Adams Oshiomole, fired back at former president Jonathan, who in a statement released by his media aide, Ikechuwku Eze, said Oshiomole is under enormous stress and in a fragile psychological state. Jonathan said in reaction to Oshiomole’s claim that vote buying during an election, started in his administration. (Read here)
In a statement released by his chief Press Secretary, Simon Ebegbulem, Oshiomole said Jonathan is a zoologist from the swamps of Otueke who ran a disastrous presidency.
“If the allegation that the APC national chairman is having psychological issues with the even more specific reference to “multiple personality syndrome,” came from a doctor of human medicine with specialisation in psychology, it could debatably enjoy some merit. But Jonathan is a zoologist from the swamps of Otuoke. This is clearly veering from his turf and unworthy of further debate. Probably still retaining some remnant of conscience after a disastrous presidency, he was stung when APC national chairman recently correctly accused him specifically and his party of birthing vote-buying and encouraging electoral fraud in Nigeria. After unseemly name-calling, the former President without even addressing the core points raised by Oshiomhole felt the easier path was to counter-accuse the APC leader with exactly the same damning allegation.” Ebegbulem said
The media aide to Oshiomole insisted that the Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, initiated vote buying in 2015 elections. He alleged that during the elections in Edo state, the former president injected billions of naira as well as other states of the nation to secure votes for his second term bid which he lost to President Buhari.
