Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said he has returned to Edo State to join the people to reclaim the state to APC.
Oshiomhole spoke to a crowd of All Progressives Congress, APC, supporters who received him on his arrival from Abuja at the weekend.
Oshiomhole lamented that Obaseki, who he nominated to succeed him in 2016, allegedly became a snake and started fighting party members by destroying their properties and arresting them unwarrantedly.
Oshiomhole said: “I am back and ready for the job. 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 to the family of APC.
“I have only one mission and I know it is our common mission, which is 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 with the elders. We want to return to the government of the people, by the people and for the people.”
The APC screening committee had disqualified Obaseki due to what it called defective certificate.
He later joined the PDP where he participated in the party’s primary election and emerged as the party’s candidate for the September 2020 governorship election.
