The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has taken swipe at the Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, for labelling members of the party as “rogues,” The party described, Oshiomhole as an ingrate who got to power by the grace of PDP’s magnanimity which he now vilifies. Oshiomhole had during a chat with journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, said he reported to President Goodluck Jonathan the activities of PDP politicians whom he referred to as rogues and corrupt.
However, in a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh, in Abuja yesterday, PDP said: “First is that Oshiomhole is governor primarily because of the unflinching commitment of the PDP to the rule of law and credible elections. “No amount of falsehood by the ACN can obliterate this. Oshiomhole therefore carries a huge moral burden when as the largest beneficiary of these democratic values guaranteed by the PDP-led federal government, he went ahead without scruples to deny his people the opportunity to elect their leaders.
The statement also said it is Oshiomhole’s Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) that is the real brood of rogues as their actions in the conduct of local government elections in Lagos, Ogun and now Edo clearly of their choice.”
