You will recall that on March 24th 2016, Edo PDP issued a statement warning Governor Adams Oshiomhole not to ILLEGALLY EXTEND THE TENURE OF THE COUNCIL CHAIRMEN.
You will also recall that the garrulous SA Media to the governor Mr. Mayaki in response to the press statement denied it categorically that the governor and government had no such plan.
As at this evening, our attention has been drawn to the order paper of tomorrow, Tuesday, 5th April 2016, of the Edo State House of Assembly which will read a bill for a law to amend/ elongate the tenure of Edo council chairmen with 3 months,. To achieve this illegality, the rules of the house will be suspended and the bill will passed.
It will interest Edo people to know that this is not been done in the interest of Edo people, but to satisfy the selfish and egoistic wimps of governor Adams Oshiomhole who is desperate to impose his surrogate on APC as governorship candidate as only elected council officials can be delegates to the kangaroo congress he is planning for his party.
We want to use this medium to once again caution governor Adams. His action is not only illegal, it is primitive and is an assault on the sensibility of Edo People.
Edo PDP advises the governor not to go down this path but to as a matter of urgency instruct his comatose EDSIEC to begin preparations for elections to hold on or before April 22nd, 2016.
Edo PDP…listening to the cries of Edo People.
