There are people I find difficult to write anything negative on. Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is one of them. I like his courage and bluntness. When he was a Governor of Edo State, he was a demigod. Nobody dared challenge him. As a Governor, he had an exaggerated opinion of himself, and was totally against godfatherism and stomach infrastructure. Unfortunately, what he fought against, he champions them today.

Fortunately, in recent times, godfathers have never won a democratic war, no matter how hard they try. From all indications, Comrade Oshiomhole is in campaign mode for the forthcoming APC gubernatorial primary election in Edo State. The Comrade had an interest as a "third party", so he can't conduct a free, fair and peaceful primary election in Edo State.

His intentions obviously is to imposed Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu. But anyone familiar with the politics of Edo State would be struck by the comic irony of today's event. It is like a classic case of a rapist returning to his victim to ask for love. It is important to constantly remind a forgetful public, that Comrade Oshiomhole said,"Pastor Ize-Iyamu cannot be trusted with public funds." What has changed!

What is Comrade Oshiomhole indeed looking for? Does the Comrade wants Osadebe Avenue-Government House to become the government of Oshiomhole, for the Oshiomhole and by the Oshiomhole, is infinitely undemocratic and amount to courting appointment with disaster.

Infact, somebody should let Comrade Oshiomhole and Pastor Ize-Iyamu know that the patriotic Edo people are disappointed in them. Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu returned to APC on deceit but the people tolerated it, hoping that he will do the "will"of the majority to allowed a fair playing ground for the forthcoming APC gubernatorial primary election. It's obvious that he is busy scheming with Comrade Oshiomhole to destruct the party and turn the state into anarchy.

In short, Comrade Oshiomhole and Pastor Ize-Iyamu should remember the wisdom in the biblical aphorism which teaches that a house built on mere sand at the seaside will eventually be swept away, but that which is built on solid ground will stand irrespective of turbulent torrents that may threatened to uproot it.

Governor Godwin Obaseki democratic government is based on the "people's will" is inevitably "the house built on solid ground" and any miscalculated attempt to embark on any fictitious agenda against Governor Obaseki's second term will end in total fiasco.
