When they called, I told them they were cooking bad soup – Osakue Speaks On Obaseki’s Alleged Successor

0 137

Businessman and prominent member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Martins Osakue, has stated that it is improper for a state’s governor to choose their successor.

This was said by Osakue in a conversation with Vanguard.

He maintained that a key component of democracy is blocked when governors choose who would succeed them.

In response to a question concerning Asue Ighodalo, the presumed successor to Governor Godwin Obaseki, the PDP leader stated he was unaware of any accomplishments the politician has achieved for Edo State.

Osakue revealed that he alerted the parties involved that the soup they were making was subpar when he was called about the situation.

He claims, “I don’t know him. He is unknown to us. Since 1978, I have been involved in politics here for more than 40 years. I belonged to the Nigerian Unity Party (UPN). I was one of PDP’s original members. You know someone’s background when you know them. I consider this individual and what he has accomplished for my constituency in terms of education.

“How has he contributed to education? To what extent is he training people? What free education program is available to him? What has he accomplished for his neighborhood? You can supply us with some folks who are in Edo Central. That’s what being a leader does.

They gave me a call. I informed them that their soup was not up to par. I didn’t hold back. That soup has gone bad already. That endeavor is doomed from the start.

Morally speaking, it is even improper for governors to choose their own successors. Why? It prevents accountability and transparency, two essential components of democracy. Why have you chosen this individual?
