…some politicians already dying of undisclosed illnesses suspected to be COVID-19
Details have emerged about how the former Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has perfected plans to expose aging politicians in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State to coronavirus, with an intent to cause them to succumb to the virus.
Recall that Oshiomhole, who is the National Chairman of the APC, has continued to insist on direct primaries as the option for the state’s primary election in the run up to the September 2020 gubernatorial elections.
This is as some top politicians in the state, who mysteriously died recently, are said to have died from complications of COVID-19, which were undetected and thereby not treated.
It was gathered that the former governor allegedly survived the virus and is confident that he would not stand any risk should he be further exposed in a large gathering of people, which is what obtains in the direct primary method, whereby politicians congregate in over 2000 units and 192 wards across the state to select a candidate to fly the party’s flag.
A source familiar with the schemes, but who sought anonymity, said, “Oshiomhole doesn’t care about politicians. If he cared, he would know that the party leaders and chieftains are aged and are the most at risk should they be exposed to coronavirus.
“The plan is to expose this people. They won’t survive it. Most of this people have had surgeries; others are either diabetic or with other co-morbidities.
“If you are very observant, you would have noticed that some aged politicians are already dying of undisclosed ailments. Some of these persons actually died of COVID-19. But Oshiomhole doesn’t care. We have had top politicians die in Edo North; Edo South and Edo Central. The details are there, go and check the facts.”
Another impeccable source said it was important to ensure that aged politicians are protected from the virus, as it is very possible that a lot of people in the cities would be travelling to their villages to cast their votes in their units, thereby exposing more persons to the virus.
