The Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has made a shocking revelation of how former president, Goodluck Jonathan threatened to ‘put him in a hole’ if he supports President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressive Congress (APC) after May 29 in the Presidential Elections.
Oshiomhole made this revelation known whilst speaking at a meeting with some leaders of the APC from the three senatorial districts of Edo State on Thursday January 15.
One might wonder why this revelation is coming now!
In his words: “The former president, Goodluck Jonathan told our national chairman, Chief John Odigie Oyegun, to inform me that after the election, he will put me, Adams, the son of Oshiomhole in a hole and I told Chief Oyegun to inform him to dig that hole very deep because although I am short, in the course of pushing me into the hole, nobody knows who will get there first.
“Since he is taller than me, he needs to dig the hole deep enough so that either of us can get in. In the end, he is inside the hole and I am busy putting dust into that hole’’
He went further by saying:
“Around this time last year, in January, a few weeks to the election, many were saying quite recklessly on radio and television that we were finished.
“In this hall, around this time last year, we held a meeting to share information about what was going on in various local governments and the specific challenges in each of those local governments in order to fashion out appropriate response.
“Some of the statements that we shared in those meetings included threats that by June, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole would have been impeached because PDP would write results whether we liked it or not. They would overrun the House of Assembly and once the House is proclaimed in June, before the end of June, Comrade would be banished to his house in the village and from there to prison,” he said.
He also said “Those who made those threats, who supervised those processes, even now in their early 90s are writing letters to explain how they shared money meant for defence. Every evil weapon they fashioned against me did not prosper and even the ones they are fashioning now will not prosper.”
