A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Kassim Afegbua has come out to say that the ousting of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as national chairman of the dissolved All Progressives Congress (APC) is a 2023 presidential election permutation.
Prince Kassim Afegbua revealed this in a recent chat with the press today.
According to him, there is nothing spectacular about Comrade Oshiomhole’s exit and he was simply a victim of 2023 political calculations, especially by those who believe he would be a stumbling block to their selfish ambitions.
He added that Buhari does not seem to understand the dynamics of the political interplay of forces ahead of the 2023 Presidency election.
His words, “There is nothing spectacular about Comrade Oshiomhole’s exit. He was just a victim of 2023 political calculations especially by those people who found him too strong to bend to their whims and caprices.
“The President does not appear fit enough to understand the dynamics of the political interplay of forces. You have Governors Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi, Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna, Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti and Simon Lalong of Plateau states who should sit down and face governance in their states but getting too pre-occupied with 2023 Presidency.”
“We will join hands collectively with the APC candidate to ensure that Godwin Obaseki does not return. I am PDP member, but I will vote APC.
“A man with the humility of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is better than a governor who fights everyone who disagrees with him.
“Edo has become too polarised over avoidable and needless battles. Let us have a new leadership that will usher in quiet and peace to everyone. The noises from the Obaseki aspiration have become too polluted and cannot be in the best interest of anyone.”
