Edo 2020: Oba of Benin urge politicians to shun Godfatherism, Consensus Cadidature
The Oba of Benin Kingdom, His Royal Majesty, Omo N’oba N’Edo, Uku Akpolopolo dissociate his palace and the kingdom from involvement in partisan politics ahead of the forthcoming November, 2020 governorship election in the state.
“Our Edo political actors must eradicate the twin evil political vices of godfatherism and consensus candidate” says the revered monarch.
The monarch also denies the information flying around in the state that he is supporting a particular candidate to emerge as a party flagbearer ahead of a political party primary election in the state.
“My palace will not coerce a candidate into stepping down for another candidate in the state” read the statement released in the palace.
Edo State is currently a hotbed of political scheming with the ruling APC disqualifying the current governor Godwin Obaseki from the party.
Godwin Obaseki also renounced his membership of the party in the state and he is set to join another party with his followers.
It is speculated that Obaseki might be joining the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP after a meeting with their South-South governors caucus.
Meanwhile, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is APC leading candidate ahead of the party primary election this month.
Ize-Iyamu is counting on the backing of the party suspended national chairman, Adams Oshiomole to emerge APC candidate.
Embattled Oshiomole suspension from the party by an Abuja High Court was upheld this week by the Appeal Court.
Despite Oshiomole’s suspension, Edo APC primary election will go ahead this weekend according to a statement from the party.
If the former PDP member emerges winner of APC primary election, he will face-off with Godwin Obaseki again as the governor has made his intention to run again known.
Godwin Obaseki and Osagie Ize-Iyamu are the two popular candidates to go head-to-head.
