Edo State Governorship Election Is a Last Chance for Oshiomhole to Retrieve His Position [Opinion]

The ruling All Progressive Congress APC's national convention is a golden chance for the ousted National Chairman of party, Adams Oshiomhole to resume back his lost political stake.

Recalls Oshiomhole was first suspended from the APC by his ward 10 executive few months ago in what is part of his battle with the state governor, Godwin Obaseki.

An Abuja high court, in March, also ruled that his suspension was legal and ordered Mr Oshiomhole to stop parading himself as APC national chairman.

However, the suspension was initially lifted after the appellate court granted a stay of execution of the high court’s order.

But finally the Court of Appeal upheld his suspension as the National Chairman of the APC few weeks ago.

Oshiomhole suppose to commence his political permutations in due regards to the national convention of the APC, scheduled to hold later in December 2020, but if at all his plan proved abortive, then he should finally accept his fate in good faith.

Because it is expected of a very politician, such of energetic and vibrant Oshiomhole to work with more than one plan, in case if A failed then B should work in that regard.

It's inarguably Oshiomhole might get a landslide victory at the national convention if decided to take part in process, As the National Caretaker Committee Chairman was once a Oshiomhole's boy, because he held the position of the sectary to the APC before was elected as the Executive Governor of Yobe State in 2019 general election.

Moreover, as I observed the National Caretaker Committee Members of the party are very loyal to the National Leader of APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmad Tinubu, the Lagos State former governor, who happens to be Oshiomole's main backer.

Hence with the aforementioned things, if the plan A fails be realize by Oshiomhole to be national chairman again, he might switch to plan B.

As you will all agree with me that the eyes of Oshiomhole is still on the chairmanship position, because it is quite logical that he didn't plan that he might be removed from that position so soon, the game just came suddenly and capsized him politically, but one of the ability of great politicians is their ability to rise again after their fall.

To this end, I'm urging Oshiomhole to try aa much as possible to his that the APC's candidate in Edo State forthcoming governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu emerge victorious in that guber race.

Ize-Iyamu's victory is a sign that Oshiomhole's Plan A might work for him to bounce back stronger to be national chairman of the APC again, since he has the full backing of Tinubu and many Members of the National Caretaker Committee of the party.
