When it came to crunch time, the PDP let Adeleke down. He must have felt like an orphan.
Almost everyone knew Omisore would be vital.
You can ask the US embassy, the PDP sent no one.
Saraki went with Okupe who is just coming out of retirement. Saraki’s entourage had looked rich until the APC visited Omisore.
The APC showed desperation and put its birthright on the line. The party chairman was there, six governors went with him. They must have seen the chickens offered at that shrine by the PDP and they must have offered cows.
Even if Omisore were a pastor, the PDP chairman was in Wike’s boy-quarters in Port Harcourt. Wike himself was not interested. He is peering down his political microscope looking for the most painful ways to deal with the party if they mess with him.
Okowa didnt show up.
Fayose was working out his exit route.
Even that refugee , the governor of Kwara, didn’t show up.
They left it to Davido and his uncle.
The APC meticulously took back Lasun whose intimidating influence in Orolu LGA was proved last week. While the APC patched up its net, the PDP ran helter skelter, from pillar to post and then to court.
It was injury time.
Even Fani Kayode who is from Ife was nowhere to be seen. He must have been in Abuja. From there, he was calling Omisore and must have warned him not to join hands with the Fulani jihadists!
He saw no need to lend a helping hand in knocking at doors for Adeleke but he will take to Twitter today and let out emotions.
Where was Ben Bruce? Where was his love for the party? He was tweeting it from Abuja while Ganduje was sleeping in Ile Ife.
We can forgive Dino Melaye. He is not sure of his own ticket yet but where were Gbenga Daniel and Atiku? Atiku was needed in Orolu!
These social media noises cant help anyone. The leaders of the PDP failed Adeleke and they failed him big time but you know what?
They will blame it on Buhari.
