Oshiomhole dismisses rumours of presidential declaration


Former National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has reacted to social media reports regarding his interest in the presidency.

Speaking with newsmen, the former Edo state governor said whenever he makes up his mind to go for any office, he would speak directly to Nigerians.

Social media invites had been sent to some journalists and other stakeholders on Friday morning, asking them to attend Oshiomhole’s presidential declaration at the Federal Capital Territory FCT Council for Arts and Culture in Area 10, Abuja.

Major streets of Abuja were also dotted with presidential posters of the former labour leader.

Some of his supporters had thronged the venue only to be told that the event would no longer hold.

When contacted by The Press, Oshiomhole said “it must be a mistake”, adding, “I will not declare on the pages of Newspapers. If I will declare, it will be to people”.
