Adams Oshiomhole who is the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC has been openly criticized over his latest criticism which he had meted on the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

The former APC National Chairman had blasted Peter Obi for failing to tackle insecurity while he had been the Governor of Anambra State.

Addressing a youth conference in Abuja, Oshiomhole had also revealed that the immediate past Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, took some major steps towards tackling insecurity because Obi failed during his tenure.

He recalled how Obiano upon assuming office destroyed houses used by kidnappers in Anambra State.

“Who was the governor when Bakassi developed, and who solved the problem? So, if a man could not solve a security challenge in his own state, which requires courage. How can he convince you that he will solve security challenges all over Nigeria?

“Don’t take it from me, go to Youtube and find out the first six, nine months of Governor Obiano and ask yourself, who was his predecessor? It will tell you it’s Peter.

“If he has solved the security problem, will Obiano be using bulldozers to demolish houses of kidnappers, Bakassi boys, Bakassi girls, bandits?”

Condemning Oshiomhole’s comment, a Civil Society Organisation which has been identified as the Conference of Civil Society for Peace and Good Governance Initiative (CCSFPGG), had described the former Edo State governor as an inconsequential politician who was looking for relevance through Obi’s popularity, after some failed political outings both at national and Edo State levels.

The group stated this in a statement which had been 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.”

The group urged Oshiomhole to apologize to Nigerians over the pains he caused them.
