Things That Oshiomole Should Do to Get Relevance In Nigerian Politics Again (Opinion)

For watchers of political events in Edo state between 2007 when Oshiomhole was first elected as governor of the state and the role he played in the election of Obaseki in 2016.

It is very much rare for any Nigerian to say that he/she does not know Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole, as he is among the major stronghold in Nigerian Politics, even though he is irrelevant in Nigerian Politics as at today, but I know some of you will fully agree with me that his capacity cannot be jettisoned due to his previously established political stake in the ruling All Progressive Congress APC.

However, Adams Oshiomhole, who happens to be national chairman of APC, is also someone who is well known in Edo State politics and Nigeria at large, in which as at today, his name rings bell in Edo politics. Then permit me to take you down to 2016 election in Edo state, which happens to mark the end of the tenure of Oshiomhole as Edo state governor, then I hope you could recollect that the election that brought Gov. Obaseki to power caused disagreement between Oshiomhole his former deputy, Dr. Pius Odubu due to clash of interest.

Some of us could still remember the rough roads oshiomole and other APC leaders went through in trying to make Obaseki the candidate of the APC. I knew the strength of the people that were persuaded by the then Oshiomhole to be part of Obaseki’s political army and I know how tough that battle was considering his political obscurity in 2016.

Hence, with Oshiomole's political issue in the state, the situation might turn out favorably for him if the candidate of APC win the state forthcoming governorship election scheduled to hold on 19th September.

Standing on a neutral ground, it is inarguable that Oshiomhole who happens to be one of the founding elements of APC and Obaseki's political godfather in Edo, also his roles to the progress of the party is not something that can be forgotten in hurry, even though he fell out with Obaseki

In facts, Oshiomhole can win the Edo State for APC, as he has more chances than Gov. Obaseki as the political gospel will soon change to a new one by the grace of God, which will be piloted with the previously established forces of Oshiomhole, coupled with the new forces he is going to acquire in his processes of sponsoring Osagie Ize-Iyamu as the state governor.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has the full backing of the energetic former labour leader, Oshiomhole.

Hence with that, it is inarguable that Oshiomhole will be able to revive his relevancy in both the state and National politics, which will in return be a political deal of mutual gain, which will in return give birth to his relevancy, and then he would also be able to establish a new political protocol in APC.
