Oshiomhole May Dump Senate For Tinubu’s Ministerial Position




Former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is set to dump his Senatorial seat for a Ministerial appointment, as he is keen to be part of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s cabinet.

According to exclusive report in THEWILL, Oshiomhole was actually not interested in the Senatorial position but contested for it to play safe in case the APC failed to win the Presidential election.

Oshiomhole who is the former governor of Edo State won the Edo North Senatorial election in February 2023 Presidential/ National Assembly Polls with 107,110 votes to defeat Francis Alimikhena of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the incumbent, who scored 55,344 votes.


Quoting a top ranking sources within the ruling APC however, the newspaper report that Oshiomhole is currently lobbying President Tinubu to be appointed as Minister representing Edo State in his cabinet when it is constituted.

”Now that APC has won the Presidential election, Oshiomhole, a close ally of President Tinubu is keen to serve as a minister and he has intensified.his lobby to represent Edo in the Tinubu’s cabinet”

“It was also gathered that Oshiomhole feel that as the APC leader in Edo State, it will be more strategic for him to occupy a Ministerial position as he believes this will give him better chance not only to mobilise for his preferred candidate in the 2024 Edo governorship election but to assist APC to win the election”, the source confined to THEWILL.
