Chief Sunny Onuesoke, former governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2007 election, has faulted statement credited to Adams Oshiomhole, Edo State governor, in which he was alleged to have accused PDP of destroying Nigeria in its 16 years’ administration of the country.
Speaking to a group of journalists in Ughelli, Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State, Chief Onuesoke observed that it appeared Oshiomhole was elected by Edo people to only criticise PDP and do nothing else.
The PDP strong man, who noted that Governor Oshiomhole had wasted eight years in the state criticising PDP 16 years administration without for once proffering any solution.
He reminded Oshiomhole that the problem of Nigeria did not start 16 years ago as he claimed, adding that he should stop deceiving and confusing Nigerians instead of fixing the challenges in his state.
Wondering how long Oshiomhole and his APC cohorts would continue to blame PDP instead of fulfilling their promises to the electorate, Onuesoke argued that nothing good had come out from APC government except hatred, vindictiveness, tribal leadership, loss of jobs, unemployment, hardships, vengeance, deception, blame game and propaganda.
He wondered why APC government under President Muhammadu Buhari could not improve on what former President Goodluck Jonathan left behind.
Urging Oshiomhole to apologise to Nigerians for his deception, Onuesoke observed, “It took PDP 16 years to make a dollar to 197, but it took APC just one year to make a dollar N350. It took PDP 16 years to destroy Nigeria, but it took APC just one year to massacre, dismantle, kill and bury Nigeria.
“It took PDP 16 years to make fuel price N87/litre, Kerosene at N100/litre and diesel at N115/litre. But it took APC one year to make petrol N145/litre, kerosene at N210/litre, and diesel at N300/litre. It took PDP 16 years to keep the price of rice at N7,000 per bag, but it took APC one year to project it to N18,000.00 per bag.
“I am beginning to think that while PDP is better in administration, APC is better in opposition. That is why APC is still campaigning, blaming, promising and playing opposition party despite being the ruling party after one year,” he stated.
