The past National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and ex-governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, declared on Saturday night that he is poised to return Edo State to his party, APC.
He made this known while addressing a crowd in his country home at Iyamho, near Auchi in Etsako West Local Government Area.
He told the crowd: ‘I am back and ready for the job’, in an apparent reference to the September 19 governorship election in the state.
Oshiomhole stated that when he became the governor of the state, he had just left his position as head of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC).
‘Now the snake that entered our family home, God has driven the snake to where he belongs.
‘I have come home to join you and start the process of reclaiming the house back to the family of APC.
‘And if the people say “Yes” and God says “Yes” there is no man born of a woman that can say “No”.
‘So, now I have only one mission, and I know it is our common mission, to bring Edo back to the path of sustainable development.
‘We shall bring back the era of red roof; we want to bring back roads with drainage; we want to bring back those lofty days when we engaged our youths, and we mixed up with the elders.
‘We want to return to the government of the people by the people and for the people,’ the former governor said to the cheering crowd.
