The slow movement of the tiger, as they say, is not a sign of fear and weakness.
There are other political parties in Edo State with gubernatorial contenders that will be slugging it out with APC. Let Ize-Iyamu and his faction make all the noise they can. Zamfara and Oyo’s cases are doubtless reloading in Edo State.
A house that is divided against itself cannot stand. We cannot afford another reversion to the status quo ante in Edo State.
Oshomhonle with his neo-Nazi inclinations cannot continue to play god over Edo people. Armed thuggery to foist his diabolic whims and caprices on our people will no longer work.
He was never an Alli or Ogbemudia of blessed memories whose days were a lost golden age.
He therefore has no moral basis to to bestride our state like a colossus and decides who rules our state. Edo must be allowed to speak in unity and unison and their collective voice must henceforth be allowed to count.
I have heard Oshomhinle and his surrogates speak during my visit to his domain in Edo North last year, allow his handpicked godson to emerge as the next , you can rest assured, will set us many years back. I rede thee heed this warning or disregard it at your own peril.
As the ban on campaign is about to be lifted only on the social media according to the Federal Government (one of the containment measures against COVID-19), we shall go round the state once again to sow the seedlings of transformation and redemption.
Receiving N2000 at the polling booths in exchange for your vote will not change the ongoing sad narrative.
Shun any inducement and vote your conscience on September 19, 2020.
