Jonathan Has Killed Many Edo Indigenes – Oshiomhole

Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole has
accused President Goodluck Jonathan’s
administration of killing many Edo indigenes
due to the alleged refusal by the President to
give ecological funds to areas devastated by
erosion in the state and many other APC
states.

He expressed regret that the president could
be bias along party lines where it concerns the
lives of Nigerians. He noted that the Edo
people who he has now deserted gave him 95
percent of their votes in 2011. He therefore
stressed the need for Jonathan and his party
to be voted out in 2015.

The Governor made the comments at the
traditional Urhokpota Ground Ring Road Benin
City, where he received the former Minister of
State for Works and PDP Chieftain, Engr. Chris
Ogiemwonyi and over two thousand of his
supporters into the APC. About 20 palace chiefs
led by Chief Jackson Igbinoba, and different
PDP groups, one of them led by Chief Arala
Osula, dumped the party for the APC.

“What is buried in the name of PDP can never
resurrect because the Bible says, he who die in
sin shall perish and languish in hell. And
because PDP died in sin, they killed, they
embezzled our money, they dehumanized our
people, they enveloped Benin with flood,
converted our young one to prostitution and
reduced Edo from the heart beat to a part of
the country that was now remember only by
reference to very negative headlines,” said
Oshiomole, stressing further why the PDP
needs to be voted out.

“It will take PDP more than a hundred years to
pay reparation to Edo people. If anybody
imagine what has happened in this state for
six years, then you can better calculate how
much they stole from the treasury of this state
and how many miles they set up backwards in
terms of where were are supposed to be. And
that is why when the President came here to
say that Edo will fall, I said well who is
speaking. Can a man who is on the ground
speak to a man who is on his feet?

“PDP has already been fallen and buried in Edo
state many many years ago. Yes in the last
election we asked our people to vote on the
basic of certain sentiments, and the PDP at the
Presidential level won 95 per cent of the votes.
But now Edo people are asking, what do we
have to show for it. The erosion caused by PDP
at Queen Ede has destroyed the schools built
for Edo child. That erosion is destroying the
Catholic Church, it has destroyed several
houses, killed many of our people.

“Federal PDP shared money to PDP states
including states where the President lost
election, they did not give one dim to the
people of Edo state. Our crime because we
voted wrongly. In Auchi, erosion have swept
away more then 50 per cent of the houses and
swept away others, they shared the ecology
money they gave no dim to the people of
Auchi. In Esan Central and West, erosion has
destroyed a number of communities, PDP
produced leaders in Esan land they did not
bring one dime to deal with erosion in Esan
land, but they gave money to Delta, they gave
money to Bayelsa, they gave money to Cross
River, they gave money to Niger, Jigawa,
Kaduna and others.

“What is our offence because we voted
wrongly? So when we say APC, Change PDP,
Change Jonathan it is informed by evidence.
We must change both the party and the driver.
PDP has failed for sixteen years they should
leave.

“And let me be very specific, if we had not
removed PDP in Edo we wold not have
experienced the change we are seeing today in
Edo. If we remove PDP from Abuja the way we
removed them from Edo we will have power,
universities will not be closing for six months,
they will not be distributing SURE-P through
PDP leaders, they will not be devaluing the
currency and they will not be acting like small
gods” he asserted.

Ogiemwonyi, while speaking at the event, said
he decided to dump the PDP after the party’s
failure to fix both the economic, security and
other problems bedevilling the nation. He
added that Governor Oshiomhole’s
developmental strides in Edo state and the
achievement of other APC governors convinced
him that APC means well for the Edo people
and Nigerians in general.
