Adams Oshiomhole, former National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in his Iyamho residence, Etsako West Local Government Area reveals he regretted bringing Governor Godwin Obaseki as his successor in 2016.
Oshiomhole made this know when he addressed a crowd of party supporters who thronged his home yesterday evening after he came home from Benin City on Saturday night adding that those that were bent on soiling APC in the state have been “smoked out.” He said;
“I begged those who were being persecuted to take it easy, that they shouldn’t burn the house we all laboured to build because we want to smoke out the snake and now, the snake has been smoked out of the house.
“A few weeks earlier, the snake said APC was his house and that he was not leaving, but less than 72 hours after saying this, he left. If we had burnt the house because the snake was giving us a problem, we will all have been homeless by now.”
He said his immediate task now is to ensure the victory of the party come September 19. “I have come home for only one project, I am not going back to Abuja until the project is completed.
“I came back home not to rest, but to work. We are political lions, we must commit ourselves to returning Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu to Osadebe Avenue.”He said the people should judge the present government with what they see and not what they hear.
According to him, “there have been no tangible development since we left government, all they have to show for almost four years are MOUs and ear mark projects while we had eye marks projects.
“This was how they brought the respected Vice President to Benin to groundbreaking for an industrial park that we will never see. Same also goes to that of Gelegele Port.”
