2023:Peter Obi Cannot Fix Nigeria Insecurity – Oshiomhole
A former governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, said the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, cannot fulfil his promise of tackling insecurity and fixing Nigeria’s economy if elected into office in 2023.
Oshiomhole, a former chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC spoke at the APC Youth Summit of the party in Abuja on Sunday.
According to Oshiomhole the former Edo governor, Obi’s record as governor of Anambra State between 2006 to 2014 does not suggest that he has the capability to tackle security challenges.
He said Obi’s successor Willie Obiano has to embark on destruction of houses in Anambra State after he took over.
Oshiomhole, a close associate of Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of APC challenged the youths to go on the internet to investigate his claims
“For those of you who are social media warriors, go to google and look at the first six months of Governor Obiano’s administration in Anambra state. What you are going to find on YouTube is Governor Obiano using bulldozers to demolish the homes of kidnappers and those involved in Bakassi boys and
“Who was the governor when Bakassi developed in Anambra State? Who solved the problem? If a man could not fix the security challenges in Anambra State, which requires courage, how can he convince you that he will fix security all over Nigeria? Don’t take it from me, go to YouTube. I don’t want to look for trouble, I am a small man, anybody can deal with me.
“If he had solved the security problem, would Obiano be demolishing people’s houses, the houses of kidnappers? When he says, ‘I will fix Nigeria ask him, have you fixed your state?” he said.
“He calls himself a trader, what trade does he do? Importing or exporting? What does he import? Find out. You’ll know those brutalising the economy,” he said.
