Edo voters have a problem to contend with while their election lasts: their governor is baying—or let’s say mooing—because he didn’t find INEC card reader configured the way he wanted—that the inbuilt AI couldn’t recognize and welcome the black hulk standing behind his wife among other voters waiting to vote at ward 4, Unit 19 in Oredo LGA on Saturday.
So Gov Godwin Do-little Obaseki, bloated with anger, managed to vote, and then came out to moo, swirling his head as he addressed journalists.
“I waited for one and half hour on the queue before exercising my franchise. It’s a bit disappointing,” he said after voting.”
The card readers were slower when he voted four years ago, all fine enough then for his franchise(What the heck is his franchise if not Afriinvest share?); and the gizmo was all good for the election of such a sluggish politician like him.
But now he whined that he expected INEC to have been smarter, and their card readers lightning fast since he’s now down on his luck, and his APC rival Ize Iyamu, is now in the ruling party.
“Giving that this is a sole day election, I expected better planning for this election. Card readers were very slow and that’s the situation everywhere.”
To be frank, Obaseki had no expectation. He’s such a wimp. Had his deputy, Phillip Shuaibu who doubles as his thug, not pushed him, Obaseki could have backed off from the contest after his faked documents and doctored two-credit varsity certificate disqualified him in the APC primary.
Well, Rivers Gov Wike and others had him take the plunge. All Obaseki can do is flounder and waddle and make excuse because he knows that his remaining blind loyalists will help him scream louder.
His media handler Crusoe Osagie just saw what was happening to the card readers:
“Voters are being disenfranchised and we are constrained to say that this is sabotage. Specifically, in Oredo Ward 1, Unit 20 and other places where the Governor is clearly popular, the card readers are not working.”
Too early, boyo, to sing this song.
The news is: Obaseki voted and left his own polling unit sick with fear.
