The former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has said the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, cannot address the country’s security challenges as he couldn’t fix same challenge when he was Anambra State governor.
Oshiomhole said Obi couldn’t handle the dreaded gang, known as the Bakassi Boys, during his tenure as governor in Anambra State,
The former Edo State governor stated this on Sunday at the APC progressive young leaders summit in Abuja.
Recall that the Bakassi Boys was a vigilante group accused of extrajudicial killings in the South East.
Oshiomhole said: “For those of you who are social media warriors, there are issues here that you need to speak to. Go to Google and look at the first six months of governor Obaino’s administration in Anambra state.
“What you will find on YouTube is governor Obaino using bulldozers to demolish the houses of kidnappers and those who were involved in what they called Bakassi boys or even girls.
“Who was the governor when Bakassi developed in Anambra and who solved the problem? So, if a man couldn’t fix a security challenge in his own state which requires courage, how can he convince that he would fix the security challenge all over Nigeria?
“Don’t take it from me. Go to YouTube and find out about the first six months of governor Obaino and find out who was his predecessor.
“If the [predecessor] had solved the problem, would Obaino be using bulldozers to demolish people’s houses, houses of kidnappers and Bakassi boys? So, when they say ‘I will fix Nigeria’, did you fix your state?”
