APC ‘ll win Imo, Ogun without Okorocha, Amosun – Oshiomhole

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC),  Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has said that the governors of Imo state,  Rochas Okorocha and his Ogun state counterpart Senator Ibikunle Amosun were “behaving like poor student of their own history, who had forgotten that they lost elections before winning on the platform of the APC.”

Oshiomhole who spoke while receiving APC women leaders from Edo state and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), also came hard at former President Olusegun Obasanjo, saying the former Nigerian leader was inviting the anger of God upon himself by supporting former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar for President.

Oshiomhole was however confident that the APC is stronger now in Imo and Ogun states, despite grievances of their governors as a result of the outcome of the party primaries where their preferred candidates lost out.

Oshiomhole said: “the real headline today is that we will win in Ogun state and we will deliver Hope Uzodinma in Imo state. Our popularity in Imo state today are increasing. Nigerians always make this mistake that once you are a governor, you have electoral value.

“We have overwhelming majority of APC governors who has electoral value, and we also have some few electoral liabilities.

Politics is about numbers.

“Those who think our political future is tied to them; they are poor students of their own political history. Some of these people talk as if they are invincible, they have forgotten that they have run elections in the past and lost until they abandoned their parties and joined us. So if they return back, history will repeat itself.”

He also asked former President Olusegun Obasanjo “to remember he once swore that God should punish him if he ever supports his former vice to become the president.”

He added: “We know there are people across the divide who are fighting back. There is a gang up by those who are used to sucking the system without adding any value but Nigerians, and will not allow that.”

He expressed confidence that the 2019 election, would be a smooth sail for President Muhammadu Buhari and APC, because ethnic and religious sentiments that characterised the 2015 election lost by former president Goodluck Jonathan would have no play this time around.
