The former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, has stated that he returned to Edo State to reclaim the State for the APC.
He declared that if Edo residents say yes, and God says yes, no man born of a woman can say no to the APC, which became the opposition party in the State, after Governor Godwin Obaseki defected to the now ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, recently.
Oshiomhole spoke at his Iyamho hometown near Auchi, in Etsako West Local Government Area of the State. He was addressing teeming supporters, who welcomed him from Abuja, in his residence.
The enthusiastic crowd waited for Oshiomhole for many hours at the main gate of Auchi Polytechnic, before moving to Iyamho, for the special address by the APC Leader.
His words: “I am back and ready for the job. The snake that entered our family home, God has driven the snake to where he belongs. I have come home to join you and start the process of reclaiming the house to the family of APC.
“I have only one mission, and I know it is our common mission, which is to bring Edo back to the path of sustainable development.
“We shall bring back the era of red roof. We want to bring back roads with drainage. We want to bring back those lofty days, when we engaged our youths and we mixed with the elders.
“We want to return to the government of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
