The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, on said that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, will sell the county if given the chance.
Oshiomhole said this while urging Nigerians to reject the past leaders who have failed this country in the forthcoming general elections, in order to enable the country to move forward.
During the opening re-election campaign of Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong at the Rwang Pam Stadium in Jos on Friday, January 4, 2019, Oshiomhole that the former President Olusegun Obasanjo would not escape prosecution if President Muhammadu Buhari decides to probe the power sector. He said:
“Obasanjo said in 1999 that if he was elected President with his Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, he would fix the power sector in six months and that there would be electricity supply all over Nigeria. Many years later, we realised what he meant.
“He and his Vice-President spent $16bn on power sector, after eight years there was more darkness in Nigeria than when they assumed office. So when President Muhammadu Buhari took over in 2015, he asked a question: where is the power? If Mr President pursues the answer to that question to its logical conclusion, he must put Obasanjo on trial.”
The APC national chairman expressed regrets that those who once led the country into misery and watched the collapse of the power sector and other sectors of the economy had regrouped to return to power. He urged Nigerian to reject them in the forthcoming election.
“Atiku is from the customs and (Peter) Obi is a trader. Their ticket is part of Obasanjo’s PDP. They can never change their colours. Already, Atiku has said he would sell the NNPC if elected. If given the chance, I’m sure he would sell the country. So, Nigerians should not vote them during the next election.”
“I urged Nigerians not to support the sale of Nigeria by the PDP. You must say no to Atiku. His running mate, Peter Obi, does not have respect for the truth.”
Oshiomhole, who presented the APC’s flag to Lalong commended his administration’s performance in the last three and half years, especially for restoring peace to the state and urged the people to support his re-election bid.
