Nigeria’s Main opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party has called on the National Intelligence Agency and Interpol to track down Oshiomhole who is believed to have travelled outside the country since after he was reportedly interrogated by the DSS over his roles in the party primaries that are currently causing ambiguity in the governing party
Continuing, the National Publicity Secretary kola Ologbodiyan also accused President Buhari of shielding Oshiomhole from prosecution for fear that his investigation would implicate certain interests at the Presidency and the APC.
He said, “It is ludicrous that the APC, in its lying proclivities, believes that by dismissing Oshiomhole’s arrest as a rumour and aiding him to momentarily flee the country, it would succeed in getting him off the DSS hook as well as sweeping the matter out of public discourse with its famished broom.
“ Nigerians are already aware that Oshiomhole has not denied his investigation including his reported confession that the Presidency was in the know of all his actions”.
“The PDP had always cautioned Adams Oshiomhole of his unbridled arrogance, lust for power and alleged embezzlement of public funds for which he must surely have his day in the hands of the law.
“The PDP, therefore, demands that the APC and the Buhari Presidency must immediately produce Adams Oshiomhole to face investigation and prosecution in our courts.”
Meanwhile, the Director General of Voice of Nigeria (VON) Chief Osita Okechukwu in a statement is also asking the economic and financial crime commission to partner DSS with a view to substantiating allegations that the chairman accepted bribes during the primaries. Okechukwu has repeatedly blamed the collapse of his senatorial ambition on Oshiomhole’s handling of the polls.
He said: “Penultimate week, I joined the league of APC moral leaders, faithful and men of good conscience to call on Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, to honorably resign forthwith the chairmanship of our great party. In his usual narcissistic disposition he refused. As the Oshiomhole Must Go wave raged, the DSS got wind of it. They interrogated him and I patiently waited to read in the social or main media from Oshiomhole and his spin-doctors about his tango with the DSS. Neither rebuttal nor denial came from them.
“I therefore once again stridently call on Oshiomhole to, instead of pontificating, grandstanding and running away from the country, do the needful by honourably resigning the chairmanship. It seems he is running away from duty to evade the substitution window meant to redress the grievances of some of us who are casualties of his nepotism.”
