Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has finally accepted his fate following the crushing defeat of his anointed candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu in last Saturday’s gubernatorial election in Edo State in the hands of incumbent Governor Godwin Obaseki.
In the one minute and 39 seconds video recorded after a walkout in his personal gymnasium located inside his Benin resident on Wednesday , the failed godfather said contrary to the general perception of Nigerians that he was not weighed down by the outcome of the election, he remains strong and healthy.
“In life, you work hard and leave God for the outcome. You do your best and trust God to bless your efforts. I feel good, I feel strong, thank God. In life, you win some and you lose some but life goes on”, he said.
He said was aware that “a lot of people will be thinking now, oh, Comrade must be down, but I am not down. When God says you are not down, you are not down and I am not down.”
On the conduct of the poll, the ex-Governor said he was moved to tears by the determination of aged people who came out to vote during the election despite the challenges.
“If septuagenarians were not frustrated because card their card readers are not working, it inspired me that if at their age they don’t give up, why should I give up.
“And I ask our people to have faith in our country because we are not going to have another one. This is our country and we must make it great. We must strengthen democracy, we must improve on it. No matter the outcome of an election, or a particular edition of a process, have faith in God and have faith in our country,” he stated.
