If we are too weak to punish Obasanjo, history will punish him –Oshiomhole



Court halts APC's plan to hold indirect primary in Kogi

All Progressive Congress (APC) National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, on Wednesday described former President Olusegun Obasanjo as a wicked statesman,

He also said that if nobody punished him for his actions that history will.

Obasanjo’s ‘sin’ according to Oshiomhole was that he allegedly ceded Bakassi Peninsula to Cameroon in the hunt for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Oshiomhole spoke at the U. J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar, the Cross River State capital during the APC presidential campaign rally in the state.

He told the crowd at the rally ground: “I want to remind the People of Cross River State that never, ever can you afford to forget a Nigerian leader in the person of former President Olusegun Obasanjo who ceded part of Cross River State to Cameroon because he was pursuing a noble peace prize award.

“He handed over Nigerian territory to a foreign country and reduced Nigerians to become refugees. The lady that presented a gift to Mr. President has no home; Obasanjo ceded her community to Cameroon.

“There is no statesman in the world that will voluntarily cede parts of his territory to another country just because he needed noble peace prize award. If we are too weak to punish him, history will punish him.

“We cannot forget someone who separated families, those who give the noble peace prize award, don’t give it to traitors, they gave it to people who had worked hard, not for traitors, not for opportunist and not for those who bastardised their father land.”

Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari addressing the people promised that if re-elected he will sustain improvement of the economy adding that Banks have been instructed to give soft loans.

“Honest Nigerians said that they knew what he was doing and they appreciated it especially in the area of corruption. If you votes for us in the forth coming elections, we shall do more,” he said.
