Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has come out to say that Adams Oshiomhole kneeling down to ask for forgiveness for supporting Governor Godwin Obaseki in 2016 is laughable.

Edo State Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Chris Nehikhare recently revealed that the display by Adams was only meant to hoodwink Edo electorates ahead of the state governorship election slated for September 19, 2020.

According to him, Oshiomhole’s plan will fail because Edo people are wiser now and his campaign of calumny against Ize-Iyamu in 2016 is still very recent.

He added that Edo people cannot trust the APC and Oshiomhole anymore since the latter had during the 2016 Edo governorship polls disparaged and publicly campaigned against the APC candidate (Ize-Iyamu).

His words, “Oshiomhole cannot now say he regretted supporting, Mr Godwin Obaseki during the 2016 election and canvassing support for the APC candidate

“He told the people in 2016 to reject him (Ize Iyamu) and he has suddenly become his favourite candidate for the September 19, 2020, Edo governorship election”.

“I have made my honest mistakes. Only God is perfect. I am now 68 years old. I have come to apologize for the mistake of supporting Obaseki in 2016. I am in Edo to repair my mistakes.”

“We also notice that the former chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomhole while apologising to Edo people, knelt down for forgiveness.

“We are amused and we find it ridiculous that a man who stood on a podium four years ago to condemn his candidate (Ize-Iyamu) for the September 19 governorship election in Edo state has resurfaced singing his praises.

“But the same man is telling us he made a mistake four years ago. Edo people should ask, can this man be trusted? Edo people should not take him seriously.

“In 2008, he talked about ending godfatherism but we all know it was a ruse; as his present-day actions do not suggest what he said then and shouldn’t be taken seriously.

“Edo people are wiser now, and we are determined to vote for someone that has performed. The Obaseki-led administration has made reforms in all sectors of Edo state.

“The judicial workers are satisfied; salaries and pensions are paid as and when due. These are what make a government.”
