Funke Adesiyan Is Not Quite Happy That Her Hard-Earned Mandate for a Seat at Oyo State House of Assembly Was Taken From Her

   

Some days ago, the wife of the president, Aisha Buhari called out the All Progressives Congress (APC) party for the irregularities marring its primary elections.

According to her, it is disheartening that some aspirants, who purchased the exorbitant nomination forms, got screened, cleared and campaigned vigorously but didn’t find their names on election day, only to find out that automatic tickets have been given to someone else.

Nollywood actress, Funke Adesiyan seem to be the latest victim ofAPC’s irregularities. Four days ago, the actress won the primary election of Ibadan South-East, with 237 votes against her contender who had 32 votes.

Two days later, the actress shared on her Instagram page that her mandate had been snatched from her and given to someone else.

She wrote,

Dear friends,

We have come to the end of a long journey. A very rigorous and eventful one. The people of Ibadan South East 2 have spoken. They spoke loudly and clearly.  The journey of the last one year has been halted, and I thank you all for standing by me. For believing in my vision and for throwing your weight behind me in critical moments. I will never  take this significant support for granted.

The primary election has come and gone and I have been made to believe and accept the outcome in good fate.

While I am not quite happy that my hard-earned mandate was taken from me, as this stands against the principle with which I stand for, I can’t go against the wish of our great party,  All Progressives Congress (APC). “I can’t understand why people, who bought forms sold at exorbitant prices, went for primaries and emerged winners only to be told that their names had been swapped for other anointed candidates”. One may be tempted to ask why we had primaries in the first place if the party’s hidden agenda was to impose candidates?

This is one old injustice that has continued to dwarf the progress and entrenchment of internal democracy, one that has denied many people the full blessings of fulfilling their ambition politically.
There is no better evidence of this than the brazen act of injustice that forced me to surrender my mandate.

I urge all my supporters not to be wary as this is a phase that will soon pass.
Today, I hold in my heart nothing but love for my people as I call on you all to not despair of our present difficulties but to believe, always, in the promise and greatness of our party (APC), Oyo State and Nigeria because nothing is inevitable here.

I implore you all to go all out and vote for the APC in the 2019 general election and ensure that we record a resounding victory.
Thank you and God bless Oyo state.

Funke Adesiyan.

Yes we did it! I wish to thank Almighty Allah for his mercies. I wish to thank His Excellency Governor Abiola Ajimobi who gave a chance for free and fair primaries in my local Government yesterday despite pressure of imposition by some elements. Thank you to Learders of our party, APC at the state and Local government level for entrusting me with this mandate. To the glory of God, I won the primary election of Ibadan south East 2 with 207 votes against my contender who had 32 votes. I wish to thank all our leaders and delegates for their unquestionable believe in the brand FUNKE ADESIYAN. Thank you for not allowing the sham that almost marred our people process yesterday. To every little boy and girl out there dreaming, dream tall. Never let anyone stop you. #funkeadesiyan #funke4sure
