In Return He Publicly Supported Obasanjo And Endorsed His Candidacy When He Was Re-Elected In 2003. The Textile Union Elected Oshiomhole For A Second Term As General Secretary, While He Continued As President Of The NLC.

The Relationship With Obasanjo Turned Sour As Neglect Of Local Oil Refineries Led To Reliance On Imported Gasoline, Followed By Rises In The Price Of Fuel. Oshiomhole Led Strikes And Demonstrations Against The Increases.

He Faced Arrests, Tear Gas And Temporary Blockades Of Union Offices, And Obasanjo Introduced Legislation To Make It More Difficult For The NLC To Strike. The NLC Alleges That On 9 October 2004 Oshiomhole Was Abducted By State Security Services During A Protest, But The Nigerian Government Say He Submitted To Voluntary Custody.

However, The AC Contested The Election On The Basis Of Various Irregularities. On 20 March 2008, An Edo State Election Tribunal Nullified The Election Of Oserheimen Osunbor And Declared Oshiomhole The Winner. On 11 November 2008, A Federal Appeal Court Sitting In Benin City Upheld The Ruling Of The State’s Elections Petitions Tribunal, Declaring Oshiomole To Be The Governor Of Edo State. The Decision Was Based On Several Voting Irregularities.
