NO ONE CAN BESMIRCH THE NAME ‘EDEBIRI’ PDP IS NOT A PARTY OF FOOLS
The worst form of arrogance is arrogance in ignorance. When people begin to write without proper research and out of desperation it manifest in their writings as in most cases a writer can hardly be separated from their writings.
Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it. This is exactly what I have seen expressed in those who have taken it upon themselves most especially adversaries within the PDP to besmirch the hallowed name of Chief Dr. Solomon Iyobosa Edebiri.
Worst still is when such is coming from those who claim one party. Some said, he decamped from ANPP and others said he didn’t win his ward in the last elections. In fact, some once said that he is not a Benin man, imagine, a traditional Benin Chief. These are the reasons they believe Edebiri should not be given the guber’ ticket. These are what some witless wonders have against Chief Edebiri. Is it not laughable?
All sorts of mud has been slung across Chief Edebiri just to score cheap political points. Some have even gone back 30years to dig up dirt on him but found none. Edebiri has frustrated them all with his stainless character. So when I campaign, I campaign for a man of character. Nice guys may appear to finish even last, but usually, they are running a different race.
Chief Edebiri’s doggedness, consistence, insistence and persistence in his electoral bid, only portray him as a passionate fellow who is more than willing and ready to emancipate and elevate this state from the lowly wildness of obscurity, unemployment, economic meltdown, low education standard etc, and place her on the lofty height of visibility.
The number of times one fails does not deter a man of ambition and passion. Winston Churchill says, success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.
It is most disturbing that at this crucial point in the history of Edo State, at this age of literacy and civilization, some still decide to think like those from the stone age and still characterised with Neanderthal tendencies.
They have discovered that Chief Edebiri’s immaculate and exceptional disposition is without equal and that the good man has no skeleton whatsoever in his cupboard.
They have discovered that they have nothing whatsoever against this noble Benin Chief whose integrity and credibility, whose responsibility and transparency and whose love for and from the masses cuts across party affiliations, ethnic boundaries and religious divides.
They have discovered that my great party the PDP has decided to tow the line of credibility and integrity in choosing her guber’ candidate and therefore many of them have been sponsored out of frustration to raise dust and throw mud to stain the revered name of Edebiri. But when the evil plotter beats their drum for the downfall of the innocent, God never allow such drum to sound.
Still, Chief Edebiri rises above taunts and remains unruffled by these cheap lies. They can only help sell and promote him the more and make him better not bitter. His praise his lost, who stays till all commend. No, Chief Edebiri is equal to the task. He does not need commendations from all and sundry. He believes that a great man is one who build castles with the bricks others throw at him.
Please keep them coming. I once advised in an earlier article that he who has no enemies should find a way of making some. They only end up as stepping stones to your goals, dreams and aspirations. They are good propellers.
Only that, it is shameful that in an age where credibility and integrity can no longer be done without in leadership, some still, choose to campaign on the ground of long term membership of a party ,’ruggedity’, and all sorts of shameful dispositions and when that is not enough they bring up allegations and falsehood to assassinate characters.
It is indeed a pity and because they are driven by self gratification, they will see nothing good in integrity. When an infected eye takes a look at something all will seem infected to it, just like all looks yellow to a jaundiced eye.
EDEBIRI REMAINS AN ASPIRANT TO BEAT IN THE EDO 2016 GUGER’ RACE and I can only quote from Bob Marley to these internet urchins and their sponsors;
Emancipate yourself from mental slavery
Non but ourselves can free our own mind…
PDP MUST LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF TRUTH.
WE WILL CONTINUE TO INSIST ON INTEGRITY AND CREDIBILITY
