During the era of Adams Oshiomhole in the ACN while seeking election as Governor and when is party, the APC, was an opposition, he was known to be championing the course of free and credible election that will reflects the will of the people, which he tagged" one man, one vote"
One man, one vote was like a gospel propagated by Oshiomhole and accepted by Edolites and Nigerians who wanted a change from the status quo.
But ever since his party, the APC ceased the reign of power from the PDP both in his home State and Federal level, he seems to have gone mute concerning his one man, one vote gospel.
While addressing the mammoth crowd in his country home, Iyamho, Etsako West local government area on Saturday, unlike Oshiomhole, his speech was void of is usual gospel of "one man, one vote campaign", there was no mentioned of free, fair and credible election in his entire speech.
Here is the statements credited to him;
"We want to return to the government of the people by the people and for the people .
“ We have a common mission , to bring Edo back to the parts of sustainable development .
“ I am back and ready for Edo , my home state .
“ The snake that entered our family home , God has driven the snake out to where he belongs .
“ I have come home to join you and start the process of reclaiming the house back to the family of APC.
“ If the people say yes and God says yes, there is no man born of a woman that can say no.
“ So , now , I have only one mission and I know it is our common mission , to bring Edo back to the parts of sustainable development .
“We shall bring back the era of red roof . We want to bring back roads with drainage. We want to bring back those lovely days when we engage our youths and we mix- up with the elder”.
His speech was More or less of a war song, preparing Edolites for war.
Oshiomhole should not abandon his gospel of one man, one vote campaign otherwise, it will seems as if the APC is not sincere about giving Nigerians free and credible election and that his initial propagation of the one man, one vote campaign was just to draw public sympathy and dethroned the then ruling party, PDP.
