Vote Buying: Jonathan Blasts Oshiomhole Over Allegations


Immediate past Nigeria’s President, Goodluck Jonathan has berated All Progressives Congress, APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole for his recent claim on a live television programme that the incidence of vote buying started during the administration of the ex-President. Jonathan in response via a statement signed by his media aide, Ikechukwu Eze on Wednesday, questioned Oshiomhole’s state of mind even as he quoted the former Edo state governor for lauding his democratic credentials when he won his reelection bid a few years ago on the platform of an opposition party.

The statement read in part that Oshiomhole who is currently operating under tremendous stress in the bid to steady the already floundering ship of his administration as the new leader of his party, may have got himself entangled in a voyage of tactless desperation.

The former President counselled the Muhammadu Buhari administration to focus on delivering democratic dividends to the people, saying ,a Government that continues to blame its predecessor rather than show its scorecard, less than one year to the end of its four-year tenure, is only giving the impression that it is already at its wit’s end.
