The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress and immediate past governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has likened the self inflicted political situation of Governor Godwin Obaseki to that of a buzzing mosquito around the ear. He revealed this while on a condolence visit to his deputy Pius Odubu, the former deputy governor of Edo state.
He said “the test of leadership is when a mosquito is blowing your ear, if you keep quiet nobody will hear and if you shout mosquito, mosquito everybody will hear…may we not be provoked by it” an apparent reference to the current Edo political situation and in particular Godwin Obaseki who has been running from pillar to post for his failed second term bid. This is very instructive as the governor has resorted to media propaganda, noise making and organising fake rally in order to hoodwink the good people of Edo.
Comrade Adams Oshiomhole who spoke in the midst of the Enigies and traditional rulers said Edo State remains one and must continue to forge ahead with development. He singled out the revered Oba of Benin as a true leader.
In an apparent reference to Edo PDP and their romance with Governor Obaseki, Oshiomhole in his usual dynamic and pragmatic approach joked and danced chanting “beat them well, well, PDP too stubborn. Beat them well well.” The message that can be deciphered from this is that if Obaseki and his new found PDP friends like, they can form an alliance but APC will beat them well, well come 2020 Edo gubernatorial election.
It must be said that Oshiomhole enjoys massive support among all and sundry. The Enogies joined him in the chorus with Rt Hon Pius Odubu taking to the floor, dancing and thanking Oshiomhole for his leadership. Comrade Adams Oshiomhole remains the indefatigable leader of APC both at the state and national level. A buzzing mosquito like Obaseki cannot distract Oshiomhole.
