After Embarrassing Emefiele, Buhari, You Decide To Jump Ship Because Of Money – Oshiomhole Blasts Obaseki

Adams Oshiomhole, a former governor of Edo State, claims that Godwin Obaseki, the current governor of the state, is supporting the revised naira policy put out by Godwin Emefiele, the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), because he needs money from him.

Speaking to some reporters in Benin City, Oshiomhole remarked that neither his successor nor any other citizen has the authority to order his arrest.

He argued that his position was one of the factors contributing to people’s reservations about state police, which certain state governors could easily misuse.

Speaking during an interview with Vanguard, Oshiomhole claimed that Obaseki had embarrassed Emefiele when he claimed that he printed billions of naira to share for states by way of a Federation Account.

He stated that after Obaseki realized his need for cash, he decided to jump ship and support the cashless policy.

According to him, “I think Obaseki after embarrassing the Central Bank Governor, Emefiele, when he accused him sometime last year or the year before of printing hundreds of billions of Naira to share for states by way of Federation Account and that Emefiele’s policies are going to destroy the Naira even as he admitted that the money was being shared to state Governments, I think he realized that election is coming, Obaseki needs cash and who will give him this cash, o yes the person who has given him before, he took billions from the Central Bank in the name of Agriculture. Ask Obaseki to show you where the farms are.

“A man who has been abusing the Federal Government, abusing Buhari, abusing anything Federal suddenly decided that a policy that I have denounced even as a former chairman of APC and I did not denounce it secretly, I denounced it on national television is now what he supports.”
