A youth group based in northern Nigeria has warned Edo state Governor , Adams Oshiomhole against unguarded utterances against the Jonathan administration.
Arewa Youth Parliament ,AYP described as unacceptable the manner
Governor Oshiomhole has turned an ’emergency critic’ of former president Jonathan’s administration .
The group urged President Muhammadu Buhari to call him to order immediately .
Speaking with a group of journalists during a press conference held at his office , Kawo , Kaduna today, the Kaduna State Chairman of the group, Ibrahim Garba Rigachikun said it was worrisome that Oshiomhole ,who was one of the friends and close confidants of Jonathan could eventually turn against him.
He said the Edo governor still sees himself in campaign mode, or probably having the hangover of labour unionism when he held sway as NLC President.
He described as a ‘misadventure’, Oshiomhole’s attempt to deny the former President the peace that comes with retirement.
According to Garba, Governor Oshiomhole first started with a Tale by Moonlight, when he claimed that a certain US official told him that the officials of the Jonathan administration were involved in large scale financial scandal . Then, he said, a rebuttal by the US officials sent Governor Oshiomhole’s tale to the dustbin of history .
Garba said Governor Oshiomhole then went on to grant an interview to a weekend newspaper, where he said Nigerians would stone former President Jonathan if they knew how much his administration wronged them.
According to Garba, a good leader should avoid making statement capable of inciting the public against a former leader .
“It is uncalled for and unsuitable in this cooling off period to stir up tension, when Nigerians are expecting a string of developmental projects as promised them by his party during the 2015 electioneering campaigns,” he added.
