London – Renowned Human Rights Activist, Rev. David Ugolor has carpeted President Goodluck Jonathan, for turning his back at the Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole when his personal Aide Comrade Olaitan Oyerinde was killed by those he described as agents of the Federal Government.
Ugolor in a fax message to The Nigerian observer from the United Kingdom yesterday wondered why President Goodluck Jonathan would expect the same Comrade Governor to support him now that he is sinking.
“When Comrade Olaitan Oyerinde was assassinated, the Comrade Governor cried to the President, he had shouting match with the Federal Attorney General and Minister of Justice, he called for justice from the Police under MD Abubakar and, the President Ignored him.
“Yet, this was a Comrade Governor who delivered almost 95% of the votes to President Goodluck Jonathan in Edo State in the 2011 Presidential election and when it mattered most to him to reciprocate the gesture, Mr. President turned his back at him”, Ugolor asserted.
He noted that President Jonathan was not a friend of Edo people and cannot come to Edo to shop for votes again.
Rev. Ugolor also said that an Edo indigene who was secretary to the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Prof. Yinka Omorogbe was sacked by President Goodluck Jonathan while the Petroleum Minister from his Bayelsa State, who has been presiding over a corruption cartel is left to remain in spite of the clamour by Nigerians for her removal.
Rev. Ugolor also noted that the Gelegele Port promised Edo people have been taken to another state while Edo has the largest Gas Deposit in Nigeria, yet the biggest Gas company earlier earmarked for Edo was taken to an Ijaw enclave of Ogidigben and called on the people of the state not to fall for President Jonathan a second time haven disappointed them when it mattered most.
