Oshiomhole promises forgiveness to defectors
National Chairman, All Progressives Congress(APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has endeared members of the opposition party to join APC that their sins could be forgiven.
He spoke at the APC rally in Benin, Edo State, on Thursday while receiving some members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) into the APC during the rally.
He said, “We have some PDP defectors. They are, Henry Tenebe, Iluobe….Iluobe means I have done something wrong. Yes, once you join the APC, your sins are forgiven.”
Oshiomhole advised people to vote for the President Buhari and all APC candidates.
Earlier at a rally in Warri, Delta State, Presidential Buhari vowed that his administration would continue to hunt those who stole public money and deal with them, assuring them that attention would be given to the region if re-elected.
“In the fight against corruption, I assure you that all those who have fraudulently enriched themselves when they were entrusted with public funds, we will eventually get them and deal with them. We are doing it, we will continue to do it and I assure you, we will not abuse your trust,” he stated.
At the rally, Oshiomhole appealed to Buhari to probe the $16bn spent on the National Integrated Power Project by the PDP-led government of Olusegun Obasanjo.
