POLITICS: Governor Adams Oshiomole Accuses President Jonathan of Abandoning EDO State

The Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has said that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, President Goodluck Jonathan, will not secure the votes of the people of the state in next month’s presidential election due to what he described as the abandonment of the state. Oshiomhole argued that President Jonathan did not fulfil his promise to contribute to the development of the South-South state, despite enjoying 95 per cent of votes of Edo people for his re-election in 2011.

The governor spoke at separate rallies of the All Progressives Congress in Ehor and Igueben, in Uhunmwode Igueben Local Government Area on Saturday. He explained that in spite of several letters to the Federal Government to assist the state on erosion challenges, the Jonathan administration neglected Edo after persuading them to vote for him as their brother in 2011.
He, however, said that the people of the state had become wiser now and would “vote the President out on February 14, for abandoning them.”
He said, “The last time, we voted for President Jonathan. He got 95 per cent of the total votes in Edo State. Yet, I cannot think of any meaningful thing he has done in the state.
“Last year, President Jonathan gave N2bn each to some PDP states even where he lost election to deal with erosion. Those that don’t have flood erosion were given money for desertification but we in Edo State that voted for him got nothing. I am not lamenting this. We have learnt from it and are determined not to repeat our mistakes.”
Oshiomhole also accused the Federal Government of failing to prosecute “those indicted” in the ill-fated immigration recruitment exercise in 2014, adding that it “is a clear indication that President Goodluck Jonathan did not care about the welfare of the Nigerian youths.

“People lost their lives. Last week, the relatives of those who died in Benin were protesting to us that the Federal Government have not given them even the jobs they promised.”

He, however, expressed confidence that Nigerians would vote for change at all levels in the country, adding that “I believe that with Maj. Gen. Buhari, Nigeria will be in a safer hand beginning with security.”

In spite of Buhari killing Ambrose Alli.. this is a shame coming from Adams. He should go ahead and vote for his principal. He has been campaigning for Buhari. So he cant be campaigning for Buhari whilst voting for GEJ. We still have not seen any turn around in Edo for his two terms.

@okey: do you know ONE that makes me laugh with politicians is that, they only digg into their opponent weakness to capitalize on. They will never pronounce their opponent success story. NEVER !

@okey: it's been long i heard from OSHOMOLE. one thing we know is that every party thinks it has supporters no matter their NUMBERS. for instance, KOWA party that Prof. Sonaiya as its presidential candidate will of course boost to vote out PDP,

And he's said the truth. Remember I did touch on this issue yesterday I think. The ecological funds for the erosion hasn't been given to opposition states but Delta got theirs and did NOTHING. Adams isn't my fav man, infact I think he's ridiculous most times but he is spot on here. Will Edo people vote GEJ? That isn't up to Adams cept of course he does his rigging like he did in the local Govt elections couple years back.
