Jonathan Shares ‘Facts That Prove Oshiomhole’s Mental Imbalance’
Former President Goodluck Jonathan has shared a post that claims the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, is mentally unstable.
The post shared on Friday on his Facebook page was actually written by his aide when he was president, Mr Remo Omokri, and it was entitled 'Facts That Prove Oshiomhole's Mental Imbalance’.
It was a sign of his endorsement for everything that was contained in the write up where Mr Omokri responded to an earlier statement by the Chairman of the APC.
He said his "attention has been drawn to a statement by the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, in which he accused former President Goodluck Jonathan of budgeting 5 billion Naira to rig the Edo State gubernatorial elections which held on July 14, 2012".
Jonathan's former aide had also said the write up was to present facts and dates that Mr Oshiomhole's statement was further proof that he was "a mentally unbalanced man who suffers from multiple personality syndrome".
"The Edo gubernatorial election that Mr Oshiomhole referred to held on Saturday, July 14, 2012.
"The very next day, the Independent National Electoral Commission declared Mr Oshiomhole as the winner of the election. After his victory was declared, Mr Oshiomhole said as follows: “I am glad that Mr President (Jonathan) kept to his words of assurance that there will be no thuggery, hooliganism and violence during the Edo Governorship election.
"He is indeed a statesman, a man of honour, because there was adequate and effective presence of security agents on ground. I am impressed.
"What the Edo election has confirmed is that when the President and Commander-in-Chief put the country first and he conducts himself as a statesman not just as a party leader, credible elections are possible".
"I urge Nigerians to Google the above statement by Mr Oshiomhole to ensure I am not misquoting him," he stressed.
Mr Omokri said Oshiomhole made the above comment on while addressing journalists after the election. It was documented in video, he says.
"Now, the same man who uttered those words is saying a completely different thing today. Is this not evidence of multiple personalities?
"This double talk and flip-flopping is a pattern with Adams Oshiomhole and evidence abound on this.
"For example, on July 20, 2018, Adams Oshiomhole said: “Governor Ortom is not going anywhere, he is a very prominent member of our party, and we appreciate his leadership in Benue".
"He further said of Governor Ortom as follows “He is a man of honour and he knows that once you move one step forward, you will want to take the second step to consolidate the first step”.
"Then only a week later, on July 28, 2018, Mr Oshiomhole made a 180 degree about turn and said “I am relieved as national chairman, and I believe that the leadership of the party in Benue is also relieved that Ortom has left the party and returned to the club he belongs".
"Mr Oshiomhole also said Governor Ortom’s exit from the APC “is good riddance to bad rubbish”.
"How could Ortom be “a man of honour” in Mr Oshiomhole’s eye one week and be “rubbish” the next week?" Omokri questioned.
He further said the statement was accessible online.
On recent defections in the National Assembly, Jonathan's former aid said "Nigerians will recall that Mr Oshiomhole met with various legislators in the National Assembly to persuade them not to defect from the APC, but after they defected, he said he “I will not miss sleep for one minute” over the defections.
"Then again, on August 10, 2018, Adams Oshiomhole said “I have confidence in Speaker Yakubu Dogara” only for the APC under Oshiomhole to officially release a statement on Thursday, September 14, 2018, saying Yakubu Dogara “has no electoral value”.
"Yet, the same Yakubu Dogara delivered his LGA to the Peoples Democratic Party only a month ago.
"With the above, should any Nigerian doubt that we have a mentally unbalanced man in charge of the All Progressives Congress?
"To buttress this point, it will be recalled that Oshiomhole said in his statement about ex President Jonathan as follows:
“To be propelled from the dark anonymity of a mere local government councillor in the creeks of the Niger Delta to the marbled vaults of presidential power in Abuja must appeal to those who believe in luck".
"Former President Goodluck Jonathan has NEVER been a Local Government Councillor Or Chairman or even worked in any capacity in any LGA anywhere in Nigeria. It only shows the very low level of Mr Oshiomhole’s mental capacity when he makes such unsubstantiated allegations.
"Dr Jonathan was an academic in the Ivory Tower, then a public servant at the Oil Mineral Producing Areas Development Commission (OMPADEC) and then became a Deputy Governor, then a Governor, Vice President, acting President and then President.
"If Mr Oshiomhole cannot get his fact right about a man who was President of Nigeria for five years and whose biography is a public document, can anybody be surprised that the APC is collapsing under Mr Oshiomhole’s watch? Mr Omokri further questioned.
