Funke Adesiyan Loses APC Primary Ticket As Party Swaps Her Victory For Another Candidate

Nollywood actress Funke Adesiyan who dumped the PDP party for the ruling party in order to achieve her political goal few months ago has experienced the bitter side of politics after the party swapped her victory for another candidate.

The actress planning to represent the Ibadan South East Constituency at the Oyo State House of Assembly won the party’s primary election last week only to be told another candidate has been given her position.

The disappointed thespian expressed her concern in a statement released few hours ago.

The statement titled Politics is such a torment reads:

“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 you.
Funke Adesiyan”.

    Not until when the election is lost than you see them talking reality. And the reality is, a true Democracy is a Government Of The People, By The People, and For The People. And not Government Of The People, By Ajimobi, By Tinubu, and For The People. And just like you said Funke, I too will never understand why we all go to the Poll if some Bastards of a Politician will force an Administrator upon us. Then, what is the purpose of voting ( Government of The People By The People) when the system is this corrupt and Bastardized? So Funke, as stupid as you yourself are, just accept the fact that in Nigeria, we are not practicing DEMOCRACY, we are actually a DEMOCRAZY. You, your colleagues, and a host of Nigerians, are an Educated Illiterates.
