Edo Decides: Who Is Osaigbovo Olumide Akpata?

By Ogie Imasogie

When he contested as the President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), his name was Anthony; when he joined the Labour Party, his name was Anthony; in the case with Anderson Uwadiae Asemota, the Labour Party factional governorship candidate in the State, he said on oath that his name was Anthony not Osaigbovo; his name submitted to INEC is Anthony; in the list of candidates published by INEC, his name is Anthony; in his Labour Party Certificate of Return, his name is Anthony, and in his voters card his name is Anthony, even his call to bar certificate bear Anthony.

Who then is Osaigbovo that we now see in the many billboards that were commissioned by him? At what point did he transfigure from Anthony Olumide Akpata to Osaigbovo Olumide Akpata? Or is Anthony and Osaigbovo different people? Is he just trying to lie and deceive Edo people just for the selfish goal of swaying voters on the basis of ethnic validation and sentiments?

Edo voters really need to know who they are voting for. A man with ‘chameleonic’ characteristics cannot be trusted with Edo commonwealth.

A man that can manufacture a name to deceive, fraudulently misrepresent and misinform cannot be trusted.

Who is Osaigbovo Olumide Akpata?
