It has been gathered that there is a sharp divide amongst Party Leaders that came into PDP with Governor Godwin Obaseki regarding Political Appointments from Oredo Local Government Area which incidentally is the Local Government of Governor Godwin Obaseki, Former Governor Lucky Igbinedion, Senator Mathew Urhoghide Former Senator Daisy Danjuma and Rt. Hon. Ogbeide-Ihama.
Our news crew gathered from a reliable source that the Governor who had approved a joint committee at the LGA level of both sides to be Chaired by Prince Eweka had the Oredo PDP Chairman, Hon Oduwa, the former APC Oredo Chairman, Hon Alabi, Dr Pedro Obaseki, Mr Igbinidun Inneh, Oredo PDP Secretary, Hon Lucky Erhabor and a host of others as members.
After days of meetings, harmonisation of list from both sides and screening of candidates for Commissioners, SA’s and SS’s all their efforts were thrown under the Bus when the cabal twisted the process and submitted their one-sided list to the State Screening Committee recently inaugurated by Governor Godwin Obaseki, a committee headed by Prof Agbonlahor.
Further findings indicated that while Prince Eweka, Dr Pedro Obaseki and Cofrom the Governor’s group where surprised and shocked that after all efforts to make Oredo the Governor’s Local Government ONE HOUSE considering the Political big wigs from the same local Government, this embarrassment still came to fore.
It was gathered that Chief Osaro Idah, the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Hon Osaigbovo Iyoha in collaboration with one Hon Samson Abu, made a list of only the new PDP’s that came with the Governor and submitted same to the State Screening Committee in other to jettison the already harmonised list from both sides in Oredo Local Government.
You may recall that Oredo had the highest winning result for Governor Godwin Obaseki in the last Gubernatorial elections last year and it’s one stronghold of the PDP all along. The leaders, however, lamented that all these personal interests is what caused them and the Governor problems in APC and now these same Leaders in the name of Governor’s Cabal have started the same game of changing list after a combined effort.
This will be shameful and embarrassing that the Governor’s Local Government is in such disarray over Political Appointments after all the support Oredo people gave to PDP and the Governor.
To mitigate such mess in the Governor’s Local Government, the fraction of the leaders that came with the Governor that wants peace and harmony in Oredo and therefore appealing to the Prof Dennis Agbonlahor’s Screening Committee to call for the Oredo Authentic and Harmonised list from the Prince Eweka’s Committee in conjunction with the Oredo PDP Chairman and adopt same as the Original list for Commissioners, SA’S and SSA’s.
