Adams Oshiomole, former APC chairman has asked the Nigerian electorate not to consider the Labour Party’s Presidential candidate’s (Peter Obi’s) claim to fix Nigeria’s security challenge especially as he couldn’t fix Anambra’s as Governor of the state.
The former NLC President asked Nigerians to go and check the Internet to see that when Willy Obiano took over the reins from the Labour Party presidential candidate, he was demolishing buildings used by Bakassi boys to perpetuate crimes which according to him implies that his predecessor couldn’t solve the problem.
But Nigerians will quickly remember that the last time Oshiomole was on the news, he was confessing that he only opposed former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan during his re-election bid in 2015 for political reasons and not because the former President was not good enough.
Such a man should never be taken seriously when he asks people not to vote for a candidate again because he confessed that he misled Nigerians into what we are in today for selfish political reasons.
Even apart from his confessions, Nigerians will note that this same former Governor of Edo State asked his people in Edo state to vote for current Governor Obaseki in 2014 who ran for his first term under APC as the best man to take over from him while describing Obaseki’s then PDP counterpart – Osagie Ize-Iyamu with several unprintable and untypeable names but when both candidates switched parties in 2020 the same Oshiomole was shamelessly on his kneels begging the people of Edo state to forgive him for misleading them to vote Obaseki four year earlier that Ize-Iyamu was indeed the better candidate and that they should forget all the insults he poured on the clergyman cum politician.
For a man who speaks from both sides of his mouth and puts up a dual personality – the one as Governor/APC chairman being a sharp contrast from that of himself as NLC President, one cannot really be sure when to take such a person seriously.
Nigerians should also note that even when the former Anambra Governor who he claimed ‘worked’ (Obaino) left office just early this year, his own successor still had serious security challenges to deal with which Governor Soludo is already providing solutions to in his first six months in charge also which was just interestingly completed last week.
Oshio baba, as they say, you can fool some people sometimes but you cannot fool everybody every time. For now our mumu don re re do!
