House of Reps bye election: Oshiomhole’s son’s posters flood Edo streets
The campaign posters of Dr. Cyril Oshiomhole, the first son of the immediate past Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, are now in Benin and major towns in Etsako Federal Constituency of the state.
The posters were seen pasted in strategic locations in Auchi and other major communities in Etsako East, Central and West Local Government Areas.
The colourful posters have also been extended to Benin City, specifically in front of Denis Osadebe Government House as well as the state secretariat of the All Progressives Congress.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the posters suggest that the trained medical doctor has joined the race for the vacant seat of Etsako Federal Constituency.
NAN reports that the posters have inscriptions such as: “Enough is Enough” and “It is time for the New Generation”.
The seat for the Etsako Federal Constituency was declared vacant after the occupant, Philip Shaibu, was elected deputy to Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State.
Oshiomhole’s entrance into the race has increased the aspirants to six, since the seat was declared vacant by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, in December 2016.
