Obasanjo Will Be Prosecuted If....Oshiomole Threatens

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, on Friday  said former President Olusegun Obasanjo would not escape prosecution if President Muhammadu Buhari decides to probe the power sector.

The former governor of Edo State spoke in Jos during the opening of Plateau State  Governor Simon Lalong’s reelection campaign at the Rwang Pam  Stadium.

He said,  “Obasanjo said in 1999 that if he was elected President with his Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, he would fix the power sector in six months and that there would be electricity supply all over Nigeria. Many years later, we realised what he meant.

“He and his Vice-President spent $16bn on power sector,  after eight years there was more darkness in Nigeria than when they assumed office. So when President Muhammadu  Buhari took over in 2015, he asked a question: where is the power? If Mr President pursues the answer to that question to its logical conclusion, he must put Obasanjo on trial.”
Oshiomhole expressed regrets that those he said supervised the collapse of the power sector and other sectors of the economy had regrouped to return to power.

He urged Nigerians to reject them in the forthcoming general elections to enable the country to move forward.

He said,  “Atiku is from the customs and  (Peter)  Obi is a trader. Their ticket is part of Obasanjo’s PDP. They can never change their colours.  Already, Atiku has said he would sell the NNPC if elected. If given the chance, I’m sure he would sell the country. So,  Nigerians should not vote them during the next election.”

Oshiomhole,  who presented the APC’s flag to Lalong commended his administration’s performance in the last three and half years,  especially for restoring peace to the state.

He urged the people to support his re-election bid.

Also speaking on the occasion, the Director-General of the  Buhari Campaign Organisation and former governor of Rivers State, Mr Rotimi Amaechi,  said  Buhari meant well for the country.

Lalong expressed confidence that the APC would win all elections in the state and at the national level.

In an obvious reference to the PDP governorship candidate, Jeremiah Useni, the governor said,  “I was told that I was contesting an election with somebody. I looked at my left and right, and I said I was looking for the man. It turned out that I am contesting an election against a boy. Can we contest an election with a boy and expect to lose? It means that the election is finished.”
