The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress. Adams Oshiomhole, has knocked the presidential candidate of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDD, Atiku Abubakar for promising to create three million kind per annum if elected in 2019.
Oshiomhole who descended on Atiku while addressing newsmen at the end of the APC National Working Committee meeting Monday night.
Oshiomhole queried why Atiku did not do that when he was part of the presidency.
His words : “If you say you are going to create ten million jobs you have to tell us why when you were in government, you could not do that.
“By the time that government was out, we had lost Michelin, Dunlop closed down, the entire textile industry closed down.
“We were witnesses to the unprecedented levels of industrial obituaries. Factories were closing one after the other just at the time the then PDP government promised to create more jobs.
“These are issues we really want to engage. It will be every interesting to play back what people are saying”, he said
