It seems like there is a love for politics in the Oshiomole family as, Dr Cyril Oshiomole, the first son of Adams Oshiomole has decided to join the race for Etsako federal constituency vacant seat.
Dr Cyril Oshiomole is the first son of Oshiomole from his late wife, Mrs Clara Oshiomole. According to Daily Post, posters campaigning for him can be seen in various strategic locations in Benin, including Auchi and other major communities in Etsako East, Central and West local government areas.
Some of the posters were also pasted in some parts of Benin City, especially in front of Denis Osadebe Government House and the state secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Written on the posters, with the picture of the medical doctor, are the following sentences: “Enough is Enough, “it is time for the New Generation”.
The Etsako federal constituency seat was declared vacant last month by speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara.
The previous occupant of the seat was Mr Philip Shaibu, who has been elected as deputy governor of the state. Dr Cyril is now running against 5 other people.
Meanwhile, Adams Oshiomhole may be the next national chairman of the APC. This is due to a report from The Nation that the current chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, is being considered for an ambassadorial position by the presidency.
