Edo Guber 2012: Oshiomhole Is The Owner Of The Game

Prior to the coming of Governor Oshiomhole in Edo State , other Nigerians used to think that Benin is cursed and that nothing good will ever come out from there. Some people believe that Edo State people are fetish because of their deep-rooted inclination to culture. While others think there is no way development will come to Edo State or Benin, the capital unless the people severe themselves from their alleged worship of idols. It took the coming of Governor Adams Oshiomhole to consign these heresies to the junkyard of history where they belong.

alt

Today the capital of Edo State, Benin City is wearing a new look, a clear evidence that there is nothing wrong with the soil, water, wind or air in Edo State except the obvious and painful truth that Edo State has been very unlucky with her leaders until Gov. Adams Oshiomhole came into the saddle. Today, Governor Oshiomhole has broken the vicious cycle of lazy, primitive and inept leadership in Edo State , causing other Nigerians to have a rethink about their thinking on the state. Today Oshiomhole has proved beyond reasonable doubt that Edo State can join the comity of civilized States in Nigeria through committed leadership. Today, Edo State is working and Adams Oshiomhole is working.

On Saturday July 14 2012 Adams Oshiomhole would be seeking another four-year mandate to continue the good work in Edo State . Oshiomhole is seeking re-election in Edo State believing that his good work will speak for him. He is seeking re-election because he believes his unprecedented transformation and transmogrification he has put in place in Edo will speak for him. He is seeking a new mandate because Adams believes that his engagement with the people of Edo State in the past four years will be enough to sell his candidature again.

But the Peoples Democratic Party in Edo State is trying to put spanner in the works. First, an accident nobody knew where it came from, hit the Governor’s convoy and three pressmen were killed in what looked like a planned assassination attempt on the governor. As if that was not enough, the Principal Secretary of the Governor Mr. Olaitan Oyerinde was murdered in cold blood just to weaken the high performing Governor. To make matters worse, some people believed to be PDP mercenaries were found with INEC registration machines in the thick forest trying to register fake voters. Added to this is the empty boasts, flexing of muscles and intimidations from the PDP to win the July 14 2012 gubernatorial elections at all cost. But we have seen this kind of desperation before in Edo State and it led to nowhere.

The antics of the characters in PDP Edo State are well-known. In 1983 General Samuel Ogbemudia told newsmen during 1983 gubernatorial election campaigns that whether the late Professor Ambrose Alli of UPN wins or not, that the NPN will unseat, remove him in Bendel State . It is on records that Ogbemudia and his co-travelers carried out the threat and succeeded, even though that dispensation was short-lived. 19 years after, these characters are still in Edo State fomenting trouble. Chief Tony Anenih, the man called “Mr. Fix it” in Nigeria is still on and kicking. Let us wait and see what they are capable of doing again this time around.

Governor Adams Oshiomhole is no push over. He is a master and a warrior of some sort. He is capable of doing his own fight and taking the fight to any level if need be. Oshiomhole is well grounded in this kind of war and he is a professor in activism. No man born of a woman will steal his votes in Edo State and get away with it.

All eyes are on Edo State 2012 gubernatorial election come Saturday July 12 2012 and I hope that Professor Attahiru Jega’s INEC will live up to expectation. With the horrible experience Nigerians are now getting from the hands of the PDP, it is certain that rigging of elections would no longer be acceptable in Nigeria and this is a warning. Oshiomhole’s rivals have tried to eliminate him physically to pave way for their criminal enterprise but have always failed. They will always fail. Light has no business with darkness.

Governor Adams Oshiomhole is the owner of the game in Edo State , and the people of Edo State , Nigeria and the world know about it already. He has nothing to show the people of Edo State but track records of committed leadership and service delivery. He is doing that and he has the people solidly behind him. He should not balk at the rage of expired godfathers and an amoral power that dreams power without responsibility.

Congratulations in advance, Governor Adams Oshiomhole

PDP'll displace Oshiomhole - Anenih
July 11, 2012 by James Azania


QUOTE:
FORMER Peoples Democratic Party Chairman, Board of Trustees, Chief Tony Anenih, has predicted victory for the PDP in Saturday's Edo State governorship election.

Anenih, who spoke at a campaign rally in Okada, Ovia North East Local Government Area on Tuesday, said the PDP candidate, Charles Airhiavbere, would have an easy ride because his rival, Governor Adams Oshiomhole of the Action Congress of Nigeria \"lacks the capacity to remain governor\".

He said, \"It's true that the governor of Edo State is from the Northern Senatorial District. When you have children, you give them responsibility, but Oshiomhole can't carry any responsibility. We have a candidate who will deliver health care and quality education.\"

Anenih however dismissed reports that the party's candidate labelled students of the state-owned Ambrose Alli University \"armed robbers\", saying the PDP would lift the standard of the institution if voted to power.

He said, \"What we have in AAU are Oshiomhole's kinsmen. We have an institution whose entire management, including the Vice-Chancellor, Registrar, Bursar and even Student Union Government, are in acting capacity.

\"The words of elders are words of wisdom. Edo cannot be left out in the South-South which is controlled by the PDP.\"

Another leader of the party in the state, Chief Gabriel Igbinedion, urged the people to vote \"massively for the PDP on Saturday\".

Airhiavbere on his part, promised to reabsorb sacked workers of the state-owned transport company, Edo Line, within his first 24 hours of being sworn-in as governor. He also promised to domesticate Federal Government transformation agenda.

NOTE: When "Mr Fix-it" talks, he means business. In Edo state, the die is cast. The ACN may win the propaganda war, the PDP does not hesitate to act willfully. Agens

Thanks for the hint you gave about how ferocious Anineh could be on political matter but let it be known to you this day that ACN is not afraid of the old crook.

Pls be aware of the fact thatACN in Edo State will meet him in his own term and he would be told one more time that he is not what he is calling himself and trust me,this is Mr.Fix It's last political fight.He and his PDP are surelygoing to lose big for the handwriting is on the wall in Edo State.So let Anineh bring it on!

Me? A gross illiterate?

When we say that the union between a leprous ashewo and a drug-addled mad man can never produce good, you serve to drive that point home.

I wish I could blame you, but I can't. Your particular handicaps appear to be anchored around your genetic composition.

You have my sincere sympathies.

Auspy, I'm only doing this because of you o! I was happy to just continue rolling in the gutter with that bastard whippersnapper

PapaDonkee's Thesis on Why Illiteracy Permeates This 'Article':

QUOTE:
Some people believe that Edo State people are fetish because of their deep-rooted inclination to culture...their alleged worship of idols.

Any commentator who would refer to the rich cultural heritage of the Edo people in any negative sense is a misguided illiterate. This 'idolatry' is the heartbeat of the State; an underutilized resource that could draw visitors to the state as easily as the world-famous Arungu festival has placed Kebbi on the map.

He is seeking re-election because he believes his unprecedented transformation and transmogrification he has put in place in Edo will speak for him.

Now what exactly does this mean? El Rufai has shown that you do not need to visit a state before you submit a pretend analysis, so why did this 'journalist' not back up his assertions with facts (real or imagined)? How many new roads have been built and at what cost? Schools nko? Are teachers on strike? Hospitals? What new industries have sprung up? What investments has Adams attracted to the State? Are you aware that, in a democracy, Adams has proscribed an entire tier of Government? Do you know we do not have elected LGA Chairmen? Is this sycophant aware that Adams has done his full 4 years in Office? Does this person know that Edo State is made up of 18 LGAs, and not just Benin City?

First, an accident nobody knew where it came from, hit the Governor's convoy and three pressmen were killed in what looked like a planned assassination attempt on the governor. As if that was not enough, the Principal Secretary of the Governor Mr. Olaitan Oyerinde was murdered in cold blood just to weaken the high performing Governor. To make matters worse, some people believed to be PDP mercenaries were found with INEC registration machines in the thick forest trying to register fake voters.

DO I really need to continue? For posterity's sake, I will. The 'assassin's truck' was found to belong to an ACN member by the Police. Adams' Principal Secretary was a pawn in an acrimonious power tussle within the NLC. And how are people believed to be PDP mercenaries? Were they ever arrested and convicted? Did they make confessional statements? Who apart from ACN has corroborated this stupid story? Remember when Adams claimed thugs tried to kill him and then we found out that it was his thugs that had actually molested students who he mobilized for a rally but failed to pay? The image of this joker marching through the streets of Benin protesting the breakdown of security was classic. I guess someone forgot to tell Adams that he is also the Chief Security Officer of the State.

The antics of the characters in PDP Edo State are well known. In 1983 General Samuel Ogbemudia told newsmen during 1983 gubernatorial election campaigns that whether the late Professor Ambrose Alli of UPN wins or not, that the NPN will unseat, remove him in Bendel State.

The same Ogbemudia Adams pampered and feted because Ogbemudia's word still carries some weight in the crucial Edo South? The very same Ogbemudia that Oshiomole used State funds to give 2 jeeps and one utility vehicle after ACN had won a re-run election in Akoko-Edo? The same Ogbemudia who, when his house was demolished, forced Adams to arrest the head of his task force, a retired General? But now that PDP has wooed the waka-waka porcupine back into its fold, ACN finds it convenient to attack him?

Governor Adams Oshiomhole is no push over. He is a master and a warrior of some sort. He is capable of doing his own fight and taking the fight to any level if need be. Oshiomhole is well grounded in this kind of war and he is a professor in activism. No man born of a woman will steal his votes in Edo State and get away with it.

When everyone, even the PDP, is asking that this be a non-violent contest, Adams and his thugs continue to chant war songs and threats, similar to what 'those' Northern politicians did in the run-up to the 2011 Presidential elections. Classy, right?


This person has written a paid advertorial for his Master, and intends to pass it off as unbiased commentary. That is an insult to our intelligence, and a disservice to his profession.

He's either Oshiomole's beyatch, or just plain ignorant. Since you seem to know the guy personally and you appear to be as afflicted as he is, you tell me which it is. That is, if you're able to, you poor, genetically-disadvantaged creature.

2015!!!
