Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has finally broken his silence over his defeat along with the Edo State governorship candidate under the APC, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
In a video that went viral on social media, Oshiomhole said he will never give up on democracy and he has no any other country but Nigeria.
He said in life “you win some you lose some”
He went further that he was inspired by the determination of the aged and nursing mothers who endured the harsh weather to cast their votes, saying,
“If women who are over 75 were not frustrated because 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.”
Oshiomhole said contrary to the thinking that he would be down by the outcome of the election, he remains strong and healthy.
He added, “In life, you work hard and leave the outcome to God. 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
“A lot of people will be thinking now that 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.”
