We are going to war next year so we need a warrior like Oshiomhole to lead the attack-Ojezua


BENIN CITY-IT was jubilation at the state secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State yesterday, following the endorsement of the immediate past governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole by President Muhammadu Buhari as the National Chairman of the party.

Party leaders from different parts of the state took over the secretariat dancing and drinking in jubilation. President Muhammadu Buhari had urged governors of the party to support Oshiomhole for the National Chairmanship position last Tuesday.

The state chairman of the party, Mr Anslem Ojezua, who spoke to Vanguard, said ¨ we are celebrating because we are happy our President has done the right thing. We are going to war next year and we need a warrior in the form of Oshiomhole to lead the war¨.

Also, former House of Representatives member, Mr Patrick Obahiagbon (aka Igodomigodo) described Oshiomhole as the ¨ best man for this job because he has been tested and trusted in Edo state and as former President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC)¨.

Another chieftain of the party in Edo state, Dr David Imuse, said ¨APC is lucky to have a personality like Comrade Oshiomhole and I urge all well meaning APC leaders who love President Buhari to support him¨.

A joyous chairman of APC in Edo State, Mr Ojezua, declared that ¨as a party we are very happy here. I think what the President did is more or less a ratification of the endorsement we have done in Edo and the South South. It is a step in the right direction. After this, we will have a very orderly and peaceful National Convention where Oshiomhole will be crowned.

¨Comrade is bringing in energy, competence, efficiency and experience. Above all he is bringing in his fighting spirit that is required in this next election. Next year, we are going into a war and we need a warrior for this next election. And comrade is a warrior, we need a war commander to lead the war¨ he stated.
