Adams Oshiomhole, the former national chairman of the ruling APC, has offered his opinion regarding the crisis rocking the PDP
A former national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole said the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar does not have the moral justification to preach unity in Nigeria. Oshiomole made this assertion while speaking in an interview with Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday, November 30.
He said, “You (Atiku) can’t manage your household, you are a serial divorcee and you want to preach unity and family to me?”
According to the former governor of Edo state, Atiku lacks character and consistency having moved from the PDP to the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), back to the PDP and to the APC and finally to the PDP since 1999, Vanguard report added. “For Atiku, if he is not the candidate, he takes a flight to Dubai. But you are talking of someone who upon leaving office, supported his wife rather than himself, talk of selfless service and gender equality,” he said.
Oshiomhole also said Atiku cannot be trusted as echoed by aggrieved PDP governors known as the G5 or the Integrity Group.
“PDP governors said we can’t trust him, every agreement we made with him, he broke it; he is a serial betrayer of agreements,” he added. PDP crisis: Atiku set to make tough decision, to adopt powerful politician as southwest leader As the crises facing the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rages on, the party’s presidential candidate is said to have arrived at a far-reaching decision over the party leadership in the southwest region.
Atiku may have resolved to adopt the new governor of Osun, Ademola Adeleke, as the southwest leader of the party. Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde, is currently the party leader in the region, but Atiku, for some time now, has been in a running battle with the G5 governors, which has the former in its ranks.
