Mr. Loius Odion, Edo State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, on Wednesday gave reasons why Governor Adams Oshiomhole was interested in contesting for the office of the President using the All Progressives Congress, APC platform.

THE SUN reported that, Odion told newsmen in Benin that Oshiomhole has better credentials than other APC presidential aspirants to pick the party’s ticket.

"It is not a rumour, it is a fact, Oshiomhole is in the race. But if you expect the kind of jamboree that is currently taking place, where people embark on road show, promising heaven and earth, Oshiomole is not going to do that. I can tell you he is in the race. And it is in response to the yearnings of well meaning Nigerians that our country needs somebody of his pedigree at this point of our history to move Nigeria forward.

"You will even recall early this year when Governor Fashola said the nation needs somebody like Oshiomhole as president to change Nigeria. And Fashola as we all know, is a performing governor but he said being somebody that has stayed in Benin City before as a student of UNIBEN, he knows what Benin was then and today. And that is why he said Oshiomhole is a good material".

"Oshiomhole is going to come in not as a candidate of the South South but as a man whose face is known in every nook and cranny of Nigeria. That is the thing he is bringing in. His own credential is leadership integrity", Odion added.
