Gov. Oshiomhole King Of Deception, Says PDP


Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State has described the state governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as a “man who is full of lies and cannot be relied upon to keep promises.”

Speaking with journalists on Monday, State chairman of the party, Chief Dan Orbih, alleged that Governor Oshiomhole has failed to keep to the promises he made to the people of the state, including the one made to the famous stowaway teenager, Daniel Oikhena, and his mother.

Orbih said none of the promises made to Daniel and his mother, Evelyn, in a well publicized event in September has been fulfilled by Governor Oshiomhole, even as he noted the failure to cater for the boy's welfare and upkeep.

“Government did not fulfill the promise made to the family. People, who wanted to help them also stopped because they assumed they were being looked after by government, when it is not true. We also gathered that the mother is now terribly sick.

“We wonder why the Governor has not appointed the boy or her mother as Special Assistant in his usual manner of doling out appointment without requisite qualifications?” Orbih said.

He stated that the state government had repeatedly denied that the state was not indebted but surprisingly set aside N20 billion in the 2014 budget for debt servicing.

He, therefore, challenged the state government to “as a matter of urgency declare the debt profile of Edo State so that the citizens will know what they are in for.”

He also described as “tissues of lies” the sack of 836 teachers in the state, saying “the state government is playing politics with the figure as not less than 3000 teachers were relieved of their jobs without plans to recruit new ones and at a time when the schools are seriously under-staffed.

“As it is usual with his inconsistency in the past where sacked Permanent Secretary and Commissioners are recalled, he should recall the teachers without delay,” Orbih declared.
