The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has said the alliance against President Muhammadu Buhari is dead on arrival.
Oshiomhole stated this at the APC mega rally, which held in Ado-Ekiti, capital of Ekiti State, on Tuesday.
On Monday, the Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC) teamed up with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and 37 parties, to form a coalition to defeat Buhari in the 2019 elections.
“You heard yesterday that they have finally conceded that they are down,” Oshiomhole said.
“Yesterday, they said that they are doing alliance between Volkswagen, Renault, Peugeot 404. They said they are coming together to reinforce.
“I say they are lying. When you see a man that is dying, he will cling to the living to get life. Can a dead man wake the dead?
“I won’t say more than that today, when we get to the other elections, we will speak to those,” he added.
Oshiomhole also alleged that Ekiti workers were suffering, because Governor Ayodele Fayose brought poverty to the state.
“My comrades, you know what your situation was and what it is today.
“Yesterday, I spoke with the workers and they lamented to me that even teachers have not been paid for one year, civil servants, local government workers, even pensioners.
“But then, you will remember that our own President Buhari asked Fayose and some others, ‘How do you sleep when you have not paid your worker over one year?’
“And Fayose collected N10 billion for bailout to go and bailout the salaries of Ekiti workers and pensioners. Fayose decided to bail out his own pocket but our president did not lament about that. He cautioned him, ‘Don’t do that again’.
“Another bailout, N10 billion, Fayose collected, he came to Ekiti and put the money where he put it and as we speak, you know more than me that Ekiti people have been pauperised and because they have not been paid, they can’t pay their rents, they can’t go to the market, and when no one goes to the market, the economy will not boom.
“But I am not surprised because he comes from poverty development party.”
