PDP has destroyed Nigeria’s economy — Oshiomhole

Adams Oshiomhole

Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has said the Peoples Democratic Party-led Federal Government has destroyed the nation’s economy.

Speaking to a coalition of women from across the 18 local government areas of the state, led by Evelyn Igbafe, who paid him a solidarity visit, Tuesday, Mr. Oshiomhole said, “PDP has mismanaged the economy. You can all see that you need about N220 now to buy $1. When PDP took over power in 1999, $1 was between N60 and N65.

“They have destroyed the economy. After 16 years PDP cannot give light to Edo people and upon the darkness, they are using their might to collect what they call fixed charges from very poor people and because there is no light, the woman that has to grind pepper has to buy a generator; because there is no light, the woman that grinds cassava has to buy a generator; because there is no light, the woman who has to sell articles at night has to buy a generator.

Mr. Oshiomhole said, “I like what the Benin leaders are saying. We cannot say this is what we have gained from the PDP and because we are working, they are very afraid. When I see the PDP Chairman of the State wearing multiple colours and talking and spend all his time abusing Oshiomhole, but fails to spend some minutes to say what the PDP has done in 10 years, I laugh.

“When you are going now, pass through the Central Hospital to see the beautiful work that is being done there. This is what is giving the PDP sleepless nights because all the evil plans they had against that hospital did not work. Before APC came, PDP asked students to pay school fees. We have stopped all of that. If you have two three children in school and you do not pay school fees for any of them, is that not extra savings? Under PDP, they were paying for schools that didn’t have roofs and chairs.”

“There are still many things to be done because the damages done by PDP in ten years cannot be repaired in six years. I want to promise you that we will continue to do our best.”

Earlier, the leader of the women coalition, Evelyn Igbafe, said they were in Government House to thank the governor for the re-appointment of a traditional ruler, Ehioze Erediauwa, as a member of Edo State Oil and Gas Producing Areas Development Commission, and assured the governor of their continued support always.

“We have come to encourage you that you should continue with your good works in Edo State, we appreciate your government and we want APC to continue the good work and we to assure you that APC is carry go,” she said.
