Buhari has shown he belongs to someone – PDP claims

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of manipulating the Wednesday’s Edo governorship election.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had on Thursday declared the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Godwin Obaseki as the winner of the keenly contested governorship election in the state.
Following Obaseki’s emergence, Buhari had congratulated the governor elect, saying his victory was good for democracy.
However, PDP while reacting to Buhari’s congratulatory message said the president had shown that he belonged to somebody, a diversion from his inaugural speechhttp://dailypost.ng/2015/05/29/i-belong-to-everybody-i-belong-to-nobody-buhari-takes-first-shot/ where he had said, “I belong to nobody and I belong to everybody.”
A statement by the opposition party’s spokesperson, Dayo Adeyeye insisted that the election was rigged.
The statement reads, “President Buhari’s congratulatory message to Godwin Obaseki has finally revealed his hand in the Edo guber election imbroglio. We note with sadness that he had never extended similar congratulatory messages or goodwill to PDP candidates who were victorious in various elections since he assumed office.
“In Bayelsa state where his party with the support of security agencies virtually declared war on Governor Seriake Dickson and the people of Bayelsa, the president refused to congratulate the PDP candidate who against all odds managed to survive the APC onslaught.
“His aides claimed then that the president was not in the business of congratulating election winners. Why the sudden change of heart now if we may ask? The only plausible explanation is that the president was eager to confer legitimacy on an otherwise badly flawed election in which his party acted like Shina Rambo, the notorious armed robber. Only that this time they were robbing the people of their votes.
“The action of the president belies his statement that he belongs to nobody but belongs to everybody. The president has shown where he belongs. We recall that President Jonathan dutifully never failed to congratulate opposition candidates who won elections during his tenure, including Adams Oshiomhole. That is what is expected of a statesman.


“We did not lose the gubernatorial election in Edo state. We can therefore not be described as ‘bad losers’ according to the APC state chairman in Edo state, Anselm Ojezua. We were robbed by very shameless election riggers.”
