Kabiru Adjoto, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has vowed to stage a massive Adams Oshiomhole must go nationwide protest early in the New Year.
There have been calls by some members of the party for Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the APC to resign.
“I’m championing a massive Oshiomhole Must Go protest which will kick off early next year with thousands of corroborators across the 36 states of the federation,” Adjoto told party members at his country home at Ikakumo in Igarraland in Edo.
“The protest will be unabated until Oshiomhole honourably resigns before he buries the APC,” said Adjoto, the immediate past speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly.”
The APC chieftain, who is currently the special adviser to Governor Godwin Obaseki, said he would soon open “a can of worms that would seal the political fate of Oshiomhole”.
According to him, the can of worms will make Edo people throw stones at the former state governor, who is currently battling for his political survival in the ruling APC in Edo.
Adjoto, however, did not disclose what Oshiomhole did wrong that will make the people of the state rise up against the former governor.
Oshiomhole has been locked in a tense political battle with Obaseki, the incumbent governor, as the countdown to the governorship election in the state draws near.
Another governorship election is due to take place in the state next year August, with many already predicting that it will be characterised by back-stabbing, betrayals and violence.
Adjoto also spoke on the speculation that Obaseki was planning to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), describing the speculation as baseless.
The former speaker noted that the APC national chairman was driving himself into “irredeemable political oblivion because of sheer greed and hypocrisy”.
He stressed that Oshiomhole had played god severally by hypocritically reversing himself on principles that gave him enormous political fortunes.
“Oshiomhole became governor on the heels of fighting godfatherism and the tenets of one man, one vote.
“He has now turned himself into not just a godfather but an untamed emperor, who is fully out to ruin the gains of democracy.
