The technique to the APC governorship primaries has ended up being a harvest of sorts for accredited delegates of the celebration. A bulk of the delegates Vanguard discovered are simply smiling to the count on a weekly basis as they milk the major candidates. Not all the candidates are grumbling.
Among the leading candidates who had been an authorities of the branches of the Federal Government apparently conceived the weekly handout of N5,000 per delegate to woo delegates to himself a few weeks back. His effort has actually since been adopted by another delegate who is stated to have the support of a big guy in the outbound state administration. That candidate was said to have merely upped the video game by increasing the weekly handout to N10,000 per delegate.
It is what we need to do to keep our delegates, a source near the N10,000 paying candidate stated.
However, before the delegates are paid, they are made to show their PVC cards which in the eyes of some have actually now ended up being money producing ATM cards.
At a meeting with APC delegates from Edo North last Sunday, an extremely senior political office holder from Edo North who has actually been alleged to be sponsoring the Godwin Obaseki campaign was said to have advised the delegates not to avoid collecting the N5,000 being doled out by the rival aspirant. He, however, informed them to go back to the Obaseki project which he stated would provide them more.
The prominent Edo politician, however, charged them not to mortgage the state to those who he stated were not prepared for governance.
At the same function in the house of Rep. Philip Shuaibu, Governor Adams Oshiomhole was quoted to have advised the delegates to value the sacrifice made by the state commissioner for works, Mr. Osarodion Ogie, who is Obaseki’s project supervisor. Oshiomhole prompted the delegates drawn from the three Etsako local government locations to laud Ogie, who he said compromised his governorship goal in factor to consider of Obaseki following pleas by him, Oshiomhole.
