Edo Government Insists Oshiomhole In APC presidential Race Despite Governor’s Silence

The government of Edo State has insisted that Governor Adams Oshiomhole is still in the race for the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential ticket.

Commissioner for information and orientation in the state, Mr Louis Odion yesterday said that his boss “is in the race to rescue Nigeria”.

Odion, who spoke in Benin, Edo State capital said that Oshiomhole was better equipped to lead the nation with his pan-Nigeria perspective, asserting that he had better credentials than other APC presidential aspirants to pick the party’s ticket.

His words: “It is not a rumour, it is a fact, Oshiomhole is in the race. But if you expect the kind of jamboree that is currently taking place, where people embark on road show, promising heaven and earth, Oshiomole is not going to do that.

“I can tell you he is in the race. And it is in response to the yearnings of well-meaning Nigerians that our country need somebody of his pedigree at this point in our history to move Nigeria forward.

“You will even recall early this year when Governor Fashola said the nation needs somebody like Oshiomhole as president to change Nigeria.
