As GO was busy crushing Godfatherism in Edo State, many personal relationships amongst friends and families in the Edo Diaspora were also taking a “Tanking
Nobody was prepared for the bloody nose of Edo2020. It was deep rooted because it was contested between 2 Edo brothers, or may I say 3, all possessing profound loyalties, friendships and affiliations built over many years that ended up been severely strained.
In the UK Diaspora for example, the biggest attack was aimed at the current Edo National Association UK President, Dr. Charles Omorodion, a man who has been a pillar in the Edo UK diaspora community for over 25 years, and is responsible in one way or another for the formation of over 60% of the Edo unions and associations in the UK that supported GO.
Dr. Omorodion has been a long-term friend of POI, long before Edo2020. He supported his friend, POI, in Edo2020 like he has always done in all elections involving POI. But this time, all his personal friendships and affiliations in the Edo UK diaspora Communities, built over 3 decades, took serious offence with his choice. We overlooked everything else he has done for us, including the many times he has put our interest ahead of his family and his professional career. The fact is Dr. Omorodion has always had the best interest of Edos in diaspora at heart and we appreciate that. This fall-out situation of Edo2020 is not synonymous to only Charles Omorodion but its rife across the Edo diaspora with serious stories emanating from Edo households in Canada, Netherlands, and Spain.
The election is over, and It is time to make up. Time to demonstrate to the wives, like Mrs Omorodion, that their husbands have not been wasting time on us, that we are appreciative, and that Edo2020 was ordained to take Edos to higher glory in a battle that will test the fabric of all our core beliefs and friendships. This was no ordinary battle and it was never personal.
GO is now the governor of Edo State, “Ogbane” (APC, PDP and the Edo diaspora). We should be united with him to enable him to govern efficiently and ensure we all do our best for Edo development worldwide, especially in Edo state.
To this end Edo Connect is hosting a make-up hilarious evening called “How Market, Edo2020” on both Zoom and Facebook. The date is this weekend October 4, 2020. An evening of all pidgin English banter from both APC and PDP supporters in Edo 2020. Get your drinks, pepper soup and kponkponkis ready anywhere you are. All Edos are invited. Our guest will include
