2023: Pressure Mounts On Oshiomhole To Contest

A Chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), and former Executive Director, Oil and Gas in Edo state, Vitalis Eshokene, has called on the former governor of Edo state and former National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to succumb to the mounting pressure on him to vie for the Edo North Senatorial seat come 2023 General elections.

Eshokene who made the call while addressing journalists in Benin on Thursday also revealed that party faithful and loyalists of the former governor would mobilise to purchase the nomination form for Oshiomhole to demonstrate their resolve to have him contest the Edo North Senatorial seat.

Recall that there have been strong indication that the former Governor may be aiming to go to the Senate which is currently being occupied by Senator Francis Alimekena who is said to be seeking third term ticket.

But Eshokene told newsmen that “Edo state and the Senatorial district need a strong representation more than what we are getting now. Edo state has not got the right kind of representation and Edo North has been the worst hit in this.

“Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has demonstrated what he can do as a labour leader, as governor of the state and as national chairman of the party. Our people in Edo north need adequate representation more than we are getting and Comrade Oshiomhole fits the kind of person Edo North needs in the Senate from 2023.”

He appealed to Oshiomhole to listen to the voice of the people of the senatorial district and make himself available to contest the Senate seat.
