PDP has exhausted its lies, - OshiomholeBy kellychi 08:22 Fri, 23 Jan 2015 Comments
The Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole,
has said that the Peoples Democratic Party has
run out of lies having failed to discredit the
presidential candidate of the All Progressives
Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari
(retd.), over his academic qualification to contest
the February 14 presidential election.
The Government College, Katsina (formerly
Provincial Secondary School) had on
Wednesday released Buhariâ€™s credential shortly
after he had formerly requested the school to
make the document available to dispel the
controversy surrounding his qualification.
However, Oshiomhole said that Buhariâ€™s
capability was not in doubt, adding that that he
would secure the votes of Nigerians, even if he
tendered his electricity bill.
The governor, who spoke during an inspection
of road projects at the Egor Market in Upper
Siluko area of the state capital on Thursday, said
that Nigerians were tired of the current situation,
because of the Federal Governmentâ€™s failure to
provide the basic infrastructure in the country.
Oshiomhole said, â€œIâ€™m happy that you people
are following what is happening. One young
man said even if Buhari didnâ€™t have a school
certificate, he is better than another man who
has a doctorate degree in Zoology, but we canâ€™t
even get fish on our table.
â€œThe truth is that everybody is tired. Today in
this market, Iâ€™m sure you donâ€™t have light. We
have provided the electric poles and the
transformer but they will not give us light.
â€œSo, 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 says I will do
something, he will do it, not a leader that will
promise during campaigns but will disappear
after the campaigns.â€
The governor also accused the Federal
Government of enriching a few individuals,
â€œand they are telling us they are going to bring a
lot of money to buy our votes.â€
â€œWhen they bring the money collect it, itâ€™s the
money they stole from you, but we will not
vote for them,â€ he added.
He also urged eligible voters who had yet to
collect the Permanent Voter Cards to do so at
the nearest Independent National Electoral
Commission office in order to vote for the APC
at all levels.
On his part, the spokesman for Egor Market
traders, Mr. Egbon Edowonyi, pledged the
support of the traders for the APC and its
