Oshiomhole: PDP deceived Igbo for 16 years

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole on Friday accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)  of deceiving the people of the five Southeast States for the 16years it held sway at the Aso Rock Villa.

Oshiomhole, citing the inability of the PDP to fix Southeast roads during its years in office, said most of the same highways have now been made motorable by President Muhammadu Buhari in only three and a half years.

Speaking in Umuahia at the flag off campaign of the party’s governorship candidate in the state,Dr. Uche Ogah, the APC chair said: “The Igbo made a mistake in 2015, they should not make the same mistake twice.

“In 2019 on the 16th of February, everybody should compare the darkness of 16years and the light that they are beginning to see under President Buhari under two and a  half years. The choice will be yours to make.

“You must elect all the senatorial and House of Representatives candidates

 “The road networks in the Southeast was nothing to write home about in the 16years of PDP in the country.

“The more the PDP broke the ground for the second Niger Bridge, the more bridge became weaker.

“But Muhammadu Buhari, without changing his name to Azikiwe, is doing great things in the construction of the second Niger Bridge.

“Under the PDP, PDP farmers started growing cassava on the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway. Today, President Muhammadu Buhari, without changing his name to Azikiwe or Ebele, is rebuilding that road. Many days for the liars, 2019 for the man of truth.”

He urged Abians to vote out incumbent Governor Okezie Ikpeazu and replace him with Ogah, saying Ikpeazu has failed workers in the state by not utilizing the Paris Club refunds to pay their salary arrears.

He said: “as a former president of the NLC, I know that the primary purpose of government is the welfare of citizens. And you cannot lay claim to public welfare when you are treating your employees as slaves.

“The incumbent governor of the PDP collected Paris fund refund and President Buhari told him to go and pay my people in Abia State.

“Ikpeazu, how do you sleep when your workers are not being paid? He collected the Paris fund refund twice and ended up diverting the funds.

“We are here to win. When Uche Ogah wins, he is going to provide progressive governance. That is why we are in business. We want to measure how much impact that we have made in the lives of the people.”

Oshiomhole presented Ogah, his running mate,Mr. Martin Azubuike and the APC senatorial candidates former governor of the  State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, Senator Nkechi Nwaogu, and Sir Marc Wabara for Abia North, Abia Central and Abia South senatorial Districts respectively to the people.

Also speaking, Dr. Uzor-Kalu urged Abia people to vote out PDP and enthrone a committed government.

He said: “when I was Governor,  salaries were paid promptly. There was free education. I built this stadium. Today our university is dead. T A Orji wasted eight years and left Abia this way. We will make a change.

“We will elect Buhari with 70 percent votes. We will elect Ogah. He is a businessman like me. We will pay salaries and pensions. No new roads in Aba and Umuahia 12 years after I left. Today no road leads to Abia because of people like Ikpeazu.”
