Members of the Chief Dan Orbih’s-led majority in Edo State PDP were conspicuously missing at the recent Edo North Senatorial rally of the party which took place in Auchi.

This was as a result of the PDP being divided against itself in Edo State. The absence of the faction shows there seem to be no end to the crisis two weeks to the general election. This has made the governor’s facfion to be frantic and panicking as they face defeat.

Although there were calls for reconciliation after the Supreme Court ruled in favour of the Obaseki’s led faction, members of Orbih led faction has vowed not to join in the reconciliation. This, our source, said was reached in a meeting called by some of the leaders of the faction which was held a couple of days back in Benin.

Reacting to the absence of the PDP faction from the rally, a stakeholder of the party who preferred anonymity said the doors of reconciliation has been foreclosed and that they will mostly work with APC across the entire state to teach Obaseki a political lesson. He added that the governor cannot be trusted so there was never a time they considered reconciliation. “We have foreclosed any crook and cranny deceitful reconciliation that will be used for selfish interest. We have been on this crisis since 2020, why now? The reality of the impending doom is steering at their faces. They should face it. We cannot be deceived again. APC, even as the major opposition party in the state is more friendly to us, and most of us are going to work with the party’s candidates to win.

 

Edo North is already in the kitty. We have our people working in Edo Central to make sure these betrayals don’t win. And if you remove Hon. Ogbiede-Ihama from the Edo South, what is left is lifeless. Even the Labour Party will do better than PDP there. The defeat of PDP in Edo State will be too overwhelming to be able to contemplate with.”

All efforts to reach Chief Dan Orbih at press time has proved abortive.
