Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that history would deal with ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo for his decision to cede Bakassi to Cameroon.
Mr. Oshiomhole made the statement while speaking to his party supporters on Wednesday during its presidential campaign rally in Calabar, Cross River State. The party chairman called Obasanjo a traitor for ceding the Bakassi Penisula to Nigeria’s neighbour Cameroon.
He urged the people of Cross River State to “never forget Obasanjo because he handed over Nigeria to Cameroon because he wanted to win the Nobel Peace Prize.
“Nigeria can never forgive him. History will punish him if we are too weak to punish him.
“He separated fathers from mothers, brothers from sisters. The Nobel Peace Prize is not given to traitors.”
Also speaking during the rally was the president mentioned that his administration has done well in improving security and fighting corruption.
Buhari said, “Those within and outside the country who have honestly assessed our administration can attest to the fact that our administration has done well. We have also improved security in the North-East and the anti-corruption fight is ongoing.
“Our economy has been improving since 2018. The government has helped farmers with soft loans. We are working hard to make the country better.”
Sen. John Owan-Enoh, the APC gubernatorial candidate in Cross River State said the people are embracing change and it was visible.
“Buhari will win. The revolution that started in 2015 will berth in Cross River in 2019. The hunger for change is very palpable in Cross River. Cross Riverians expect that change”, he said.
