Written by Morenike Adebayo on August 11, 2016
The Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomole, on Wednesday clashed with a former Governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke, and ex-Niger State Governor, Babangida Aliyu, over the poor performance of the economy and decline of the Naira. At the public lecture organized by the Kukah Centre for Faith, Leadership and Public Policy, Oshiomhole condemned the previous Peoples Democratic Party government. He said crass corruption and looting, which characterized the PDP sixteen years in power, are responsible for Nigeria’s current economic crisis.
Duke had earlier criticized the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government and its change mantra, adding that the change campaign was nothing but fake propaganda. Similarly, Aliyu tackled the Federal Government, APC governors and their economic policies, warning that such economic policies had increased the suffering of Nigerians.
