The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress , Mr Adams Oshiomhole , on Friday said former President Olusegun Obasanjo would not escape prosecution if President Muhammadu Buhari decides to probe the power sector .
The former governor of Edo State spoke in Jos during the opening of Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong ’ s reelection campaign at the Rwang Pam Stadium .
He said , “ Obasanjo said in 1999 that if he was elected President with his Vice -President , Atiku Abubakar, he would fix the power sector in six months and that there would be electricity supply all over Nigeria . Many years later, we realised what he meant .
“ He and his Vice – President spent $ 16 bn on power sector , after eight years there was more darkness in Nigeria than when they assumed office . So when President Muhammadu Buhari took over in 2015 , he asked a question : where is the power ? If Mr President pursues the answer to that question to its logical conclusion , he must put Obasanjo on trial . ”
Oshiomhole expressed regrets that those he said supervised the collapse of the power sector and other sectors of the economy had regrouped to return to power .
He urged Nigerians to reject them in the forthcoming general elections to enable the country to move forward .
He said , “ Atiku is from the customs and ( Peter ) Obi is a trader . Their ticket is part of Obasanjo ’ s PDP . They can never change their colours . Already , Atiku has said he would sell the NNPC if elected . If given the chance , I ’ m sure he would sell the country . So , Nigerians should not vote them during the next election . ”
Oshiomhole , who presented the APC ’ s flag to Lalong commended his administration ’ s performance in the last three and half years , especially for restoring peace to the state .
He urged the people to support his re -election bid .
Also speaking on the occasion, the Director – General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation and former governor of Rivers State , Mr Rotimi Amaechi , said Buhari meant well for the country .
Lalong expressed confidence that the APC would win all elections in the state and at the national level .
In an obvious reference to the PDP governorship candidate , Jeremiah Useni , the governor said , “ I was told that I was contesting an election with somebody . I looked at my left and right, and I said I was looking for the man . It turned out that I am contesting an election against a boy. Can we contest an election with a boy and expect to lose ? It means that the election is finished . ”
