PDP died in sin and it cannot resurrect - Oshiomhole

Former governor of Edo state, Adams Oshiomhole has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will not return to power in 2019 as Nigerians will not want to return to the period of looting.

Vanguard reports that the former governor spoke at the mega rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Benin-City.

Matthew Iduoriyekemwen who is a governorship aspirant of the PDP in the state had led a mass defection to the APC and Oshiomhole described it as a sign of things to come.

He accused the PDP of committing so many atrocities in their administration and claimed Nigerians are not ready to vote for them.

He said: ¨I know that the PDP leaders will not sleep today. APC represents the forces of life. The Bible said he or she who dies in sin will never resurrect. I said it before, PDP died in sin and it cannot resurrect".

"That is why when I read sponsored write ups, I say that, even in our confusion, our imperfection, our moment of deep reflection, there can be no argument that there is no bringing back the armed robbers of yesteryears. No man or woman will allow thieves come to his house. PDP cannot come back in 2019. Nigerians are not fools; they will not be swayed by hired writers. If not for our President today, there would have been no Nigeria.

"The money voted for the police, they put it in their pockets. The money earmarked to fight Boko Haram, they put in their pockets. They money voted for security, they used to secure their pockets. All of a sudden, if you produced two barrels of crude, one barrel was missing. I want to assure you, we are building a party that is founded on the principle of social democracy. The whole idea is to transfer power to the people and remember, in 2006, we started with the slogan, 'Let the people lead'. And once the people began to lead, the godfathers began to collapse. How can the elephant's leg be missing in a pot of soup they did not take into the kitchen?

"When the time comes, we will reopen yesteryears to be able to appreciate today so that we can see where we are going to tomorrow. I want to assure you that with what the governor is doing in Edo, sustaining the tradition of infrastructural development, to attract investors to the state, we are on the right path."

Meanwhile, a billionaire businessman and founder of Aiteo group Benedict Peters declared that he did not fund any coalition headed by Obasanjo.

Punch reports that Peters made this known in a statement released on Friday night, January 26.

The stamen read: ''For the record, I wish to state, categorically and unequivocally, that I am not a financier of the said organisation or any socio-political partisan association or political party in Nigeria or anywhere else in the world.
