‘Oshiomhole must go protest to resume Jan’


A former Speaker of Edo State House of Assembly, Mr Kabiru Adjotu, has disclose plans to lead a nationwide protest against the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.


Adjoto, Chieftain of the party who disclosed this in a Press release on Sunday in Benin City, Edo State Capital, said the protest that is billed to hold early next year.

“I’m championing a massive Oshiomhole Must Go protest which will kick off early next year with thousands of corroborators across the 36 States of the federation,’’ Adjoto, told party members at his country home at Ikakumo in Igarraland in Edo.

The protest will be unabated until Oshiomhole honourably resigns before he buries the APC,’’ said Adjoto, the immediate past speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly.

The APC Chieftain, who is currently the special adviser to Gov. Godwin Obaseki, said he would soon open “a can of worms” that would seal the political fate of the former Edo governor, who is currently battling his political survival in the ruling APC in the State.

“As I promised a few months ago, I’m vigorously set to open horrible can of worms that will make Edo people to stone Oshiomhole on the Street as we enter the New Year”.

Adjoto, however, did not disclose the ‘sins’ of Oshiomhole that would make the masses to rise against their former governor.

Adjoto also spoke on the speculation that Obaseki was planning to defect to the PDP, describing the speculation as baseless over the overbearing influence of the embattled National Chairman of the party.


“The governor will enjoy the ‘privilege of first refusal’ during the forthcoming APC governorship primaries as enjoyed by Oshiomhole in 2012,’’ he stated.

The former speaker noted that the APC national chairman was driving himself into “irredeemable political oblivion because of sheer greed and hypocrisy”.

He stressed that Oshiomhole had played god severally by hypocritically reversing himself on principles that fetched him enormous political fortunes.

“Oshiomhole became governor on the heels of fighting godfatherism and the tenets of one man, one vote.

“He has now turned himself into not just a godfather but an untamed emperor, who is fully out to ruin the gains of democracy. “He has also at different fora ridiculed the nation’s judiciary which gave him the ladder to climb to power,”.

Adjoto stated. At the event, the Woman Leader of the APC, Ward 7 in Akoko-Edo, Mrs Victoria Balogun, described Adjoto as a grassroots politician with a cult following.

She lauded Adjoto for making positive impacts on the lives of the people of his community, assuring the former speaker that women in Akoko-Edo would support the re-election of Obaseki.

Oshiomhole has being at loggerhead with Obaseki as the countdown to the governorship election in the state draws near.

Already, Edo State is scheduled for governorships polls in August next year, in an election expected to be characterised by back-stabbing, betrayals and possibly violence.

But, some Nigerians have started to express divergent views about the call for Oshiomhole’s sack.

Mr Macdonald Ighodaro, posted on Edorisiagbon Facebook page on Sunday to endorse the move, but, Mr Alari Edosa berated the Convener of the protest, Mr Kabiru Adjotu.

“Who is Adjoto? Adjoto fell out of support from his Akoko Edo People from the very day Comrade turned his back against him as evidenced by his spending less than 48 hours as Member, House of Reps.

“He has made history sha as the ever shortest serving legislator in the world!!!”, he said.

Also speaking, Mr Felix Osemwegie Esere said: “This one who led the worse Edo State House of Assembly is talking.

“The way he has been sent into politicam Oblivion because of his arrogance and pride, that’s the same thing that will happen to Obaseki”, he said.
