Former National Chairman of All Progressive Party and Former Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomole, has said that he’s regretting bringing Governor Godwin Obaseki as his successor in 2016 as the state’s governor.
He said with his defection and that of his deputy to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, “the bad heads in our party are gone.”
Oshiomhole stated this when he addressed a crowd of party supporters and faithful who thronged his residence yesterday evening after a similar scenario when he came home from Benin City on Saturday night adding that those that were bent on destroying the APC in the state have been “smoked out.”
He said Obaseki, used every obnoxious means, including the destruction of properties and unwarranted arrest of members, to destroy the party in the state saying “The Governor was demolishing the houses of our members while some were being jailed for trump up charges; these are the people who fought for him to become governor.
“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.
“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 problem, we will all have been homeless by now.”
He said his immediate task now is to ensure 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.
