PDP is biggest election rigger, says Edo lawmaker

Candidate of the All Progressives Congress for Ikpoba-Okha/Egor federal constituency, Hon Ehiozuwa Agbonnayima, has described the People’s Democratic Party as the biggest rigger of elections in the history of Nigeria.

Hon. Agbonnayima who is currently a member of the House of Representatives said the PDP was crying foul by accusing the ruling APC of plotting to rig Saturday’s election.

Agbonnayima who spoke to newsmen at the weekend after commissioning an Information and Communication Technology centre he constructed at the Western Boys High School urged the media to properly educate the masses for them not to clap hands for criminals.

He said the Nigerians should be made to know that it was the PDP that caused hardship in the country because millions of naira were stolen under the 16 years rule of the PDP.

Hon Agbonnayima said the investigations showed that 41 countries bought stolen crude oil from Nigeria under the PDP.

According to him, “I was once with them and I know their game. They are just crying foul knowing well that they are total failure. They failed this country.

“Under the PDP, billions of crude oil left this country and there is no record to show that anything left but when you go to London, US, and 41 countrioes, you will see what landed in those countries. Back in Nigeria there was nothing in the records to show what left the country. The buyers and sellers were documented in those countries.

“The US government gave us comprehensive list of what left this country to their port at Houston. A total of 391 million barrels. In India, 226 milion barrels were received.

“Two persons were involved in the crime in which Jefferson was convicted. America prosecuted him and sentenced him to 15 years imprisonment while the other one is contesting to be Nigeria’s President. We all should be embarrassed and ashamed.

“What business has Atiku done? He said he was in the Nigeria Custom and he gave himself INTEL. He was Vice President. Show me the business he did if not being government ‘child’.

“Obasanjo called him a thief in his book. Can we give Atiku responsibility? Can we give him resources of this country? Can you imagining handing over your property to a criminal. He sold all government assets. He said he is coming back to sell the NNPC. Let us support Buhari because he is fighting copruption.”
