Chairmanship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has boasted to defeat his opponents contesting against him at the party’s June 23 national convention.
Other aspirants in the race with Comrade Oshiomhole included his predecessor Prof. Oserheimen Osunbor, a former Cross River governor, Clement Ebri and Ibrahim Emokpaire.
Fielding questions from newsmen after commissioning his campaign office, in Abuja, on Sunday, the former govermor of Edo state revealed that one-time Minority Leader House of Representatives, Hon. Faruk Adamu Aliyu, has graciously accepted to be his Campaign Director.
Oshiomhole equally expressed confidence that many governors, National Assembly members and other party stakeholders will support his aspiration.
“In a boxing match, you do not ask a featherweight to go into the ring with a heavyweight. It is going to be a very interesting convention. I think for all of us who believe in democracy, this is to be expected,” he said.
On whether he is scared that some governors would not support him, he said, “I want to talk about my own state that many people at various levels including governors, senators past and present and our current governor, I am very hopeful that they will be in my support.”
