I read through the boring, dishonest and dissasociative response by one media team that calls itself THE BULLETS OF THE HARMLESS RABBIT MEDIA TEAM(BHR), it was out of sheered determination I was able gloss through the response. This is a before election media team that nobody longer reads as ita content are not only far flung from our present political reality in Edo State, the writer suffers much of Disassociative Disorder, a disorders that involve experiencing a disconnection and lack of continuity between thoughts, memories, surroundings, actions and identity. People with dissociative disorders escape reality in ways that are involuntary and unhealthy and cause problems with functioning in everyday life.
Let Akemokue Lukman and his group who are having hangover from their disorientations and disassociation as members of OSM go to Oba Market in Benin and mention Obaseki to see the reaction of the common people who voted for him last year. They should go to Akoko-Edo where there are no teachers in schools or Esan where security and all the ills of the society have been left unattended to.
Let me dismiss his fallacies contained in his response to my article. First, Lukman said PDP needs Obaseki more than Obaseki needs PDP. That’s a lie; Obaseki has become to PDP the type of liability he was to APC before he was thrown out. He came and wanted the executive of the party dissolved with deceitful synonym of harmonization. He was rebuked and sent to see what the constitution says about party elections since he is not used to being lawful. Mala Buni can poach him for all we care, he is no longer a factor to winning election for PDP as his failure has reached feverish point. Lukman should point to what significant project(s) can be tired to Obaseki’s name in Etsako where him and Shiabu are from. Some PDP governors around who supported him are hugely disappointed in him…call Governors Okowa, Wike, Udom…they will tell you they are disappointed in him. They wish the way other governors go to each other’s states to commission projects, some will will be invited to do the same in Edo State. Lukman, there is no project to commission here! Open your eyes!
Secondly, PDP gave him ticket, that fact is not in doubt. Since Lukman is a political nitwit, there is no way he can understand what measure of favour the party did for these two who had shown ingratitude to the party.
Thirdly, if Lukman is a political strategist as he claim he is with the irresponsible Rabbit Hole Media Team, he would have known that first, APC was not defeated based on Obaseki’s performance, but based hugely on sentiments that Oshiomhole cannot dictate who wins and who looses in Edo State, which became the greatest undoing of the electorates today. There is no single Edo voter who is not regretting his decision of voting Obaseki except the Lukman’s dishonest likes. Obaseki and Shiabu couldn’t have won the election without a structure like PDP, which was a very viable option to APC that tossed him out.Lukman should know what time it takes to build a political party structure from unit level to state. Perhaps he should have advised them to take up tickets from APGA then to see if they could win, not now that they have won with PDP.
If Lukman says he is not aware that the Obaseki, and Shaibu(who is now a relegated deputy) have become godfathers unto themselves, I wonder what kind of monster he is awaiting to emerge as a godfather. He runs a one man show and Lukman calls it mere delay, for one year? He demolishes houses of perceived opponents, he revokes lands of those he who opposed him during elections, he has sole administrators at LGA levels, he want to enforce forced vaccination without backing it by law…civil servants were locked outside because of this vaccination that is optional worldwide. This is the same governor that kept palliatives to rot in store rooms when people needed food the most during the lockdown. He should be ready for showdown with civil societies in the state as his tyrannical nature will come to an end with this illegal forced vaccination.
What other ways does Lukman want to understand what Godfatherism is all about?
Lukman is the individual that need to look for what he ought to be doing with his time instead of writing BULLETS OF RABBITS in praise worship of the the governor that people are no longer reading. Lukman should go to the governor’s Facebook page to see the amount of darts in their hundreds Edo State citizens pour at him…they insult him whenever he posts anything. Obaseki has squandered the goodwill of the entire people of Edo State; Lukman does not need a seance to tell him this. 5 years down the line, nothing to show for his administration that is so visionless and without direction. We can’t wait for him to go back to APC or whichever party he wish to; PDP was better of in the opposition than this.
