PDP Is “Evil”-Former PDP Governor

Mr. Osunbor

Former governor of Edo, Oserheimen Osunbor, said he was declared disloyal by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) because he refused to share the state’s resources to party leaders.

Mr. Osunbor, who defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the 2015 general elections, said this at APC’s campaign rally in Iruekpen, Esan West Local Government Area, for the Sept. 10 governorship election in the state.

He described the PDP as an “evil party”, whose interest was not the development of the state, but to share the resources among party leaders.

He said such mentality of the party was reason for the defection of prominent sons and daughters of the state to the APC, adding that PDP was a “sinking ship”.

“Evil people have hijacked the PDP; the party is a sinking ship, which is why I have told my people to act like the former president, Obasanjo, by tearing their PDP membership cards.

“I have told them to join the party that is interested in their welfare and the overall development of the state.

“PDP has no interest in what becomes of the state and the people, but their pockets.

“This was why they said I was not loyal because I refused to share the money meant to develop the state while I was the governor. That was why they started fighting me.

“The PDP, whether at the local, state or federal level can’t do anything for us, it is only the APC that can make us a proud people through development,” Mr. Osunbor said.

Addressing the rally, the APC governorship candidate, Godwin Obaseki, said the Edo people, having produced great sons and daughters in various sectors of the polity, deserved the best.

He said he was in the best position to govern and offer the people the best, being part of Oshiomhole’s success story.

Mr. Obaseki promised to not only continue with the laudable projects of the Adams Oshiomhole government, but to take it to another level through job creation and human empowerment.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN reports that 70 members of the PDP defected to the APC at the rally. (NAN)

Osunbor says PDP hated my anti-corruption stance as Edo governor

A former governor of Edo State, Prof. Osarhiemien Osunbor, on Tuesday explained that some leaders of his former party, the Peoples Democratic Party, fought him while he was in power due to his alleged refusal to misappropriate state resources.

Osunbor, who is currently a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, said this during a political rally of the governorship candidate of the APC, Godwin Obaseki, at Iruekpen, Esan West Local Government Area of the state.

The professor of Law said that the PDP was not interested in developing the state but in the interest of its members, alleging that the party had been hijacked by “evil” people.

Osunbor explained, “The PDP is not interested in the development of the state, rather they enjoy sharing the resources of the state by the party leaders. That is why you see our sons and daughters abandoning the sinking ship to the APC.

“Evil people have hijacked the PDP; the party is a sinking ship, which is why I have told my people to act like the former President (Olusegun) Obasanjo, by tearing their PDP membership cards.

“I have told them to join the party that is interested in their welfare and the overall development of the state. The PDP have no interest in what becomes of the state and the people but their pockets.”

The former chairman of the Law Reform Commission also said that he had been branded as a disloyal party man.

He said, “This was why they said I was not loyal because I refused to share the money meant to develop the state while I was the governor.

“That was why they started fighting me. The PDP, whether at the local, state and federal level, cannot do anything for us; it is only the APC that can make us a proud people through development.”
