Today, the Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, spoke with State House correspondents in Abuja, shortly after meeting Buhari. He said, “The PDP destroyed the country. I mean from the lips of American officials; senior officials of
the State Department said one minister under PDP cornered as much as $6b. He said even by Washington standard, that is earth-quaking.
So, PDP is a party that presided over the liquidation of our nation, destroyed all our institutions, converted the Armed Forces commanders to use them as if they were political thugs, converted NTA to a party megaphone, destroyed the SSS, went after opposition as if we were rabbits to be pursued into our holes, compromised even student unions and destroyed everything that you can think of and elevated religion to a state affair.
Under the party, Israel became a place you visit every week; they placed pastors against mallams, placed North against South, East against West just to retain power; elevate Obas and Obis with dollars. Mr. Carson, who was the Assistant Secretary of State, when we visited him in company of Senator Saraki, then as chairman of the Governors’ Forum – on the eve of Obama’s first visit to Africa – and we went to complain, ‘why is Nigeria not on the list?’
What he said for me was quite instructive compared to what he said last week. Then he said ‘you know, we who see ourselves not just as friends of Nigeria, each time we think there is light at the end of the tunnel and it is time to encourage Nigeria to build on it, you would wake up the following day under President Jonathan to find out that even the tunnel had been removed.
Now last week, this same Carson chaired the President’s address at the Institute of Peace and he said ‘we now have a man of enormous integrity; one that has shown so much faith in the democratic process; one that refused to be frustrated even in the face of massively rigged elections. He submitted to the judicial process and even when that was compromised he never gave up.”…. No one is above Miatake. PDP will make corrections wen they regain power in 2019……
