What Oshiomole said abour Buhari's Administration @ Daura


Former governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole has taken a swipe at the critics of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole, made the description on Thursday while speaking at the party’s mega rally at Kangiwa Square, in Daura, the hometown of President Buhari on Thursday.

Mr Oshiomhole, a former governor of Edo State, said saboteurs where bent on promoting lies to resist the change being introduced by the Buhari-led administration aimed at alleviating the plights of Nigerians.

For critics he said their handiwork was to misguide Nigerians so that things would continue the way they were during the previous administration when “looting was in vogue in Nigeria.”

“Buhari’s critics are saboteurs and thieves of a government that is working hard to clean the Augean stable of the mess created by the previous administration in Nigeria,” Oshiomhole said.
“Those critics are making it difficult for Nigerians to see the legacy the President is leaving behind for them under this administration,” he added.

The APC national chairman said Buhari’s programmes and policies were geared towards bringing the country out of the political, social and economic morass it was enmeshed in during PDP 16 years of misrule.

He argued that the critics who claimed that Buhari administration had failed were merely promoting the kind of propaganda that would help foster their own political interest ahead of 2019 general elections, which he said they would fail woefully.

Oshiomhole reiterated that Buhari had done a lot to save the Nigerian economy, which was tottering towards an eclipse, thereby making it easy for Nigerians to have access to soft loans and other resources they need in their small and medium scale enterprises as well as farming.

Addressing APC stalwarts at the rally, the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, urged the people to cast their votes for the APC candidates in order for the party to maintain it majority at the Senate.
“You know that Katsina state and even this particularly constituency is the constituency of Mr. President, so every vote for Hon. Ahmed Baba Kaita is the vote for Mr. President.

“We must have a majority in the senate because politics is about numbers. So we must make sure that we vote him because we want to maintain our majority,” Osinbajo said.

Latest Transfer: Liverpool Sign Stoke Forward Xherdan Shaqiri After Triggering Release Clause

The 26-year-old was Stoke’s top scorer last season with eight goals as they were relegated from the Premier League.

He joined the Potters from Inter Milan in August 2015 for a club record fee of £12m.
Shaqiri scored against Serbia at the World Cup as Switzerland reached the last 16, where they lost to Sweden.

In June, he was reported as saying he wanted to leave Stoke and sign for a Premier League club.
Liverpool have already strengthened their squad this summer with the £39m signing of Monaco midfielder Fabinho, and the arrival of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig.

Shaqiri, who will wear the number 23 shirt, was linked with a move to Anfield in 2014 but Bayern Munich reportedly blocked the transfer.

“As a player you always want to be on the biggest stage in football,” he said.
“A few years ago I wanted to come too but it didn’t happen. I’m really happy that now I’m finally here. I want to improve myself too, I want to be with the best and I want to win titles.

“It’s a huge club with big history, big players and a fantastic coach. So I’m really glad and happy to be here.”
Shaqiri won the Champions League with Bayern in 2013, and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said: “I think the English phrase to explain the decision to sign Xherdan is a ‘no-brainer’.

“I know him well from his time in Switzerland and especially Germany – I have been a long-time admirer. But the added bonus now is that he knows the Premier League and what it takes to perform in this uniquely intense environment.

“He has speed and ability, has the right amount of arrogance on the football pitch, real bravery to want the ball and influence things.

“He is someone who makes a big difference to the squad and team, because he can fit in so many positions in our system.”
