… You are a big thief and even worse than the devil, Igbinedion to Oshiomhole.
… Promised to expose the APC National Chairman at the appropriate time.
An Edo based Human Activist, Barr. Ohaikhire Benson Igbinedion, has asked the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, to explain to the people of Edo State how he allegedly squandered trillions of Federal Allocations and Internally Generated Revenue he collected during his eight years rule.
In a statement personally signed in Benin City on Wednesday, Igbinedion promised to expose Oshiomhole at the appropriate time.
Reacting to the state of the nation, particularly the hue and cry about the National Assembly, and his (Oshiomhole) uncouth manners, Igbinedion, however, said Oshiomhole is a lousy man who is only good at noise making, leaving the business of the party and facing the NASS leadership issue.
He said: “I have made it very clear time without numbers that the current APC National Chairman will collapse the party very soon. His leadership will do more harm than good to the party. I do not intend to dignify Adams Oshiomhole any longer by raising his issue in the media but truth be told; that man is a disaster to APC.
“He should explain to the people of Edo State how he spent the Federal Allocations and Internally Generated Revenues running into trillions of naira during his eight years rule.
“He should tell the people of Edo how much he is paying as Land Tax for his house in Iyamho worth over N10 billion and other properties he acquired in Dubai, Cape Town in South Africa, San Francisco in United States of America, a high rise apartment in Atlanta also in America and in London. He is calling everybody a thief but Oshiomhole is the biggest thief in Benin City today.”
The legal practitioner added that Oshiomhole who had allegedly mismanaged the financial resources of the state, which were entrusted in his care for eight years, has over the night became an anti-corruption crusader. I wonder why a President who claimed to be incorruptible could not identify a corrupt public officer like Oshiomhole? I wonder why a party that claimed to be progressive would have a crook like Oshiomhole at the helm of its affairs? I also wonder why the ugly man is busy about the Senate leadership as if Saraki is the only assignment given to him by the party? Oshiomole’s cacophony is just to divert the attention of Nigerians and cover many shames of this administrtion. He is an expert in propaganda anyway.
“Oshiomhole has failed; the people of Edo State now know him better. Nigerians should also be aware of the Judas. Oshiomhole is the least qualified person to talk about corruption in the country today because his actions and programmes in Edo State epitomised corruption.
“He has called everybody in Nigeria a thief; has called Former President Olusegun Obasanjo a thief; called Former President Goodluck Jonathan a thief, he called Ex-Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okojo-Iweala a thief, calling the Senate President, Bukola Saraki a thief and host of others. Yet, he cannot prove his cases. I don’t think he knows the meaning of a thief. I wouldn’t blame him, he has a questionable education background.
“He lives in a glass house and throwing stones. President Muhammadu Buhari will soon find out the real Oshiomhole by the time we provide documents against him.
“If this is the same man that will advertise the products of APC in the general elections, the party won’t fly,” he said.
