Former governor of Edo state Adams Oshiomhole has spoken on his purported 2023 presidential aspiration.
Recall that it was earlier reported that the former governor had stated on Facebook that he would be declaring on national TV.
The post had read: “Special Invitation. Dear Sir/Madam.
“I wish to specially invite you to Comrade Adams Oshiomhole’s public declaration to contest for the office of President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, in the 2023 general election, under the platform of the APC.”
Social media invites had also being sent to some journalists and other stakeholders on Friday morning, asking them to attend Oshiomhole’s presidential declaration at the Federal Capital Territory FCT Council for Arts and Culture in Area 10, Abuja.
Posters of the former labor leader also lined major streets.
Some of his supporters who visited the venue were however told that the event would no longer hold.
When Vanguard contacted the former governor he said: “it must be a mistake”, adding, “I will not declare on the pages of Newspapers. If I will declare, it will be to people”.
