The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has said ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo’s only dream was to take Nigeria back to the days of Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe who remained in power for over three decades.
Oshiomhole also said President Muhammadu Buhari would not have to change his name or break grounds at the Niger Bridge to win votes.
He assured that President Buhari would win the 2019 elections by doing the right things and obeying his consciences as a man of integrity.
Speaking in Owerri, the Imo state capital, during the South East mega rally for President Buhari’s second term ambition, Oshiomhole said: “Everything they said was impossible, Buhari has demonstrated that they are possible. For the first time, we have seen military generals being brought on trial in advancing the anti-corruption crusade of his administration.
“Truth is bitter, those who are writing letters now, governed as absolute rulers for 3 years and came back for another 8 years, what did they do for the second Niger Bridge? His (Obasanjo’s) only dream was to take us back to Mugabe where there is no tenure ending. We thank a great Igbo man, a great Comrade Chief Ken Nnanami.
“Okorocha is a great asset to APC in the South East. I am a believer that in matters of politics, it is not like matters in the bible where we are told that we may believe without seeing. In politics you rather see before you believe.
I have come and have seen people, energetic youths and intelligent women and men under the rain to show support for President Buhari. With this rally, I am assuring that our opponents who had banked on the South-East won’t sleep tonight.
“Rochas, you have shown who owns the land, for so long we have been having the problems of People Deceiving People (PDP) when they come to the South East, they answer Azikiwe, but doing what Azikiwe did becomes a problem for them.
The South East had everything going for them in terms of positions in government the President of the Senate, SGF, Finance Minister, CBN Governor etc but still they couldn’t construct or reconstruct the second Niger Bridge,” he stated.
