There seems to be no end in sight to the war of words between Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole and former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godsday Orubebe as the latter has described the governor as a ‘garage boy.’
Ex-minister says governor is a ‘garage boy’
The latest outburst is Orubebe’s response to Oshiomhole calling him a clown and an embarrassment to his family.
The former minister made the comments on Wednesday, August 26, 2015.
“I am proud to have been a vital instrument used by God to take the once abandoned East- West Road project to an admirable 80 per cent level of completion. It is unfortunate that our respected Niger Delta could produce the likes of Oshiomhole who is a garage boy that should be at the motor park.”
“I will disgrace him publicly and tell the world about his dubious deeds as governor as well as his role in the botched Third Term Bid of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.”
“I am going to open his can of worms to the point that Nigerians will stone him if seen on the streets. I don’t talk carelessly as I have my facts to prove my points.”
“If he is reasonable, he will not refer to my action at the election result collation centre. This is because, history will talk about it and Nigerians will be proud of me. Yes, I had to apologise to Nigerians, particularly the youths over my I term ‘wrong approach to a just course’. Yes, I had a just case that was deliberately ignored, as one who felt cheated, and so reacted.”
“I’m laughing at him because, if there’s anyone who should bury his face in shame, it has to be Oshiomhole who disgraced, harassed and rough handled a poor widow who he should have ordinarily accommodated.”
“My people are very proud of me, I mean the aged, the poor and orphans. I don’t disgrace them before putting smiles on their faces. I maintain the fact that Oshiomhole is a popular villa sycophant, a garage boy and that PMB should be weary of him, if he must succeed and be really admired.”
The trouble between the two started when Orubebe described Oshiomhole as a “Villa sycophant” who had been begging President Goodluck Jonathan for favours during the latter’s tenure.
