LP guber ticket sold to highest bidder in Edo State, says group



Off season election for Labour Party in Nigeria’s Edo State appears not be going well after a group, Edo “Obidient Movement”, alleged that its governorship ticket was sold to the highest bidder.

The ‘Obidients’ political followers of Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the party last year.

The group in Edo also expressed concern on the activities of the leadership of the Edo State Labour Party that threw up its governorship candidate in the just concluded party’s governorship primary in the state.

The leader of the group, Comrade Ikhuenbor Felix, while addressing journalists in Benin City during a press briefing, alleged that the national and the State Working Committee, Local Government Areas and Wards Executives compromised the process.

He said the party which supposed to have provided alternative platform for the citizens of the state, has become the worst and conducted the worst primary election in the state.

Comrade Felix said that they witnessed a situation where some compromised party executives at the national, state, LGAs and wards openly traded the party’s ticket to the highest bidder, thereby denying people with marketable credentials that could favourably compete with other parties candidates.

“In a bid to make quick and unholy wealth, LP totally disregarded competence, credibility, integrity and antecedents of aspirants and sold their birthright like Esau by going after their temporary table food and survival”, Felix said.

He alleged further that there was clear woeful dollarization of the party’s primary as an aspirant with the highest volume of dollars, rained on some compromised executives both those in the national and in the state with their manipulated delegates, got the party’s ticket.
