Anenih’ll fail again in Edo, says Oshiomhole

Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has expressed opti­mism that Chief Anthony Anenih would fail in his latest project to secure an­other term for President Goodluck Jonathan, just as he failed in all the elec­tions in the state since he (Oshiomhole ) became gov­ernor.

Speaking at a rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at Ekpoma in Edo Central Senatorial district, Oshiomhole said the people of Esan land should ask An­enih the role he allegedly played in the incarceration of the late Governor of the defunct Bendel State, Profes­sor Ambrose Alli.

According to Oshiomhole, the time has come for the people Esan land to know who played what role in the development of the area.

He urged the people to be wary of the antics and lies of expired godfathers in the state.

Oshiomhole said, “The people must know the truth. Once upon a time, Bendel people from Delta to Edo elected one of your sons, Prof Ambrose Alli of blessed memory. He was elected not only by Esan people but by the entire Bendel State. He established the Ambrose Alli University. You cannot forget the roads he built in Esan land and beyond Esan land. Who removed Ambrose Alli from power? The NPN and their Chieftains in Esan land.”

Oshiomhole continued: “Chief Anenih came here to say it was General Buhari who jailed Ambrose Alli. You voted for Alli but we all know who removed him. They declared somebody else a winner and declared Alli the loser in an election that he won, exactly what they did to me.

“He can never rewrite history. He cannot run away from his own shadow. He must be punished with your votes. I was shocked they have gone to recruit one of Alli’s daughters to join them to campaign.

“The lady needs to think again. You cannot dine with the people who removed the crown from the head of your father. So when they say Bu­hari was the Head of State when Alli was jailed, do you know what they jailed Alli for? It was that Alli gave a contract to a leader who is a top notcher in PDP today. The man did not do the job. That was what led to the military investigation of Alli.

“Never again should they come to lie to you. I have given you several reasons why PDP must go and APC must come. I urge you to go home and spread the good news. We want General Bu­hari to come. They say he has no certificate but he became a General”, he said.

The Governor also ac­cused the PDP Federal Gov­ernment of further impover­ishing the poor through its kerosene scam.

Speaking at separate ral­lies at Ikpoba Okha and Oredo Local Government Areas in Edo South Sena­torial district, Oshiomhole said, “From Otuoke to Benin City to Lagos to Ekpoma to Iyahmo to Sokoto, kerosene is now N150-N160 per litre. For every N150 you spend in buying kerosene, PDP steals N100 because in the books of NNPC, they have it on records that kerosene is N50 per litre”.

Oshiomhole continued, “When a government cheats the poor people to enrich few people who are buying private jets, will you vote for that kind of party again? When we say President Jona­than should go home, it is not out of hatred. After 16 years, PDP is like an impotent man, it cannot bring development to the nation. They cannot give light, they cannot pro­vide jobs, they cannot repair refineries, they can only pro­duce poverty.”
