Leave Us Alone, Go Face Your Corruption Charges, PDP Tells Oshiomhole


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) directs the embattled National
Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, to
face his pending corruption allegations and imminent sack for alleged
misconduct, instead of seeking a face-saving measure by embarking on
shadow-boxing against the PDP.

The Party says Oshiomhole, who is battling his ouster calls by APC
leaders over allegations of corruption and malfeasance in his handling
of their party, is in no position to cast aspersions or pontificate to
the PDP on our lawful internal activities and relationship with our
elected public officials.

Instead of trying to launder his image by unnecessarily attacking the
PDP, we advice Oshiomhole to redeem his name by submitting himself to
the Department of State Services (DSS) and the Economic and Financial
Crimes Commission (EFCC) to answer huge allegations of corruption as Edo
state governor as well as alleged misconducts as APC Chairman.

The PDP challenges Oshiomhole to speak out on the allegations that he
fled the country at the wake of his reported interrogation by the DSS in
2018 over accusations of corruption.

This is a leader who had accepted that his party and the government it
formed are sanctuaries of corrupt persons, when he stated, at the APC
campaign rally in Edo state last year, that “once you join the APC,
your sins are forgiven”.

Moreover, instead of this fixation on the PDP, Oshiomhole already has
his plate full with the crisis in his home state, Edo, where he is
generally believed to be responsible for political tension by trying to
force himself on the state governor, Governor Godwin Obaseki, as

Oshiomhole needs to concentrate on the crisis rocking his party as well
as the Presidency where the members of the cabal are at daggers drawn
over the sharing of positions as “booty” of a rigged election.
