“Comrade Adams Oshiomhole we know you, we know your worth, we know you can deliver, there is nothing that you say here we don’t know, we trust you , we know you very well, trusting that Otuo would deliver you.
Our son here has also come with you , we would deliver him. I commit all of you to the hands of our ancestors , they would grant you success.”
Those were the soothing words of HRH Uzoyare Julius Ojeabuo, the Ovie of Otuo, (Obokhiome the 4th of Otuo Kingdom) when former Edo State Governor Comrade Adams Oshiomhole went to see the monarch to seek his Royal blessings for his Edo North Senatorial ambition.
Oshiomhole, who went alongside his campaign team, was humbled by the warm welcome he received from the people of Otuo and the Ovie of Otuo.
In continuation of his Ward to Ward tour for the APC in the upcoming general elections, the deputy DG of the APC Presidential Campaign Council stopped at the palace before beginning his electoral campaigns in Otuo, which began with a town hall meeting with the prestigious “Otuo Union” before proceeding to other wards in Otuo.
In his remarks, Oshiomhole expressed gratitude to his Highness for the wonderful welcome, recognition, and trust shown to him. He also pledged to keep his word and took the chance to highlight some of the things he had accomplished for Otuo while he was the State Governor, even appointing their son,Pally Iriase, as Secretary to the State Government.
He also took advantage of the occasion to rally support for APC presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the upcoming elections.
The Royal Prayers for Adams Oshiomhole, the APC House of Assembly Candidate,Eric Okaka and the Director General of the Tinubu Campaign Organization in Edo North, Abu Millionaire, were the event’s high point.
