- PDP has again hit hard at former APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole
- The Edo state chapter of the party asked Oshiomhole to present his primary six certificate
- Philip Shaibu urged the electorate to support the policies of the incumbent governor by voting for PDP and defend their votes in the election
Adams Oshiomhole, the immediate past national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has been asked by the Edo state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to present his primary school leaving certificate if he really attended school.
Vanguard reports that the chairman of the PDP campaign council for the Edo governorship election, Chief Dan Orbih, made the call Monday, August 3, while addressing party members and supporters in ward 5 Ososo and ward 10 Dangbala, Akoko-Edo local government area of Edo state.
Legit.ng gathered that Orbih also urged Oshiomhole to disclose to Nigerians the cause of quarrel with his successor, Governor Godwin Obaseki whom he described as a worthy alumnus of Nigeria premier University of Ibadan (UI).
He said: “They said Governor Godwin Obaseki who graduated from the University of Ibadan has a Certificate. I’m bold to say that I challenge Adams Oshiomhole to show us his primary six certificates.
“He should allow Edo people to decide who governs them…In four years, Godwin Obaseki has done more than what Oshiomhole did in eight years.”
Speaking at the event, Obaseki announced that the construction of the 12.75km Ososo-Okpella road which was abandoned by the previous administration would begin before the end of the year.
The incumbent governor who highlighted his achievements said that he secured the commitment from the chairman of the BOA cement Plc, who promised to undertake the project.
Obaseki also disclosed his government plans to carry out maintenance work at the Ojirami Dam established by the administration of late Brig. General Samuel Ogbemudia (rted) towards addressing acute water supply in the rural areas.
Earlier, the deputy governor of Edo state, Philip Shaibu, urged the youths to shun electoral violence and resist the attempt by maverick politicians who may wish to induce them to undermine the sanctity of the ballot during the election.
He, however, urged the electorate to support the policies of the incumbent governor by voting for PDP and defend their votes in the election.
"Do not accept any arms from them. If anyone wants to lure you to carry arm against yourself, tell that person to call his children abroad and give it to them and fight for them,” he said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, urged the people of Edo state to reelect Governor Obaseki for resisting godfatherism.
It was reported that Wike made the statement during an interview on Channels Television’s sunrise daily show on Tuesday, August 4, in Port Harcourt.
The governor also accused Oshiomhole of enslaving the people of Edo state.
