Ahead of the 2020 governorship election in Edo State, a former Commissioner for Education and co-convener of a pressure group, Edo Peoples’ Movement, Mr. Gideon Obhakhan has advised Governor Godwin Obaseki, to forget about picking nomination form for re-election, under the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Obhakhan, who spoke while addressing newsmen in Benin, the state capital, declared that Obaseki should as a matter of urgency obey the directive of the National Assembly in conjunction with the National Working Committee of the party to send a proclamation letter to carry out a fresh inauguration of the 7th Assembly in the State before the five-day deadline given to him.

According to the former commissioner, “the governor’s action is full of anti-party activities gear towards truncating the good name the party we have built over the years. For we in APC and Edo Peoples’ Movement, we are saying no to Obaseki’s second term”

He noted with dismay the way the Governor is relieving appointees allegedly loyal to the national chairman of APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, describing it as a witchhunt to bring disrepute to the party.

“The state is in an unfortunate situation today because of one man who is Mr know it all, he is not our candidate. He is APC by name not by blood. If he is planing to decamp to another party all he need, is to formalise the process because we are seeing what is happening. His advisers are doing a very poor job.

“Nobody can intimidate the people of Edo State for it is our right to make our choice especially at a time like this when the state is in dire need of good dividends of democracy.”
