- The chief press secretary to Oshiomhole says the APC chairman believes in democracy and rule of law
- According to Ebegbulem, Oshiomhole is always attacked because he has the strategy of killing the career of political godfathers
- Ebegbelum noted that the APC national chairman ended godfatherism in Edo and today Edo is free
Comrade Simon Ebegbulem, the chief press secretary to the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has claimed that his boss believes in democracy and rule of law.
The CPS who disclosed this in an interview with Vanguard newspapers also claimed that Oshiomhole introduced one man one vote while he was governor of Edo state.
Going further, he added that Oshiomhole believes that candidates must earn their votes democratically and not through rigging.
"The APC victories so far, starting from the presidential election, the sacking of the PDP and the Bukola Saraki political dynasty in Kwara state and the dominance of the APC in the National Assembly are glaring evidence in the elections.
"When Comrade Oshiomhole got this job, many of us who know him very well, know he is the right man for the job and that he will deliver," he said.
Ebegbulem described Oshiomhole as a dogged fighter who believes in democracy, the rule of law and that candidates must earn their votes democratically and not through rigging.
According to him, the APC national chairman introduced one man one vote while he was governor of Edo state.
"With the victories we got in most of the states, you could see that the APC NWC got it right especially in areas where we conducted direct primaries. And looking at the results of the elections, you could see political godfathers in the PDP falling by the wayside. When the comrade chairman was insisting that Saraki will be impeached, people thought the impeachment was only going to be at the floor of the Senate.
"You can see he has been impeached finally by the people of Kwara through the ballot. Oshiomhole has the strategy of killing the career of political godfathers and that is why there are attacks against him some times," he added.
Ebegbulem said Oshiomhole is one of the political leaders he knows who hates godfatherism in politics.
"He actually ended it in Edo and today Edo is free. He believes that people and not leaders must lead. And that is why in every election, Oshiomhole campaigns vigorously just like he did in the presidential election.
"While the PDP was busy strategizing on how to rig, Oshiomhole and President Muhammadu Buhari, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu was busy canvassing for votes from Nigerians. So we are very glad that, with the victory, the PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, came second as his name suggests, while Comrade Oshiomhole took first as his name connotes," he said.
