From Tony Osauzo, Benin
EDO State Governor Adams Oshiomhole, has attributed the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to God’s vengeance on the party’s alleged destruction of the country.
Oshiomhole added that thieves who brought Nigeria to its knees were now on the run.
The governor, who stated this when he feted Muslims at the Government House in Benin, as part of the Eid-el-Fitri celebration, assured them that Nigeria would be a great country again with actions taken by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The governor urged Muslims to thank Allah for making Buhari president.
Apparently replying Buhari’s critics, Oshiomhole said “the president has to be rigid to be able to find the thieves and to avoiding building on a foundation allegedly destroyed by the PDP.” He stressed that “Nigeria would have become a collapsed state if Jonathan had continued as president.”
Explaining that the first step to make the needed change was to fix wrongs done in the past and cleanse the rot done by the PDP, the governor said past administrations failed to save, to make adequate plans for the country but looted the national treasury carelessly.
“We have to thank Allah for making it possible for Buhari to emerge. God so love Nigeria that He brought Buhari at this time.
“If Buhari had not come, we will not know why the Nigeria government failed to tackle Boko haram. They are now confessing like witches. A pastor who emerged as candidate confessed to collecting N700 million from a bank,” Oshiomhole said.
