Edo 2020: Oshiomole’s Apologies of Lies – By Dele Elempe

Some days ago, the disgraced APC national chairman sneaked into Edo State at night, Auchi precisely, with some of his followers shouting his ululation in a bid to revive his downfall.

As part of his revival stunt, he apologized to these unsuspecting followers that all he said about Pastor Ize-Iyamu in 2016 during the gubernatorial election were not true. And he used the opportunity to condemn Governor Obaseki as well.

In philosophy and logic, the classical Liar’s Paradox of a liar is the statement of a liar, that he or she is lying; for instance, declaring that “l am lying.” If the liar is indeed lying, then the liar is talking the truth, which means the liar just lied. And that’s the case of Oshiomole.

He said he was saying the truth about what he said about Pastor Ize-Iyamu in 2016. And as a compulsive liar, all that comes out of his mouth are all lies. His apologies are lies!

Lies are part of this disgraced APC Chairman, Adams Oshiomole’s DNA but his unsuspecting followers don’t see it as such. They think he is a propagandist when the truth is he is a barefaced liar!

He is unscrupulous in making unsubstantiated claims and declarations. And from his days as a unionist till today, he has been making a living from lies.

That was how he became a governor; through deceitful lies. And that was how he became the APC National Chairman, through lies.

He has been a bit successful in his designs to make lies sound truthful and deceit loved by his followers and worshippers.

Truth and Adams Oshiomole don’t mix. His lies are maximum forms of deceptions – far away from reality. No Edo citizen should take his public apology seriously.

He just told another lie. He should be discounted with his apologies. Rather, he should look for a place to make restitution with dust and ashes robbed all over his body.

Some of his followers are all over social media about his apologies which are meant to whip public sentiments. It takes the phenomenal effort of self-deception to believe Oshiomole or defend his positions.

His inexcusable lies are too obvious, disturbing, and dangerous to the society that is working on morality. He has long-standing disdain for truth. It is impossible for Oshiomole to have an honest conversation with the truth.

He witch-hunts the truth at will and compulsively in most of his public charades. And like what he said about Pastor Ize-Iyamu, Oshiomole too lie effortlessly.

To him, the truth should be a lie, the truth should not be true, the truth should be a subjective matter… depending on the situation.

And this is devious, dangerous and detrimental to the moral fabric of the society. Without caution, Oshiomole discredits and discard truth and makes it look like some concept that is essentially not needed.
