Those who keep their heads down and their memory alert, would still recall that on May 18th , this year when it was rumoured that Oshiomhole would be appointed the chairman of APC, I raised very high a banner of warning and advice to the leadership of APC.

Those who keep their heads down and their memory alert, would still recall that on May 18th , this year when it was rumoured that Oshiomhole would be appointed the chairman of APC, I raised very high a banner of warning and advice to the leadership of APC.


In that article, after characterizng the true and inner personality of a man called Adams Oshiomhole, I opined that for him to be the chairman of APC was a DISASTER IN THE WAITING. Without giving myself credit, my readers and members of the public should give me thumbs up. It was not a prophecy, it was stating the obvious based on my intellectual knowledge on Adams Oshiomhole.
Just few months in APC, as its chairman, he has built an edifice and a process of the collapse of that party. Indeed woe will be unto him. Infact, history will be unkind for him. Certainly he will leave a perpetual legacy of the most disliked and discarded politician in this country.
In the first place, Anybody in APC, no matter how highly placed who conjectured either in dream or real life to recommend Oshiomhole to be chairman of APC must bury his/her face in face in shame because playing to the gallery.
Many believed that his sugar coated tongue and his ability to use sloganing phrases and terminologies Ibikunle must have made him to impress some leaders in APC to make him Chairman. Little did he know that he is not qualified to be a leader.
Many in this country, who knows his accidents, know him as one who fishes in troubled water. Labour leadership which is just like leading a mob is not synonymous with party chairmanship. Admittedly, as one exposed to labour movement trainings, he has perfected in dishing out mob related phrases. People can recall that it was during his time as a Labour Leader that he ran into trouble with Obasanjo as the President of the country resulting to breakup of Nigerian Labour Congress into two factions.
Another thing he does well is Pretence. He his very pretentious, claiming that he his fighting for the common man. Rubbish! He is not a Socialist but a hidden Capitalist coated with a Socialist's cloth. How could the so-called pretentious socialist have this type of massive building in his hometown believed to have being erected by 3 emperors? A Socialist our foot.
 Unfortunately, in this country, we are too credulous. In short, at an appropriate time, Adams Oshiomhole will have a day in court in this country.
There is no doubt that through his conspiracy propensity, deceiving people like the President, Tinubu and Govt. El Rufai, he was able to be appointed chairman of APC. Little did he know that he was setting up himself for National disgrace and global caricature by honest global Labour leaders.
Nobody but nobody, since the emergence of democratic politics in this country, has attracted such a level of wide spread criticism and condemnation than Adams Oshiomhole. Of course, there is one Igbo proverb which says “one who does not know what it takes a man to win a girlfriend will recommend that she should be told harsh words so that she can go''. Oshiomhole is a liar by saying that he is a foundation member of APC. Because he doesn't know what it took people like Buhari, Tinubu and Ogbonnaya Onu to form APC. That is why he did not care about his actions when he did what he did to APC through his belligerent utterances and behaviour to alienate many APC leaders. Certainly, on one to one basis, he may think that he his smarter than Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, Amosun Ibikunle of Ogun State and Abdul Aziz Yari Abubakar of Zamfara state. He may be ephemerally smarter on the surface, but these govenors are more intelligent and wiser than him. Because many alleged that they have several evidence to nail him permanently for a long prison sentence.
Another evidence of Oshiomhole's rascality and disrespect for elders was him cursing Olusegun Obasanjo, the former president of Nigeria, saying that “God will punish him.” Oh my God! Is this man born of a woman to curse this man of this international status? No wonder many believe that it is the accident of Governance that has given Oshiomhole the opportunity to bring national disgrace to us all. Without mincing words, as a Christian, I can never pray for God to forgive Oshiomhole because no matter how kind God is, there are many like Oshiomhole who are far from the fence of Judgment and not to be considered.
This discussion will not be concluded without examining one aspect of Oshiomhole's habit. And that is his penchant for violence and belligerence. As a former Labour Leader who in actual objective examination led the Nigerian congress into its eventual “demise” of being broken into 2 national bodies.
A manifestation of his penchant for violence and belligerence was the wide spread allegation that it was he who master mind the near over-throw of the leadership of the National Assembly, in which a group of heavily armed and masked officials of the DSS invaded the Senate with a view to forcing the impeachment of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki. Of course, the plot failed and represents a black spot on the Presidency. although the Vice President tried to do a successful damage control by instantly dismissing the Head of the DSS, Daura who was brought back into the service after he had retired.
That incident represents a National disgrace and what is more, after Daura's sack, evident abound that he is still very active in PMB's Administration. What a Nigeria!
Another aspect of Oshiomhole's habit is his garrulous propensity. He his too loquacious, talking ten times before he takes one action. For example the defection of Senator Victor to APC was made a regular talking stuff By Oshiomhole who described Akpabio's defection to APC as an “uncommon defection.” Indeed an uncommon defection because Akpabio's defection has triggered somewhat instability in Akwaibom State, since then leading to almost an invasion of the State House of Assembly to forcefully effect leadership change.
That plot again failed because Oshiomhole believes that as the Chairman of APC, he is now incharge of all aspects of PMB's Administration. Indeed it is a shame. He has always had a wrong image of himself that is why many believed that his appointment as the APC Chairman was the most unthoughtful and ill advised appointment because PMB, Tinubu and El Rufai did not know Oshiomhole who infact should do well as the leader of Agbero's in Agege Motor Park. Look at the confusion he has caused in Imo, Ogun and Zamfara, APC in those State.
In conclusion, Oshiomhole has inflicted mortal damage to APC as a Political Party and has he would leave a bitter legacy for which the party would begin a process of permanent disaster.
