PDP has exhausted its lies, - Oshiomhole

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 Buhari’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 Buhari’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 Government’s failure to

provide the basic infrastructure in the country.

Oshiomhole said, “I’m happy that you people

are following what is happening. One young

man said even if Buhari didn’t have a school

certificate, he is better than another man who

has a doctorate degree in Zoology, but we can’t

even get fish on our table.

“The truth is that everybody is tired. Today in

this market, I’m sure you don’t have light. We

have provided the electric poles and the

transformer but they will not give us light.

“So, 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.”

The governor also accused the Federal

Government of enriching a few individuals,

“and they are telling us they are going to bring a

lot of money to buy our votes.”

“When they bring the money collect it, it’s the

money they stole from you, but we will not

vote for them,” 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
