APC under Adams Oshiomhole has entered the dark days. The party is gradually becoming the scorn of Nigerians. Except for illustrious figures like Prsident Muhhamadu Buhari, the party would have become a shadow of itself. This was also the tone of PDP’s swansong when it lost laudable attributes because of its unhindered access to the nation’s treasury and lifeblood.
Oshiomhole’s rascality and irresponsibility has caused the ruling party much hatred and criticism from well-meaning Nigerians. The party shot itself in the foot in Zamfara, Rivers and Imo states because of irresponsible miscalculations.
Even in Bayelsa where hearts are broken, Oshiomhole is the highest loser. After the High court disqualified Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, David Lyon’s running mate a day to the election, Oshiomhole felt he could muscle his way as usual to get an Appeal court order immediately to lead the party to the polls.
A reasonable leader would have substituted the controversial candidate early enough. It beats one’s imagination to note that Degi-Eremienyo was chairman of Nembe LGA, Commissioner for Health and a serving Senator representing Bayelsa state East Senatorial District. Nobody knew of this forgery.
Check it in and out, Dickson played a role in the infamous development. After this judgement, Oshiomhole still had the effrontery to fool Nigerians saying there will be no handover in Bayelsa. That’s an enlarged portrait of Alice in wonderland.
The one that will destroy him and the party is the Imo case study that has been universally condemned. Granted Oshiomhole is dense in the art of manipulation, such a figure can only be a leader figure leading a party to defeat.
