Sacked As APC Chairman, ‘dethroned’ In Edo — What Next For Oshiomhole? by GreenAgain: 6:08pm On Sep 20
In just three months, the political career of Adams Oshiomhole has suffered a huge setback. Some political experts believe his career might have been reduced to rubble by no other person than the former Edo state governor himself.

Not so long after the court of appeal affirmed his sack as the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), he has been dislodged in Edo where he governed from 2008 to 2016.

The tussle with Godwin Obaseki whom he helped into power is one of his greatest undoing as he has not just lost political relevance in his stronghold but suffered a heavy blow. After he fell out with Obaseki, the APC executive committee in his ward in Etsako west local government suspended him. The APC chairmen in the 18 local government areas of the state also passed a vote of no confidence on him, accusing him of working against the party interest.

Although Oshiomhole appeared to have dismissed the suspension as a child’s play, it would later cost him his position as the national chairman of the party as a high court in Abuja suspended him on that basis.

Danlami Senchi, a judge, had ruled in March that it was wrong of the APC to have kept Oshiomhole as chairman after he was suspended by his state chapter of the party. The final attempt to get him back into the party’s hierarchy failed in June after the appellate court ruled there was no justifiable basis for an appeal against the court ruling suspending him.

In the heat of the crisis, the national working committee of the APC was dissolved and his loyalists lost control of the party.

While it appeared as if Obaseki was losing grounds ahead of the governorship election, considering how popular the APC had been in the state, Oshiomhole relocated to Benin where he became the face of the APC governorship campaign, with Osagie Ize-Iyamu as a spectator in his own game.

His authority as a two-term governor and a former national chairman was not in doubt. Some people had, in fact, likened him to the “almighty” Bola Tinubu who has remained powerful in Lagos despite leaving office as governor in 2007.

To all the ears that cared to listen, Oshiomhole boasted of how the APC will defeat Obaseki in the election and even apologised for “selling him” to Edo people as the best fit for governor in 2016.

But Obaseki who wanted to beat the master in his own game appealed to the people as the “Edo No be Lagos” mantra resonated among the electorate.

In the closing days of his campaign, Obaseki boasted to his supporters in Oredo local government which eventually gave him 43,498 votes, the highest in the election, that having dealt with Oshiomhole at the national level of APC, the next target was to bury him politically.

“This election is a contest with Oshiomhole. We have dealt with him at the national level, we will bury him politically in this election,” he had said.

Well, the elections are now over and it has become clear that the voters trounced godfatherism. So, what’s next for Oshiomhole? Reconcile with Obaseki to regain relevance in the state’s political stage, like the average Nigerian politician, or return to the labour union as the comrade he used to be?

Oshiomhole is now a political leper. This is just the begining of his travail as APC leaders will surely blame him for the loss of Edo state to PDP. He is also not in the good book of the cabal in the presidency. This is a vital lesson for all those that are toxicated with power and pride.

Oshiomhole arrogantly climbed a tree pass it's leaves.

Here is a man that should have allowed obaseki jejely have peace.

He would still have been national chairman and keep his bloated status in Edo.

Even if obaseki didn't give him any penny, it was till a win win for him.


Now he has been stripped nake:d

He should remain in his country home at Iyamho and be playing local godfather politics.

The transport unions and market associations can make use of his wealth of experience.

He had his shots! Every politics is local. He'll go back to the drawing board, ammend his mistakes, bring his loyal footsoldiers together and he'll surely bounce back stronger. I wish you well in your next steps, Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole.

Please nobody should disrespect our comrade ex-governor. Edo people still love him despite the fact that he tried to play god and his party APC abandoned him both locally and nationally. He his still our son and we still love him for the great job he did in Edo state during his time. #Edo no be Lagos.

Oshomole has lost everything in life as a result of greed. He should just go back to the village and be a bush meat hunter. No party can welcome Oshomole because he is a very bad influence as any party that welcomes him, that party is destroyed.

Back to his former Obioma job because even Bola Tinubu should have known now that associating with Adams Oshiomole will make more enemies & bring more bad luck for him.
