Am not in the race to become godfather in Edo politics__Oshiomole

The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Federal level, Adams Oshiomhole has denied accusations of making himself as the new godfather of Edo politics.
The APC chairman made the rejection on Sunday while responding to questions from State House correspondents after marching some APC members to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The APC National Chairman challenged his accusers to come up with proofs when speaking on the latest crisis ruminating the party.

He said, “Where is the evidence? It’s all about accusation. They have to give you the particulars of that godfatherism. What’s the evidence? I am a catalyst. That I accept the credit, not only that, I fight godfatherism.

Adams oshiomhole added that he did not only paralyze the idea of godfatherism in Edo politics but also made into existence, the one man one vote campaign to fight against election malpractice anywhere in the nation.
“I won all the 18 local government areas and I won 95 percent of the total votes cast in my second term election under Anenih alive and at it's best. He said.

“So, Edo people know me and I know them. I don’t need an immediate route to reinvigorate my position in the system. But you know that there is nobody in Nigeria who is not open to allegations. The sacrosanct thing is that he who accuses should give you evidence.“ he boasted.

Oshiomole, who is the former Edo State governor also condemned the use of few members of the State House of Assembly to elect speaker and other principal posts of the House, without the knowledge of majority of the members.
“parliament are done transparently; they are not secret cult or organization. Now you have 24 member House, 19 members protested. Oshiomhole said.
