The Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has said the Peoples Democratic Party has exhausted its bags of lies in its attempt to discredit the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), over his academic qualification.
The Government College, Katsina (formerly Provincial Secondary School) had on Wednesday released the WASCE result of Buhari, shortly after he had formerly requested the school to make the documents available to dispel the controversy surrounding his qualification.
Oshiomhole said the capability of Buhari was not in doubt, adding that he would secure the votes of Nigerians even if he tendered his electricity bill.
The governor, who spoke during an inspection of road projects, which culminated in a campaign at the Egor market in Upper Siluko area of the state capital, added that Nigerians were tired of the current situation in the country, accusing the Federal Government of failing to provide Nigerians with the basic infrastructure.
Oshiomhole said, “I’m happy that you people are following what is happening. One young man said even if Buhari doesn’t have a school certificate. Another said the other man has a doctorate in Zoology, but we can’t even get fish on our table.
“The truth is that everybody is tired. Today in this market, I’m sure you don’t have light. We have provided the electric poles and the transformer but they will not give us light.
“So, the only solution is after 16 years of PDP, they have exhausted their lies. We have to bring General Buhari because we want a leader with courage. When he says I will do, he will do it; not a leader that will promise during campaigns but will disappear after the campaigns.”
The governor also accused the Federal Government of enriching a few individuals.
“They are telling us they are going to bring a lot of money to buy our votes. When they bring the money, collect it; it’s the money they stole from you, but we will not vote for them,” he added.
