The recent election in Edo North Senatorial District in Edo state has sparked a lot of reactions from Nigerians. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Adams Oshiomhole of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the polls, with a whopping 107,110 votes. The incumbent Senator Francis Alimekhena of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) scored 55,344 votes, which was not enough to retain his position.
However, what caught the attention of many Nigerians was the mammoth crowd that turned up for Adams Oshiomhole during his triumph welcome. In a video posted on Facebook, Oshiomhole was seen at Aduwawa market thanking the residents and asking them to vote massively against PDP in Edo state. The crowd was enormous, and the atmosphere was electrifying as supporters chanted his name and congratulated him on his victory.
Many Nigerians have taken to Facebook to express their opinions on the matter. While some commended the crowd for their show of support, others were skeptical about the level of political influence displayed. Some Nigerians expressed their concerns that the crowd may have been paid to turn up for the former governor and former national chairman of the APC.
Despite the mixed reactions, the triumph welcome of Adams Oshiomhole has shown the level of influence and popularity he still commands in Edo state. The former governor has always been known for his charismatic personality and his ability to mobilize the masses. His victory has further solidified his position as a prominent figure in Nigerian politics.
The triumph welcome of Adams Oshiomhole has stirred up a lot of reactions from Nigerians. While some have praised the show of support, others have expressed concerns about the level of political influence.
