Politics is Local: Major Reasons Why Ize-Iyamu Is Winning More Converts By The Day At The Expense Of Obaseki

Politics is Local: Major Reasons Why Ize-Iyamu Is Winning More Converts By The Day At The Expense Of Obaseki(Opinion)

The last few days have seen a lot of massive realignments of political forces.

We have actually lost count of the number of political appointees that have tendered their resignation from the Obaseki’s Government to switch their allegiance to the political camp of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu in the last 48 hrs alone.

With the rate at which Obaseki’s ship is sinking it is speculated that the last week to the election only Obaseki would be standing alone with his deputy Philip Shaibu.

Many are just waiting to collect the dying minute salary for July and August.

Now, what are the major factors responsible for this one-way mass movement?

Let us look at some reasons why Obaseki would be roundly defeated by Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu and the APC.

APC as a party has a firm structure in all the wards in the 18 LGAs of the State. It has a structure that goes beyond individuals.

” soldier go soldier come barrack remains” That is the apt description of APC.

That structure can never be denied.

Then Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu himself is a political colossus, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s street credibility is unrivalled, his popularity is unparalleled and cuts across party divides.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is very charismatic and highly resourceful, he knows how to use his charm and cajole the people.

Organized and focused with a clear sense of direction, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has a clear cut plan on all his actions from day one to point of execution.

Let me burst your heads with what I mean by organization in petty things that would make one wonder how come POI is ahead of the game all the time.

For example, all the outdoor Mega Billboards at strategic places around the State was secured by Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

The outdoor advertising agency is an appendage of the State Government so one ponders how and when such a blunder was made by an agency controlled by the State.

It was simple, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu secured those spaces as early as last year against the peak period of the elections.

Hence the grudge why those billboards were destroyed by proponents of Obaseki’s 4+4.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has long identified those that can help him win the election and he has since reached out to them.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is determined, firm and decisive, these are qualities of great politicians.

Obaseki, on the other hand, has no personal friend, he cant mention or recognize ten leaders from each Local Government Area of the State.

Obaseki is snobbish and hardly fraternizes with people, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s residence as we speak is a sort of Mecca to local politicians.

Obaseki is boastful and intolerant, these are bad attributes of a politician seeking an elective post.

You can not compare a man that holds a daily session with hundreds of people and bodies to another who spends all his time monitoring the political terrain strictly on WhatsApp groups.

Obaseki has no relationship with the people, all they hear or see of Obaseki are on the dailies and TV channels.

Who controls the structure in APC and PDP? This is the main issue at stake and this is why Obaseki is losing daily supporters and Ize-Iyamu is gaining more converts.

Today the list of the resignation of political appointees are updated every six hours to show how bad it is, and not a single one is leaving Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu and the APC.

Ask yourself why would an APC member who probably has the potentials of having an appointment from the Federal level leave for the PDP where he would not be recognized.

Now, who was behind the string of successes of PDP in the last four years?

The structure that delivered Edo South to PDP in the last presidential election was controlled by who? Pastor was the DG for the campaign in Edo State.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is a movement and an all-rounder. He is an ordained pastor and a street pastor. He preaches love on the pulpit and also preaches love on the street.

He mixes with the elites and dines with the downtrodden. He lives among the professors and even married to one and yet he eats with the street boys in their homes.

No weekend passes without seeing Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu attending at least 10 social functions in Edo State.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is tolerant and accommodating while Obaseki is intolerant and unforgiving.

The PDP structure, unfortunately, is controlled by Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

This election would be an easy walkover for the APC.

Obaseki should spend his last days making peace with all the people he has offended in the course of his short-lived political sojourn.

The Grace of God has departed from Obaseki and the anointing presently is on Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

Politics they say is local, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is a local man and no match for Obaseki.
