The former APC National Chairman, Oshiomhole had reprimand Peter Obi for failing to tackle insecurity while he was the Governor of Anambra State while he was Addressing a youth conference in Abuja.
Criticizing Oshiomhole’s comment, a Civil Society Organisation, Conference of Civil Society for Peace and Good Governance Initiative (CCSFPGG), described Oshiomhole as an insignificant politician looking for relevance through Obi’s popularity.
The group stated this in a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Dr Oshioke Mathew Afegbua and Director of Internal Security Research, Hajiya Maryam Mohammed.
The statement reads: “Oshiomhole is the least politician in Nigeria to denigrate Peter Obi, who has become Nigeria’s most popular choice for the coming general election.
“We have not forgotten that as a governor, Oshiomhole ran Edo like a tin-pot despot on the matrix of empty populism.
“Oshiomhole helped to impose the fading APC administration on Nigerians.
“Under this administration, human lives have been reduced to nothing. The country has become an abattoir where human beings are helplessly being slaughtered at will.”
“We urge Oshiomhole and his party to apologize to Nigerians for the pain they have put them in, instead of talking down on the most popular presidential candidate in the history of Nigeria”.
