ward chairman, PDP Ward 5, Esan South East Local Government Area, Aziegbemi said he resigned because of the crisis and other sundry issues which, according to him, “both the governor and the party’s candidate have failed to address these issues, begging for attention ”

Aziegbemi’s resignation letter reads: “The cause of this massive defection of members from the PDP is largely due to the conquest attitude of the Partly Leadership that lacks inclusivity of members into appointments in the state that the party loyalists worked for, yet they were abandoned for new entrants.

“The old PDP members, to whom I belong, have suffered a great deal at the hands of the party leadership and those in government.

“If this ugly development continues, it will be extremely difficult for the party to win any local government seats in Edo State’s September 21, 2024, governorship election.

“Another disturbing issue is the seeming hijack of the PDP governorship candidate by a gang of political jobbers, as against those of us who laboured for him to emerge as candidate of the Party.

“Kindly consider this as my resignation from every party responsibility, including my position as one of the spokepersons to the governorship candidate.

“Also, this serves as a formal resignation as a Senior Special Assistant to the Governor of Edo State, His Excellency Godwin Obaseki.”

Edo Guber: APC Candidate, Okpebholo, Lacks Cognitive Experience To Govern – Tenebe

Published

on

A stalwart of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State, Chief Henry Tenebe, says the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Senator Monday Okpebholo lacks the cognitive experience to govern the state.

Tenebe, who made the assertion while x-raying major political parties governorship candidates in the forthcoming election in the state, noted that when it comes to managerial experience, Asue Ighodalo of the PDP is more experience and competent than the opposition APC candidate, Sen. Okpebholo, whom he dismissed as a non-starter.

According to him, it is unfair to compare Ighodalo with Okpebholo, highlighting that the APC governorship candidate lacks the exposure and experiences that Ighodalo has acquired in both his private and public sector careers.

He noted that these experiences make Ighodalo the best-suited candidate for the job in Edo.

“If not for the law that allows parties to stand for election irrespective of performance, the APC is not supposed to field a candidate, let alone canvass for support.

“The party is synonymous with hunger, deprivation, kidnapping, terrorism, crude theft, energy blackout, and countless other vices.

“The indices are quite gloomy and they tell the story of a party in utter disarray. In a sane climate, voters would revolt and ensure they used their votes to send them packing”, Tenebe said.
