The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s boss, Adams Oshiomhole, to focus on the allegations against him
The PDP said that Oshiomhole should submit himself to the Department of State Services and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to redeem his name – The opposition party also said that Oshiomhole is in no position to comment on its relationship with elected party officials The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Tuesday, July 2, urged Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to focus on the many allegations made against him instead of embarking on attacking the opposition party. Speaking through its national spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said that concerning its relationship with elected officials in the party, Oshiomhole is in no position to make any comment.
The statement said: “Instead of trying to launder his image by unnecessarily attacking the PDP, we advice Oshiomhole to redeem his name by submitting himself to the Department of State Services and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, to answer huge allegations of corruption as Edo state governor as well as alleged misconducts as APC chairman.
“This is a leader who had accepted that his party and the government it formed are sanctuaries of corrupt persons. “Moreover, instead of this fixation on the PDP, Oshiomhole already has his plate full with the crisis in his home state, Edo, where he is generally believed to be responsible for political tension by trying to force himself on the state governor, Governor Godwin Obaseki, as godfather.
“Oshiomhole needs to concentrate on the crisis rocking his party as well as the presidency where the members of the cabal are at daggers drawn over the sharing of positions as ‘booty‘ of a rigged election.” Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Oshiomhole on Monday, March 25, insisted that the party was not ready to share power with the opposition in the National Assembly. The national chairman said the APC will not allow what happened in 2015 to reoccur in 2019 as the party will need a collaborative legislature to provide good governance to the people. Oshiomhole disclosed this while meeting with incoming lawmakers on the platform of the ruling APC.
