I'm a militant says Oshiomhole

11 August 2016, 17:06

Abuja - Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole has said he has been a militant all his life and he will remain and retire as one not with guns, Herald reports.

Oshiomhole said this in Abuja on Wednesday during a forum tagged ‘The Podium’, organised by The Kukah Centre in collaboration with the Ford Foundation.

The programme, which seeks an interface between the electorate and policy makers, had the theme: “From Activism to Political Power: The Challenges of Democratic Governance in Nigeria”.

Oshiomhole said as an activist he was in governance to know the ropes, know how to help people and counter concepts like god-fatherism in politics.

According to Oshiomhole, a labourer is worthy of his wages, meaning if an employer is owing, he is breaching a contract.

Giving an informal account of his stewardship and why he carried out most of his actions, the governor said he stayed true to his activism years by not owing salaries.
