Comrade Adams Oshiomhole of the All Progressive Congress (APC). The immediate politician who left the position of the national chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) before Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State took over from him is now sixty-nine years of age. It is important for someone to celebrate his achievements alongside with his age. If someone's success want to be measured, it should not be by the achievements alone but by the age difference between the achievements and the age.
The former Edo State Governor is one of those politicians in Nigeria that would be forever remembered in the history of the country as a lot of challenges have come on his way that he has dealt with maturely unlike other politicians. Even in the middle of strong challenges, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole stood firmly in his believes and on his words. Once again, Adams Oshiomhole is really good to be celebrated and congratulated on his achievements as he clocks a year together.
There are two vital things that I want to pass out to the former National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) on his birthday in this article. From all his past encounters with various people and politicians with different ambitions, Adams Oshiomhole must have known where to work on as he must have noticed his errors and omissions. Even without reminding him, Adams Oshiomhole knows how his flaws came to him. Nevertheless, he would be reminded in this article some things he might have forgotten.
Buhari, Oshiomhole and Tinubu laughing
Comrade Adams Oshiomhole should learn that know person should be ridiculed no matter the age or status of that person in the person in the society. In some months ago, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole fought bitterly with his trained political apprentice and lost miraculously. He was not only defeated, he was sent into a political exile and the former Governor of Edo State lost his relevances in politics till now. If Oshiomhole had thought about it and exercised patient then, he would have been saved from this.
Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State and Oshiomhole used to be friends in the olden days but a rift between the two impregnable politicians erupted and Oshiomhole thought he could use his influences to stop Obaseki from becoming the Governor of Edo State in the year twenty twenty. Although Obaseki was disqualified but he defected into the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) where he was able to secure the ticket as the flag bearer of the party. Oshiomhole contested against Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu alongside Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and won.
He didn't only lose the election but also his social status as the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC). His National Working Committee (NWC) was disollved and he left the position unceremoniously. Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is now like a normal average politician in the party. He doesn't involve himself in crusial decision making processes and he has not been involved by the others as well.
Apart from that, Adams Oshiomhole should know that there is no permanent enemy and friends in politics. He was a close friend of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu then when he was pushed to the position of National Chairman of the party. Chief John Odige-Oyegun should be the one on the chair as the chairman. Oshiomhole lost the seat and Asiwaju distances himself from him, he should look forward to meeting Chief John Odige-Oyegun and Obaseki maybe he could find favours in their faces.
Adams Oshiomhole should take note of these information on his 69th birthday. Once again, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole should be celebrated as a clocks 69 years old today. He is not too old to make decisions, happy birthday to him.
