Adams Oshiomhole, All Progressives Congress,APC, national chairman has described the defection of Godswill Akpabio to the party as uncommon. Oshiomhole, who lambasted the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for robbing the people for 16 years, asked the people not to be deceived.
The former Edo state governor said this during the APC rally at Ikot Ekpene, in Awkward Ibom on Wednesday.
It would be interesting to note that Akpabio served as governor under the People’s Democratic Party for 8 years. This has prompted Nigerians to throw all sorts of jabs at the APC national chairman.
They argued that it was illogical for Oshiomhole to accuse the PDP of being thieves, while hailing Akpabio, who was a governor there for 8 solid years.
Oshiomhole had said during the rally:
“Please don’t be deceived. These are very tempting moments. Nigerians will know the difference between party A and party B.
“I ask you, if a seasoned notorious armed robber who has been robbing you for 16 years; they tripled the robbery, they digitised the robbery… When you kick them out of office, they sponsor confusion here and there.
“But the people are saying no matter how you sponsor, we can see behind the facts.”
