Former Ogun State Governor, Olusegun Osoba, has reacted to the Peoples Democratic Party’s criticism of President Bola Tinubu’s new year message.
Osoba said that the anger of the PDP is as an aftermath of the pains of “deep wounds” sustained in the 2023 election.
He said this while featuring on Arise TV’s Morning Show on Tuesday.
Recall that President Tinubu, in his New Year address to Nigerians on Monday, acknowledged that Nigerians are frustrated because of the removal of fuel subsidy and the Naira devaluation.
However, the PDP, in a statement on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, described Tinubu’s New Year speech as a harvest of deceit, false claims and empty promises.
The PDP also said Tinubu’s address was uninspiring and failed to tackle critical national issues, adding that the President neglected issues like insecurity, economic hardship, high inflation, and unemployment.
The former governor enjoined Nigerians not to expect the PDP to see anything positive about Tinubu’s administration, stressing that they are playing the role expected of the opposition.
“You don’t expect the PDP to see anything positive about this administration. They went to all lengths to ensure their dream of leading the country, and they lost at all levels. I think they are still nursing the deep wound and therefore they will use all kinds of languages to describe the situation in the country. They are playing the role expected of the opposition,” he said.
