Did he liberate Edo State from Tony Anenih’s grip in his quest for energy to grow to be the new godfather? Adams Oshiomhole began smartly in politics and did smartly in his first time period. In appreciation of this truth, we got here all out to toughen his reelection with all the resources at our disposal. In his second term, rather than focal point his power on creating the State and her individuals, the Comrade Governor derailed and went with sing his own praises, propaganda thereby betraying people who stood with him for excellent governance, in his selfish desire to remain the only shining big name, the one saint and godfather in Edo State.
“Oshiomhole’s fashion of politics is repulsive. Oshiomhole has ‘destroyed’ so many Edo individuals in his quest to grab power in Edo State. He did related with the NLC. He made himself the one voice within the union, brought about disorganization to verify the union was in his keep watch over after he left. he’s ready to execute comparable agenda in Edo State.
