Oshiomhole Returns To Nigeria, Speaks On Encounter With DSS

After intense pressure from DSS and APC governors that made to flee for his dear life, APC
National Chairman Adams Oshiomole pictured turning up with his beautiful wife in far away USA.
Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has given an
insight on why he was quizzed by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).
TheCable on Friday reported that he was en route to Nigeria after visiting his indisposed wife,
Iara, in the US, and subsequently meeting Bola Tinubu, APC national leader, in the UK.
The APC chairman travelled out of the country after he was interrogated by the DSS over
allegations of collecting bribe during his party’s primary elections.


Speaking during an interaction with editors in Lagos on Saturday, Oshiomhole said he “saw DSS
only once and it was a conversation, not an arrest or detention”.
He said: “The conversation centred around APC primaries. The question now is whether or not it
is the DSS job to interfere in a political party’s issues. And if there’s an allegation of corruption, it
is the responsibility of EFCC and ICPC.” The former governor of Edo noted that the DSS did not ask him to return the next day, contrary
to media reports.

Oshiomhole said he was billed to travel abroad on Monday but postponed the trip for a meeting
with President Muhammadu Buhari. He said he eventually left the country on Tuesday.
Furthermore, the APC chairman said he was not released on administrative bail, adding that
Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi, did not come to pick him up from the DSS office.
He said: “I was the one who called Yahaya Bello and he came but I drove home in my own car.” Oshiomhole lashed out at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for calling on Interpol to arrest him, and for insinuating that he had fled the country over the matter.

He said: “What would they have said if it was the PDP chairman that was invited by DSS, for
instance over the dollar bazaar at their Port Harcourt primary? “They would have said democracy is under threat and would have fired a letter to the UN as they often ridicule themselves.”

The former labour leader alleged that “a few important members of APC may be conniving with PDP because they preferred the impunity of the PDP era”. Governors Rochas Okorocha of Imo and Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun are aggrieved over the APC primaries. They blame
Oshiomhole for their inability to get the gubernatorial tickets of the party
for their preferred candidates. Amosun has said he does not have a hand in
Oshiomhole’s invitation by the DSS.
