‘PDP has run out of falsehood’
GOVERNOR Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has run out of falsehoods to peddle about the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.
He based his assertion on the alleged failure of the PDP to successfully discredit Buhari over his academic qualification to contest the February 14 presidential election.
At and inspection of road projects at the Egor Market in the Upper Siluko area of Benin City, the state capital, the governor said Nigerians had become tired of the present situation where the Federal Government failed to provide basic infrastructure in the country.
Oshiomhole said: “I’m happy that you people are following what is happening. One young man said even if Buhari didn’t have a school certificate, he is better than another man who has a doctorate degree in Zoology, but we can’t even get fish on our table.
“The truth is that everybody is tired. Today in this market, I’m sure you don’t have light. We have provided the electric poles and the transformer but they will not give us light.
“So, the only solution is, after 16 years of the PDP, they have exhausted their lies. We have to bring Gen. Buhari because we want a leader with courage.
“When he (Buhari) says I will do something, he will do it; he’s not a leader that will promise during campaigns but will disappear after the campaigns.”
Governor Oshiomhole accused the Federal Government of enriching a few individuals, “and they are telling us they are going to bring a lot of money to buy our votes.”
“When they bring the money, collect it; it’s the money they stole from you, but we will not vote for them,” he said.
He said that Buhari’s capability was not in doubt, and that he would secure the votes of Nigerians even if he (Buhari) tendered his electricity bill.
However, the governor called on registered voters, who were yet to collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs), to do so at the nearest Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office, “so that they can stand a chance of voting for APC candidates at all levels.”
