Former President of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC), Mr Peter Esele, has described as an insult, the rumour that he was gunning for the deputy governorship position in Edo State as against his wish to be the next governor.
“Do you know how many local governments I have visited and what I am going through right now? Do you know the number of sleepless nights I have had and the number of people I have met? You think I am doing these things because I want to become a deputy governor?” he asked.
“That is an insult. If I want to become the deputy governor, I can reach out to whoever is the leading aspirant and negotiate and I will not need to waste the energy and resources that I am deploying now. If I want to become deputy governor, I know what to do,” Esele said.
