Former governor of Edo state and ex-national chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has accused the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi of failing to tackle insecurity in Anambra state while he was governor.
Oshiomhole made this known while speaking during the youth conference of the ruling APC at the International Conference Centre in Abuja.
Sharing his opinion on Obi’s administration, Oshiomhole stated that Obi’s successor, Willie Obiano, while in power took it upon himself to demolish houses of kidnappers and Bakassi boys.
He argued that Bakassi boys started during Obi’s tenure but he could not do anything to put the group to an end.
Oshiomhole wondered how Obi would solve the nation’s challenges when he could not guarantee the safety of his state while he was governor.
He said: “For those of you who are social media warriors, there are issues here that you need to speak to. Go to google and look at the first six months of Governor Obiano administration in Anambra state.
What you will find on youtube, is Governor Obiano demolishing houses of kidnappers and those who were then referred to as Bakassi boys and Bakassi girls.
Who was the governor when Bakassi developed and who solved the problem? So, if a man could not solve a security challenge in his own state, which requires courage. How can he convince you that he will solve security challenges all over Nigeria?
“Don’t take it from me, go to Youtube and find out the first six, nine months of Governor Obiano and ask yourself, who was his predecessor, it will tell you it’s, Peter.”
He insisted that if Obi had done a good job while in office, Obiano would not have spent his first six months in office destroying the homes of bandits.
