…Accept your serial defeat, get over your obsession with Edo govt treasury, PDP slams Oshiomhole, hireling
…Words of John Mayaki not credible, he is a self confessed liar
The Edo State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and his hired gun, John Mayaki, to accept the serial defeat suffered in the hands of Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki and stop their infantile and unwarranted attacks on the governor and his administration.
The State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chris Osa Nehikhare, in a statement, said Oshiomhole’s latest swipe at the governor over an alleged N18bn loan request, delivered through Oshiomhole’s media hireling, Mayaki, demonstrated an acute obsession with propagation of falsehood, lies and alternative facts to curry public sympathy after a most humiliating defeat at the polls.
According to Nehikhare, “It is quite unfortunate that we are compelled to once again attend to the rantings from the camp of the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, who has grown fond of Edo State Government treasury and cannot fathom to bear the pain that he would never have access to the till, with which the governor has continued to pursue developmental projects for the progress and advancement of the state.
“Oshiomhole has registered his frustration once again through the tirade of John Mayaki, who has admitted that his write-ups are “fatally wrong and unable to pass credibility check” and that he allows his political interest and not his judgement as a professional journalist guide him! It is obvious that Mayaki is vigorously trying to rescue his obviously failing journalism career. Shame that his journalism has been reduced to only one story, which is the propagation of lies against the Governor. We forgave him before, doesn’t mean we will tolerate his lies!
On the allegations paraded by Oshiomhole through his lackey, Nehikhare dismissed the claims, stating that the Governor is not profligate like Oshiomhole.
He added that the lack of critical thinking in the camp of Oshiomhole was telling with the inconsistencies in the allegations, as it was claimed that the governor was taking the loan with the plan to pay back with the state’s 13 percent crude oil derivation credits, but in the same line of thought, the writer alleged that there was no clear repayment plan.
Nehikhare said: “The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, is not profligate like Oshiomhole and this much is evident from the governor’s leadership style as well as the manner in which he has managed the state’s resources to the admiration of local and foreign partners, who continue to commend the prudent, transparent and judicious allocation of resource in pursuit of sustainable development and economic advancement in the state.”
“There is no denying that Edo people are tired of the lies and falsehoods propagated by Oshiomhole and his minions. It’s high time they embrace the Resetting Agenda of the Governor Obaseki and the PDP!
“Edo must move forward ! “ he concluded
