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)

      PDP is the party of evil people that is why PDP is igbo and igbo is the PDP.they loves and encourages corruption with passion

        I guess the man that wants to die as PDP Chairman (Sheriff) is from Awka. Nigeria we hail thee

        A great pity for you!

  • chuck

    Useless man. what was your achievement to the state during your tenure?
    Something is wrong with these unprincipled Nigerian politicians

    • Pat

      When one’s principle is “not sharing state money to individuals” he has become unprincipled. Only God can deliver this country.

      • cajaegbu

        The man was a total failure as the Governor of Edo State! He should be hiding his head in shame! Such people are actually liabilities to APC!
        I can only compare him to another failed Governor (Mbadinuju of Anambra) who incidentally has also found refuge in APC!
        We know of Governors who fought the god fathers in PDP,.and still have legacies to show case.
        Please, let failures spare us their tales by the moon light!

        • Drama-King

          How long did he last as a governor? Don’t know why some people cannot accept the truth and move on.

          • Fine Boy

            When Oshiomole got into office after Osunbor was outed, he said Osunbor had looted the state’s treasury, and was going to take measures to get the funds back.

            In Nigeria politics, the moment u are in an opposition party then you could never do anything right and u are a looter.
            By the moment you switch to the other party u become a saint and you say all sort of evil abt ur previous party.
            Am amazed how people still fall for the cheap words and lies of Nigerian politicians both under pdp and APC.

            Stop supporting parties, (they are all the same) , instead support individuals

        • Peter_Edo

          i nor understand una oh, this man was governor for less than 2 years, and most of the time he was out there fighting to keep his seat. and he is right, we all heard it, Anenih wanted him to share state resources with the elders and he said NO! we knew that was the end for him. Unfortunately he was weak… Anenih wanted oshiomole to do the same and he said NO and went ahead to humiliate anenih a ti anini!

          • Fine Boy

            How could Anenih, a pdp man ask Oshiomole an APC member to share state funds with him

          • Peter_Edo

            go and read the history…

      • share Idea

        Did you ask yourself the accusation APC have been laying against PDP in Edo state – which included the period the man ruled Edo. Nigeria we hail thee

  • Ayo Aiyelabola

    Another Osun state scenario is playing out in Edo. In Osun Oyinlola stood side by side with Aregbesola, both as APC members to campaign for the last gubernatorial election in that state. Today, in Edo Osumbor is standing side by side by his former traducer, Oshiomole, in the same party – APC – to campaign for Obaseki. Physics says that water will always find its own level. Best of luck.

  • bjay

    Professor Osunbor is saying the truth,pdp is devil party.

    • share Idea

      I was thinking that PDP is not an individual rather a political party that is made of humans. If my assertion is correct, does it mean that the new member of APC from PDP is (was) evil? if so, does APC wants to share in his evil?

      It is strange why Saint APC likes to dine with Evil (ex PDP member). Nigeria we hail thee

      • Dan

        Mark you my brother; he said he refused to share money among party leaders. That exonerates him from being “evil” and the reason for his defection to APC.

        • Suleiman

          He said, ko? Have you verified it? And the APC is the party of the SAINTS, right? May God deliver your misery soul from hell! The last time I checked, there was more stealing going on now than during the PDP era. Where is all the money purported to have been recovered. Show us the bank statement stating that the money is there! And the budget padding is saintly right? And why hasn’t the president disclosed how much has been collected. SO lying and deceiving is not corruption right? If this government is not corrupt why are all its activities and spending shrouded in in secrecy? Please get a life for yourself and stop building hope on straw! This government is one of the most corrupt in the history of the country. Nepotism, tribalism, religious bigotry and outright lying has become the order

        • share Idea

          Why did he not defect when he was governor? Believe him and you will believe anything. lol

        • Fine Boy

          So anybody can tell u anything and u will believe .
          . He left to APC cos pdp lost grounds, and he wants to remain relevant and he switched over to the resigning party, period

  • favourtalk

    Everybody know quite well that the party is a disgrace and dangeriously bad

  • Wilfred Bankole Ademokun

    Poverty Development Party [P.D.P.], has nothing to offer to the good citizens of EDO STATE, the history is there for the people to judge the political party that brought development to the people of EDO STATE. If Chief. Anthony Enahoro is alive, P.D.P will never win a single sit in EDO STATE. VOTE WISELY, VOTE A.P.C. ELERIN FOR CONTINUITY.

    • Suleiman

      AND OSHIOMOLE DID NOT STEAL? WHAT ABOUT THE RECENTLY EXPOSED THIEVERY OF THE LOUSIEST GOVERNOR IN NIGERIA NAMED ADAMS OSHIOMOLE? ASK YOURSELF, FOR THE OVER SO-CALLED SIXTEEN YEARS OF PDP RULE WERE PEOPLE AS HUNGRY AS THEY ARE TODAY? CRUDE OIL SALES AT UNDER $50 PB AND WE ARE BUYING FUEL AT N145. DURING JONATHAN IT SOLD AT OVER $100 AND WE BOUGHT FUEL AT N87! WHY ARE PEOPLE SCAVENGING TODAY, YES, PEOPLE N EDO STATE ARE SELLING THEIR CHILDREN FOR A CUP OF GARI AND YOU STILL BELIEVE THE APC IS DOING A GOOD JOB? A LIE TOLD MANY TIMES BECOMES A TRUTH AND THESE ARE THE LIES WE ARE HEARING FROM APC EVERYDAY. THESE LIES ARE BECOMING TRUTH IN THE EARS OF ILLITERATES LIKE YOU. A LIE IS A LIE AND CAN NEVER BE TRUE FOR ME.

      • St

        Even in Lagos state people are selling their children for 500 to be raped; those are wicked and failed parents. It’s what goes with poverty, now that’s a Nigerian factor for now. Oshiomhole changed Edo state, though from me a pass but try to compare that state to the administration of Lucky Igbinedion! Then you will get a very clear picture of Development in that state

    • Fine Boy

      What has the party got to do with the individual. An individual has corrupt tendencies not cos he is in APC or pdp . Vote for individuals and not party.
      . So if Obaseki was in pdp, then automatically he is a bad person and corrupt.?

      There is not difference btw APC and pdp, it’s just a platform whereby individuals can stand and be voted for.

      • Comfortkay

        Bros Fine Boy please form a new political party

      • Wilfred Bankole Ademokun

        POVERTY DEVELOPMENT PARTY [P.D.P.] IS FULL OF CON MEN AND DORO BANDIT, IT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO TRUST THESE CONFIDENCE MEN.
