After all Oshiomhole’s antics of kneeling down, instigation of crises in the state, mendacious claims and spending heavily on procurement of crowd failed, he decided to run to the Presidential villa today, 17th August, 2020, where it was gathered that he spent over two hours waiting outside to see the President, but gatecrashed, as he was never on any appointment to that effect.
Eagle Eye Crew gathered that it took the intervention of Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Ibrahim Ganduje, to prevail on Buhari to at least receive Oshiomhole, and be at liberty to either accept or reject whatever request and or report he has come with, even though he is no longer a member of the All Progressives Congress ( APC), following his suspension by a competent jurisdiction, both as national chairman of the party and member.
Analysts have however concluded that the uninvited guest’s impromptu visit is not unconnected with the 19th September, 2020 gubernatorial election in Edo State, wherein the All Progressives Congress ( APC) and it’s candidate(s) Pastor( Mallam) Farouk Osagie Ize-Iyamu and his running mate, Mallam Gani Ahudu are presently embroiled and enmeshed in hydra-headed issues, ranging from alleged quadruple Identity and money laundering cases pending before courts of competent jurisdictions, apart from the seemingly outright rejection of the candidates by the good people of Edo state.
Recall that the APC campaign council decided to boycott and abandon the whole campaign and election process for Oshiomhole, over what they described as hijack of the process and use of unconventional and desperate methods in the campaigns by Oshiomhole, and the unsellable nature of the candidates, in view of his image which has over the years been destroyed beyond redemption by Oshiomhole.
Is President Muhammadu Buhari going to succumb to Oshiomhole’s whims and caprices and other subterfuges, and mortgage his integrity with regards to the process? Can Mallam Ahudu survive the quadruple identity crises in view of the glaring judicial precedent/ template already set in the case of David Lyon of Bayelsa state, as well adjudicated by fearless Honourable Justice Mary Odili of the Supreme Court? Are those still clapping for a man with glaring integrity crisis issue not under indoctrination?
For the avoidance of doubts about President Buhari’s disposition to the unscheduled visit by Oshiomhole, he has through his body language communicated his position on the above, by giving him( Oshiomhole) a very cold reception, which signifies his unwelcome to the villa.
