Comrade Adams Oshiomhole talking at a press conference on saturday, June 27, attacked his political rival and former Senate President Dr. Bukola Saraki.
Oshiomhole said one of the highlights of his reign as national Chairman of the all progressives Congress (APC) was the victory of kwara state for the ruling party. Oshiomhole, a former Governor of Edo state, is the immediate former Chairman of the APC.
Although his rule was suspended, it ended abruptly after the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) dismissed his supporters from the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).
At a press conference on Saturday in Abuja, Oshiomhole said that his greatest moment of happiness in office is the actual displacement of the Saraki political dynasty in Kwara.
His word: “I think it’s convenient for people to point out a few areas where we had problems, a few States that we lost, but there were also States that we won.
“For example, no matter what anyone wants to say, I am still proud that we were able to restore the state of Quara. This was extremely important to us for reasons that I will not list.
“I am happy that we have restored Gombe state. These are very strategic States. There are a couple of other things I could talk about, but today is not the day to talk. “As for regrets, no. There is no regret at all. This is life. You can’t have it both ways. I assure you, I have no regrets.”
Before the APC took over Kwara’s Affairs, Saraki, a doctor-turned-politician, was the godfather of state politics.
As a member of the APC, Saraki became President of the Senate in the 8th National Assembly in 2015 against the approval of the ruling party.
After taking office in June 2018, Oshiomhole began a long struggle with Saraki and his supporters in the APC, culminating in the 2019 General election.
Failing to do so, Oshiomhole openly mocked Saraki and his supporters, saying they were no longer involved in Nigerian politics.
Immediately after Oshiomhole’s ouster as APC Chairman, Saraki fired back, saying the former Edo state Governor was facing his “moment of truth.”
He went on to declare that “he is about to meet his Waterloo,” a prediction that has now come true.
“he continued to use his mouth to divide his party, and I believe there is a lesson for all politicians to learn from the fate of the ousted APC Chairman, ” Saraki said.
