OpenLife Nigeria reports that following the high praise Peter Obi, presidential candidate of Labour Party received from the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, on account of his stainless pedigree and unassailable knowledge of what would rebirth Nigeria from 2023, Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole, 70, former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has activated his supports campaigns for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of APC.
During Peter Obi’s visit to the Palace of the Oba of Benin alongside his running mate, Yusuf Datti, the Benin monarch questioned Obi on his integrity, inquiring him of a parcel of land donated to him reputations preceded him. Obi answered to the admiration of the audience.
The monarch further said that there have been a lot of arguments about his popularity. He said some said he is only popular on the social media while some said otherwise adding that he has tried to find out from both the old and the young and that what he has seen is quite amazing.
The monarch maintained that the Benin throne, right from the time immemorial, has remained apolitical as he is the father to all, blesses and advises all who seek for political position and the other. He said the throne is interested in the one who has the interest of Nigerians at heart, one who can make life meaningful for all.
In what seems a response, given that it was he, Oshiomhole, who stated that Obi’s supporters are just few boys in a room tweeting, he went all out to drum up supports for his candidate, sweating. He has Tinubu’s inscription conspicuously written of his activist apparel.
Over time, the former Edo State governor urged members of the party to begin mobilisation for next year’s election, noting that staying united was the only way its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, and others can win next year’s election.
Oshiomhole, the APC Senatorial candidate in Edo North, said that party leaders in the local government have an important role to play in the forthcoming elections, appealing to them to go to their various local governments, hold meeting and sell their candidates to electorates at the grass root.
He also called on aggrieved members to take a cue from him when he was ousted as the chairman of the party after serving for two years.
He said, “The primaries are over and the candidates have emerged. We need to put away our differences that came at the primaries and queue behind our candidates, beginning from our presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, for two-time Governor of Lagos and the party’s national leader.
“The aggrieved members should learn from my act of political tolerance when I was ousted from office as the national chairman of the party. I had the opportunity to seek redress, which would have stalled the party’s congress, but I didn’t.
