PDP ran Nigeria down for 16 years, it will take Buhari time to fix it, says Oshiomhole

According to him, it will take some time to fix the nation’s economy, which according to him was battered by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for 16 years.

Oshiomhole, who acknowledged the current difficulties being faced by Nigerians, affirmed that the APC led government in the country was working round the clock to find solution to the problems.

The governor said: “Changes takes time, not only in the life of a person but more also in the life of a nation. This is a country that was ran down for 16 years by PDP. The APC government is going to achieve sincere change for Nigerians and we are working towards that”.

Commending Prof. Ihonvbere for helping his administration kick out the PDP government in Edo State, Oshiomhole said “Let me thank you for that honour for joining forces with us to sustain the fight against the forces that don’t think that Edo is entitled to development. And working side by side, we have cleaned up the political space.

“Even now that the umbrella has turned into three pieces, they are still boasting. When Edo was under one man’s rule, those voices were loud, they would have told you whether or not there is vacancy in Osadebey Avenue.

As you can see working together, strategizing together, mobilizing together, for refusing to agonize we are standing and they are down.

“There is no way I would have been able to achieve all these without the encouragement that you (Ihonvbere) have always readily offered in a moment of doubt when we were strategizing”, he stated.



  1. Hypocrites like you deserves place in the zoo. you talk too much and has never shown or done anything different from what your cohorts have done in the past. we know your state of wealth before you became governor despite the many compromises and misleading. a bag of rice was N75,000 when your party took over, today, it cannot buy half of that rice, what a shame, wake up to the reality. Obama inherited a state in recess and transformed it without laying blame to anybody, yet your party has spent a whole year blame-gaming. Once beaten twice shy.

  2. It appears this man was elected by Edo people to just criticize PDP and do nothing else. He has wasted eight years in the state just talking about what PDP did or didn’t do for sixteen years without for once proffering any solution. Oshiomhole is fast becoming one Nigerian that people no longer bother to read anything about him. It seems he has nothing more meaningful to contribute to national discuss and so he should please spare us this noises that sound like a broken cord.

  3. This man did nothing, absolutely nothing in Edo state, you need to see how backward his state is. I am highly disappointed in your judgement. the truth of the matter is you are not better off. Just a kettle calling pot black. Chikenna

  4. @bott u r nt frm Edo state n likely lives in far away sokoto…reason u r writting abaut what you dont knw here…or maybe u r frm a particular tribe in Edo,,,that never seen any good in Governor Oshomole…hence condem everything good thing he has done.

  5. PDP also reduced the oil price from about above $100 to $40? Use your head. And, what have you being doing with all the billions said to have been recovered? You sometimes meaningless talks make some people wonder, if it is the same Oshiomole the Labor Leader who turned politician.
