Former Edo state governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has confessed that he is behind the decision of his brother, Mr. Saidu Oshiomole to step down his ambition of seeking for Edo State House of Assembly ticket on APC platform.

The younger Oshiomhole who won the 2019 election for a seat in the Edo State House of Assembly for Etsako West 2 Constituency is among the 14 House of Assembly candidates who were denied inauguration due to intra politics conflict with the Edo state government.

Comrade Oshiomole made the statement in Benin while addressing APC Leaders in Benin.

The former Edo State governor who is the APC candidate for Edo North Senatorial district for the 2023 polls said that he never imposed any candidate on the party in his native Edo North during the just concluded primary of the party.

To compensate him and others victimize

According to the former APC National chairman, the only person he ever told to step down is his younger brother, Saidu who had the automatic ticket for Etsako West Constituency 2 ticket but had to compel him to quit because it will not be proper to have two brothers name on different ballots.

He said: “I have learned my lesson. All those people I supported before, how did it end up? I only told my younger brother to step down because Oshiomhole can not be going for senate and another Oshiomhole going for House of Assembly. Na only Oshiomhole dey? In Edo North, I never imposed anybody.”

At the meeting which witnessed the presence of former Deputy Governors Pius Odubu; Lucky Imasuen; former governorship aspirant, Gen. Charles Airhiavbere; Deputy Majority Leader Peter Akpatason among others, the state party chairman, Col. David Imuse disclosed that out of the 22 cases in court following the party primary, 12 of the litigants have agreed to withdraw their cases from court.
