Oshiomhole dubs APC Gov’s Forum DG a pig, says he will get stained fighting him

Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has likened the Progressives Governors Forum’s Director General, Salihu Lukman, to a big.

The immediate past national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) described Lukman as such shortly after his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, on Wednesday.

Lukman, who has remained one of Oshiomhole’s fiercest critics recently, alerted of plots to have Oshiomhole returned as the APC chairman.

He had also said that the APC governorship campaign in Edo State was personalised around Oshiomhole and that the candidate of the party, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu was an onlooker.

He added, “We need to appeal to Comrade Oshiomhole to ‘calm down’. This campaign is not about his person.”

Asked by State House correspondents to respond to the claim and other allegations Lukman had levelled against him in recent times, Oshiomhole said:

“You want me to engage in a fight with a pig? If you engage in a fight with a pig, the pig already is stained by its nature and you will wear your white garment, and in my own case, kaaki to go and wrestle with a pig? I will not.”

The sacked APC chairman also told the newsmen that his reputation in Edo State could be likened to that of President Buhari who, according to him, would remain relevant even when his tenure ends in 2023.
