PDP appeal judgement against Ighodalo

The secretary of the Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr Hilary Otsu has blamed Governor Godwin Obaseki for the debacle arising from the court ruling that could exclude the Party from fielding a candidate for the forthcoming Governorship Election in the state.
Reacting to the development, Otsu said that the decision of Governor Obaseki to stamp his feet on his way on the succession irrespective of the concerns of others was the primary cause of the crisis.
Otsu said:

“The news of the Federal High Court ruling on Edo governorship congresses and Primaries, does not come as a surprise. The process was faulted by many and just as 9 out of the 10 aspirants went to various courts to challenge the outcome.

“The Governor insisted on his way or no way. Unfortunately he isnt the candidate. His belligerent posture all these years led him to mishandle this process leading to this first time ever debacle.
“Edo PDP has never had its governorship primaries challenged in court. One of the aspirants, Barr. Ojezua warned severally on TV that PDP stands the risk of not having a candidate and fatally, so it is right now.”
GWG.ng reports that unlike the national leadership that a significant of the party in Edo State have echoed Otsu on the role of Governor Obaseki in the crisis.
