Leave us alone, face your corruption charges, PDP advises Oshiomhole

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has counseled the embattled National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, to face his pending corruption allegations and imminent sack for alleged misconduct, instead of seeking a face-saving measure by embarking on shadow-boxing against the PDP.

The opposition party, via its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said that Oshiomhole, who is battling his ouster calls by APC leaders over allegations of corruption and malfeasance in his handling of their party, was in no position to cast aspersions or pontificate to the PDP on its lawful internal activities and relationship with PDP elected public officials.
Besides, PDP advised Oshiomhole: “Instead of trying to launder your image by unnecessarily attacking the PDP, we advice you to redeem your name by submitting yourself to the Department of State Services (DSS) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to answer huge allegations of corruption as Edo State governor as well as alleged misconducts as APC chairman.”
The PDP also challenged Oshiomhole to speak out on the allegations that he fled the country at the wake of his reported interrogation by the DSS in 2018 over accusations of corruption.
“This is a leader who had accepted that his party and the government it formed are sanctuaries of corrupt persons, when he stated at the APC campaign rally in Edo State last year that “once you join the APC, your sins are forgiven,”’ PDP said. PDP pointed out that Oshiomhole already has
his plate full with the crises in his home state, Edo, where he is generally believed to be responsible for political tension by trying to force himself on the state governor, Governor Godwin Obaseki, as
godfather.

PDP however advised Oshiomhole to concentrate on the crises rocking his party as well as the Presidency where the members of the cabal are at daggers drawn over the sharing of positions as “booty” of a rigged election.
