Obaseki’s Edo Victory: Tinubu Failed To Learn From History

 


The September 19 gubernatorial election in Edo State has come and gone, won and lost, according to the results declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The win is as exciting to the winners as the loss is heart-wrenching to the losers.

The winner of the Edo gubernatorial tussle, Godwin Obaseki, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), garnered 307,955 votes to defeat his main challenger, Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who garnered 223,619 votes.

Mr Obaseki had defected to the PDP from the APC when he was disqualified from participating in the APC governorship primary election over alleged irregularities in his academic qualifications. Many saw his disqualification as high-handed, wondering why the party that gave him the platform to contest in 2016 would deny him the same platform barely four years later.

Nigerians React As Kessington Adebutu Releases Last Conversation With Late Nigerian Politician, Buruji Kashamu



Nigerians on social media are reacting to the leaked video of late Senator Kashamu Buruji seeking forgiveness from billionaire businessman, Chief Kessington Adebutu, shortly before his death. Kashamu who died on August 8 of COVID-19, had called Adebutu from his sickbed to seek forgiveness over the differences they had from a business deal that went wrong. 

Kashamu who spoke in Yoruba, pleaded with the businessman to forgive him for any wrongdoing. Adebutu on his part accepted his forgiveness and also asked Kashamu to withdraw all the lawsuits he filed against him to show he is serious in his bid to seek forgiveness. 

Nigerians have been reacting to the video. While some found it distasteful that a video like this can find its way to the public since it was supposed to be a private conversation, others are of the opinion that the video making its way to the public, proves that the deceased senator was a good man for seeking for forgiveness from someone who he felt he had offended before his death.
