Oshiomhole’s Suspension, Bad Omen for Edo APC – Political Scientist
A Political Scientist, Mr Dolapo Ogunsola has described the crises rocking the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State as a bad omen for the party ahead of the governorship election.
He stated this while speaking with Radio Nigeria on the recent Appeal Court Judgment upholding the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman of the party.
Mr Ogunsola expressed the worry that the suspension of Mr Oshiomhole and the possible defection of the incumbent governor, Godwin Obaseki to another party would be a big minus to the APC in the state.
While nothing that the sitting governor was an asset to any political party, Mr Ogunsola hinted that other parties would be eager to accept Obaseki to their parties.
The political scientist maintained that the body language of Oshiomhole was signaling autocracy and may as well confer sympathy votes on Obaseki.
He noted that the suspension of Oshiomhole would deepen the crisis of the party in the state.
It would be recalled that the Appeal Court on Tuesday 16th of June, 2020, upheld the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole just hours after the state governor formally announced his resignation from the party.
