2019: Oshiomhole Threatens Obasanjo With Jail
It is no longer news that former president Olusegun Obasanjo and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole do not tread the same path, due to political affiliations.
But Oshiomhole took their differences to a whole new level on Friday when he threatened the former president with jail.
He said former the ex-president would not escape prosecution if President Muhammadu Buhari decides to probe the power sector.
The former governor of Edo State spoke in Jos during the opening of Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong’s reelection campaign at the Rwang Pam Stadium.
He said: “Obasanjo said in 1999 that if he was elected President with his Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, he would fix the power sector in six months and that there would be electricity supply all over Nigeria. Many years later, we realised what he meant.
“He and his Vice-President spent $16 billion on power sector, after eight years there was more darkness in Nigeria than when they assumed office. So when President Muhammadu Buhari took over in 2015, he asked a question: where is the power? If Mr President pursues the answer to that question to its logical conclusion, he must put Obasanjo on trial.”
Oshiomhole expressed regrets that those he said supervised the collapse of the power sector and other sectors of the economy had regrouped to return to power.
