  1. Midwest Times, your bias in this whole Edo APC primaries issue has been made so nauseatingly obvious. For any organization that has a modicum of self respect or integrity, even if you had your preferences, you could at least have pretended to be neutral for the purpose of your readers. You’re gleefully dwelling on the negatives arising from the primaries, most of which are only a figment of your imagination. That the state SWC. has thrown their weight behind Okpebholo has not appeared anywhere in your reports.
    Please, as a regular and avid reader of your newsletter, I urge you, for the purpose of maintaining your credibility and integrity, balance your report.
