I was not placed under house arrest — Oshiomhole

<p class="">Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), has denied claims that he was placed under house arrest in Edo State.</p>

<h1>The report was debunked while briefing newsmen at his residence shortly after receiving Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, who defected to APC on Friday, December 13, 2019.</h1>

<p class=""><em>“I saw that they wrote a story that I was placed under house arrest. You can see l am here and not under any house arrest.</em></p>

<p class="">“<em>I stayed away from Ize-Iyamu’s rally to sustain the peace of the party . I did not want to be blamed for any violence.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“God knows my heart, and he will help me and he has been helping me. We will sustain the governance of this state under the APC.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“With Edo people as our principals and our ultimate employers we are grateful for the support they have given us in spite of any weaknesses.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“Our party does not believe in rigging. We have entrenched the culture of one-man-one-vote, and the name of the game is persuasion not violence,”</em> Oshiomhole said.</p>

<p class="">He, however, urged members of the party to enchew all forms of violence in order to sustain peace adding that there was no limit to being a member of APC.</p>

<p class="">He noted that while there was limit for being chairman, governor and tenure of president, there was no limit for being a member of the party.</p>

<p class="">According to him, once the members are united and comfortable, we will sustain the path of peace.</p>

<p class=""><em>“That is why I stayed away from the rally.”</em></p>
