I Made A Big Mistake Supporting Godwin Obaseki In The Past Governorship Election - Adams Oshiomole

I Made A Big Mistake Supporting Godwin Obaseki In The Past Governorship Election - Adams Oshiomole

In an open address to a crowd in his residence in Edo State today, sacked national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomole openly said, his support for Godwin Obaseki in the past was one great mistake, one he would never repeat.

The Edo State 2020 gubernatorial election slated for later in September this year has caused so much drama, it all begin with the alleged rift between the then national chairman of the ruling party, Adams Oshiomole and the current governor of the state, Godwin Obaseki.

The duo started having issues right from the early months of 2019, their rift which was as a result of things not openly revealed to the public trended for quite a while, senior members and officials of the ruling party All Progressive Congress, APC have severally tried to resolve the issue, but all to no avail.

Former All Progressive Congress’ National Chairman, Adams Oshiomole who was suspended and later sacked has began a campaign move for the APC governorship election candidate in Edo state. he started his campaign for the former People’s Democratic Party’s Ize-Iyamu, today in his residence, hosting a crowd of All Progressive Congress Supporters.

Before now, recall that Adams Oshiomole had stated that he had not endorsed nor shown support for Pastor Ize-Iyamu. Nobody knows what has brought the sudden show of support and endorsement by the embattled former national chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC.

Adams Oshiomole in his said that he been I Abuja for a while now, but he is back and he must set things straight, beginning with the defeat of the present Governor Godwin Obaseki. He stated that his stay in Abuja has brought a lot of negative decisions to the state and that he is therefore back, not going anywhere again.

In his words;

“I have been in Abuja, leaving the state to somebody I regret supporting. My support for Godwin Obaseki was a great mistake. But I am back, going nowhere until I recover the state from his hands. He knows nothing about farming and therefore cannot rule the state that farms.”

Adams Oshiomole who held a broom, the symbol of the ruling party, All Progressive Congress was seen jumping around as the crowd which were gathered in his house hailed and chanted victory songs. He gave them assurance of victory as he danced along the chants.

My Opinion: Oshiomole seem to be ready to destroy the political career of Godwin Obaseki and anyone that comes his way. His sudden support for Pastor Ize-Iyamu is a proof that Adams Oshiomole wants to continually be in charge of the affairs of the state.

From Abuja, he is back to Edo state and is set to take charge again. To me, he had problems with Governor Godwin Obaseki because the governor refused to be controlled by him. Pastor Ize-Iyamu, if he wins may have to face the same struggle for independence.

The election will come and we will know the winner, all we ask and pray is that it be a free and fair elction. Free of violence and complications.
