Embattled All Progressives Congress Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has come out to say that he is fighting against those who cannot win the councillorship even if their lives depended on it and those who have interest in the 2023 elections.
It can be remembered that an interlocutory injunction had earlier been issued by an Abuja High Court, restraining him from functioning as national chairman of the APC.
He said, “there are other forces who see me for whatever reason as a threat to them. Those leading this anti-Oshiomhole campaign are weak politicians who cannot boast of winning a councillorship let alone lay a claim to leadership position in our party. They are the ones who will plot how do we get rid of him because they want to be president in 2023 even when their hold on their state at the moment is doubtful If they were to go for referendum in terms of their approval rating.”
Oshiomhole stated this at the State House after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
“How the court can hold vote of confidence and twist it to mean vote of no confidence, only that judge can explain it to himself. But the good news is that this is not a final court or is it the only court, incidentally it is just the court that didn’t have the jurisdiction even to listen to this matter. And our lawyers so pointed it out but the judge was determined to oblige those who want to distabilise the All Progressives Congress”
Oshiomhole added: “Those behind this plot, the hands you saw which include as you saw yesterday, the Edo State governor and his people jubilating, but that is the irony of life that you will help give birth to a child and the child look for cutlass to want to chop off your neck. It has happened in history, it has happened in this country so I won’t be the only person.“
