Edo PDP To Oshiomhole: Explain Mama Akara Judgment

BENIN—EDO State chapter of the Peoples
Democratic Party, PDP, has asked a former
governor of the state and All Progressives
Congress, APC, leader, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, to
explain what he meant when he referred to the
tribunal verdict as “Mama Akara judgement.” The PDP said there was more than meets the eye
in Oshiomhole’s remarks shortly after the
judgement was read, that the tribunal’s verdict was
not more than “Mama Akara judgement,” with the
party suggesting that Oshiomhole might have
inadvertently exposed how his party purchased the verdict. Edo State chairman of the PDP, Chief Dan Orbih,
who made the call while reacting to his party’s loss
at the tribunal, said the statement credited to
Oshiomhole cannot be taken on its face value,
adding that the former governor, had exposed the
behind-the-scene process that led to the judgement. He said: “I watched former Governor Oshiomhole
on national television describing Friday’s
judgement as Mama Akara judgement. This is
about the first time Oshiomhole will be describing
things the way they are in his political life. Oshiomhole “We know what goes into the making of akara
and we also know that the Mama Akara will not
part with her akara for nothing. So, we are
demanding from Oshiomhole to tell Edo people,
and indeed Nigerians, what was handed to the
Mama Akara before she let go of her akara.” Meanwhile, the Edo PDP has given reasons why
the party will not accept Friday’s judgement of the
tribunal, pointing out that the tribunal threw away
the results obtained from the inconclusive ballot
recount and that the tribunal expected the party
and its candidate to call on over 2,000 witnesses in 14 days amongst others.
