Former governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has told the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, that “armed robbers of yesterday” cannot be Nigerians’ option. He said this while maintaining that rebuilding Nigeria cannot be an overnight affair.
The former Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, boss urged the public and the media to always go back to things that have be written in the past concerning Nigeria’s current economic hardship, herdsmen attack and unemployment to see if they were caused by the ruling party.
Oshiomhole insisted that the current economic hardship was the result of the PDP stealing money meant for public welfare. He spoke to newsmen at his Iyamho countryhome in Etsako West Local Government Area of the state, at the weekend.
According to him, “It was laughable for people to raise issues of unemployment, economic hardship, and herdsmen attacks against the ruling All Progressives Congress when several editorials written by Nigeria’s newspapers in the past had always harped on such issues.
“The daily confessions of PDP members on how public funds were looted should tell us that ‘the armed robbers of yesterday cannot be our option. All the newspapers editorials written from the days of the PDP were about all these issues you raised. They did not develop yesterday. What was meant for public welfare was stolen by the PDP.”
