Ex-governor of Edo State and chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole has come out to say that Nigeria has moved past the era of do-or-die politics.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the Nigerian electoral process has clearly improved from what it used to be, and politics can no longer be a do or die affair in Nigeria.

Oshiomhole added that Buhari, unlike in the past, is committed to a free electoral process and has restated his resolve to do so on several occasions.

His words, “I don’t want to sit down here and defend who is sympathetic to who but the Senate should do their job and I am happy that it has both APC and PDP members who are active, vibrant, and knowledgeable. They know who is who and it is their business to scrutinise those who have been nominated.”

“But congratulate President Buhari for being able to tell the world that this election is not a do-or-die for him or his party. I am proud of that. You may not be proud of it because you are in history as having had a president who said because he is leaving, he must be succeeded by the PDP otherwise it is a do-or-die affair. We have moved past that.”

“I think even the worst critic of President Buhari will admit that he has not tried to misuse the Armed Forces or the police in order to have an electoral advantage for people running an election on his platform or even his own election.”

“At every stage, he has insisted he wants to leave a legacy of a free and fair election.”
