Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, on Tuesday described the present hardship experienced by Nigerians as a direct result of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) 16 years misrule.
Oshiomhole stated this at a campaign rally for the All Progressive Congress governorship candidate in the state, Mr Godwin Obaseki, at Ikhin and Amoya, Owan East Local Government Area of the state.
Â He said the PDP leadership used funds meant to develop the country to line their pockets.
He urged the people to be patient with the President Muhammadu Buhariâ€™s administration, saying the governmentÂ is working hard to fix the problems.
He urged the Edo people to punish the PDP with their votes.
â€œThe PDP caused this hardship we are all going through. They pocketed the money meant to buy arms to prosecute the Boka Haram urgency in the Northeast.
â€œThey also stole funds meant to construct roads, build airports and hospitals. They also caused the dollars to be far higher than the naira.
â€œBut while we are pained, I will urge you all to continue to punish them with your votes,â€ he said.
