See and judge for yourself if the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has any iota of integrity left in him and if he could still be taken seriously.
Four years ago, he called Osagie Ize-Iyamu all sorts of names, as he heaped praises on Mr. Godwin Obaseki, who he wanted to succeed him then as governor of Edo State.
Because, Obaseki allegedly rebuffed his attempt to become the ‘Jagaban’ of Edo, both men fell apart. And the APC chairman is now praising Iyamu, routing for him to unseat Obaseki.
And this is the chairman of the ruling party. One of the people formulating policies for the country.

In September, 2016, during the 84th Birthday celebration of former governor, Samuel Ogbemudia, Oshiomhole even accused Ize-Iyamu of planning to take Edo back to the ‘Igbinedion Era’.
He said, “The people have a clear choice to make. You want Igbinedion era back because Ize-Iyamu has been straight forward on it that they want to change this change to the Igbinedion era. Lucky has confirmed that one of their own would be used to reverse the clock back.”
He added, “Edo cannot return to the house of the Igbinedions… They want to use tax payers’ money to celebrate a man who has never served Edo State. ”
Then he urged Edo people to vote for the APC candidate, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, in order to move the state forward.
“Edo people have seen the light. They cannot go back to the dark era which the Igbinedion house represents. They will consolidate the present gain and raise it to a higher level by voting for Godwin Obaski, who is not and will never be part of the Igbinedions,” he said.
Mr. Ize-Iyamu is now a member of the APC and the consensus governorship candidate of the faction loyal to Oshiomhole.
