Former Edo state governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has described some faceless people who have been floating posters about his ambition to contest Senatorial election in 2019 as ‘mischief makers.’
A statement by his media aide, Victor Oshioke, said that Oshiomhole has no hand in the campaign material, even as he said: “the posters and the message it convey should be disregarded as the handiwork of mischief makers who have nothing better to do than engulf themselves in an obsessive pastime of speculation.”
He said that the said poster which created an impression that a “Committee of Friends” is campaigning for Comrade Oshiomhole to run for a senate seat in 2019, is not true.
“Curiously, the poster does not include information on the senatorial district for which he is being solicited to run. Our investigations have revealed that this poster did not emanate from any known friends of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole or anyone remotely connected to him.”
The statement said that since leaving office as governor, the former labour leader at no time discussed running for any other office with anyone.
“He is as surprised as anyone else about the emergence of these online posters.
“We therefore wish to inform the general public that Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and his known friends have nothing to do with the posters in circulation.” [myad]
