The Consensus Arrangement Is Deceptive – Aborisade, Ib’ NE, SE PDP Fed. Reps Aspirant



Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Oyo state, Barrister Niyi Aborisade has insisted that there are no consensus within the party yet, noting that candidates have not been chosen through the arrangement.


Barrister Aborisade made this known in an interview with newsmen in Ibadan.


The human right lawyer and  Ibadan Northeast/Southeast Federal Constituency aspirant who faulted the purported process of picking consensus candidates for the party’s ticket alleged that many aspirants were not carried along in what he described as “deceptive” Consensus arrangement.


He said, in a democratic system of government where the practice of picking candidates through consensus strive, aspirants jostling for the same office should unanimously agree to the mandate of anyone chosen as the flagbearer of the party.


The PDP scribe who further explained that, consensus arrangement should allow aspirants to sign a pact in agreement that the mandate of their followers have been traded for the interest of the party, which he alleged did not play out.


Barrister Aborisade said it was unfair and unjust that some group of people claimed to pick candidates through consensus without the consent of other aspirants who are major stakeholders in the process.


“If there must be any consensus, there must be unanimous decision, there must be an agreement by the aspirants and where there is no agreement, then, there is no consensus” He said.


He explained that the stakeholder’s meetings held with governor Seyi Makinde were to discuss with all aspirants and seek their agreement for consensus as advised by the governor, insisting that no decision has been reached.


Barrister Aborisade said all aspirants should be allowed to slug it out at the party’s primaries and test their popularities, which he said was in line with the dictates of Democratic principles.
