Former governor of Anambra state and presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has been dragged in the mud and thrown under the bus by former national chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomole.
The APC leader mocked Obi’s promise to tackle insecurity and the economy asking how he could do on national level what he failed to do at state level.
Oshiomole was speaking on Sunday at the Young Leaders Summit, organized by his party in Abuja.
“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’s administration in Anambra state,” Oshiomole began.
He added: “What you will find on YouTube is governor Obiano using bulldozers to demolish the houses of kidnappers and those who were involved in what they called Bakassi boys or even girls.
“Who was the governor when Bakassi developed in Anambra and who solved the problem? So, if a man couldn’t fix a security challenge in his own state which requires courage, how can he convince that he would fix the security challenges all over Nigeria?
“Don’t take it from me. Go to YouTube and find out about the first six months of governor Obiano and find out who was his predecessor.
“If the [predecessor] had solved the problem, will Obiano be using bulldozers to demolish people’s houses — houses of kidnappers and Bakassi boys? So, when they say ‘I will fix Nigeria’, did you fix your state?”
