Edo 2020: 'Supporting Obaseki in 2016 is My Biggest Mistake' Oshiomhole
Adam Oshiomhole, former Edo State governor and the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said that his biggest mistake in politics was supporting Godwin Obaseki in the 2016 governorship election.
Oshiomhole said this while addressing members of the APC in the Edo capital yesterday that he supported the governorship aspiration of Obaseki in 2016 to ensure the continuity of his projects and programmes.
He said he is remorseful over the mistake he made supporting Obaseki in 2016 and that he has come to repair the mistake by supporting Ize-Iyamu in the forthcoming election in the state.
Oshiomhole also said that God had a reason for what happened to Ize-Iyamu in 2016 and leaving the National Chairman of APC is also God’s doing which is to give him enough time to correct his errors.
The former governor urged the governorship candidate of the APC in Edo to keep to his promises.
He expressed optimistic that he (Ize-Iyamu) would emerge victorious on September 19 governorship election in the state.
Ize-Iyamu, while earlier speaking, stated that Edo governor had not done well in almost four years and had lost focus, while urging people of the state to massively vote for him on September 19.
Recall that the incumbent governor who has since defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to actualise his second term ambition after losing out in the APC ticket, will square up with Ize-Iyamu for the governorship poll on September 19.
It would be also recalled that Ize-Iyamu who also in December, defected to the APC was the PDP flag bearer in 2016.
