Obaseki sacks Oshiomhole as APC chairman, retires him from politics, makes Tinubu irrelevant – Saraki

The former President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, on Sunday congratulated incumbent Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on his victory in the governorship election in the state. Saraki celebrated that Governor Obaseki sacked Adams Oshiomhole as national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and subsequently retired him from politics after the Edo State governorship election. Saraki also celebrated that Obaseki made the APC national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, politically irrelevant.

Saraki added that Ondo State is the next target.

Saraki on his social media page declared:

“Obaseki removed Adams Oshiomhole as APC chairman.

“Obaseki has retired Adams Oshiomhole politically.

“Obaseki made Tinubu politically irrelevant.

“Obaseki is the Jagaban of Edo politics.

“Congratulations Governor Godwin Obaseki.

“Ondo is loading.

“Saraki is coming.”


  1. There is a saying in our place that a soldier ant cannot wear the trousers of a giant but it can remove it. Oshiomole made the costliest mistake of his life by plotting Obaseki’s disqualification at the primaries. A vendetta mission that kept backfiring.

  2. Why the primary in the first place? He was governor for 4 years, automatically he should represent APC for another 4 years till when his tenure will be over; then a primary to replace him and represent the party. I guess obaseki didn’t agree to share edo treasure money with oshomole hence the then chairman tried to remove him from position by conspiracy.Thank god, it all back fire on all conspirators.
