National Chairmanship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole has stated that he never oppressed anyone during his reign as governor of Edo for eight years.
He made this known on Tuesday when he met Senate President Bukola Saraki and senators elected on the platform of the APC.
Oshiomhole said: “I am here to state my intention to run for the position of chairman of our party the APC and solicit your support for my candidature.
“Part of the challenge is that various organs of the party have not functioned. As a governor I have not oppressed anyone, power can be tempting.
“In the forthcoming convention every senator is a delegate in his [or her] right. I confess that while I was in NLC i fought with some governors – not against them. They understand that is nothing personal but for good.”
On his part, Saraki said he believes in Oshiomhole effecting changes in the party.
“I believe in your capacity to do the things you said you will do,” the senate president said.
