Oshiomhole repeatedly boasts he wants to be the Tinubu of Edo – Ikimi

Ex-Foreign Affairs Minister and Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, High Chief Tom Ikimi, said that Gov. Adams Oshiomhole repeatedly boasted that he wants to be to Edo State’s politics what the National leader of APC, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu is to Lagos politics.

Ikimi’s media aide Segun Awosanya stated this on Wednesday in a statement he released to react to special adviser to Gov. Oshiomhole on Political Matters, Chief Charles Idahosa’ s comments on his principal.

Idahosa had accused the Edo-born High Chief of fighting Gov. Oshiomhole because the governor did not back his aspiration to become the national chairman of APC.

He also described Ikimi’s statement that the PDP would defeat APC in the forthcoming governorship election in the state as entertaining.

Hitting back at his critics, Ikimi said, “My attention has been drawn to the drunken reaction of a certain Charles Idahosa, who is the officially paid amoral griot of the ailing Adams Oshiomhole administration in Edo State, to the credible statement made by the elder statesman High Chief Tom Ikimi, HCTI during the flag off of the PDP Campaign for the forthcoming governorship election.

“To start with there’s no personal frustration on the part of the elder statesman outside the outright neglect of the affairs of the state under the self aggrandizing administration working passionately to destroy Edo state beyond recognition. Why I left APC “On the doltish allusion of “belly aching” because HCTI was not made National Chairman of APC…The fact remains that the elder statesman honorably left Edo State after the 2012 election that brought Oshiomhole in for his second term. That was after as the proverbial Camel had seized the party and enthroned himself as the sole God Father.

“High Chief Tom Ikimi took the high road, went to Abuja and embarked on the Party merger project which Oshiomhole never believed could work. He was surprised and amazed at the success of the merger project and the creation of APC.

“He proceeded on a string of serial betrayal of HCTI. For the National Chairmanship he never supported HCTI and not even Oyegun. He betrayed Edo State as he wanted to remain the only political figure in Edo. He has been boasting privately that he wants to be the Tinubu of Edo State.”
