- Adams Oshiomhole's aide criticised Goodluck Jonathan for saying his boss is suffering from multiple personality syndrome
- The APC chairman's press secretary accused Jonathan of inventing vote-buying
- He claimed this action influenced the PDP's victory in Edo state
Simon Ebebulem who is the chief press secretary to the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has lashed out at former president, Goodluck Jonathan, for attacking his boss.
The Punch reports that Ebebulem’s attack came following Jonathan’s response to Oshiomhole’s allegation that vote-buying intensified during his administration.
Ebebulem said Jonathan’s questioning of Oshiomhole’s mental ability was new low. He said: “If the allegation that the APC national chairman is having psychological issues with the even more specific reference to “multiple personality syndrome,” came from a doctor of human medicine with specialisation in psychology, it could debatably enjoy some merit.
“But Jonathan is a zoologist from the swamps of Otuoke. This is clearly veering from his turf and unworthy of further debate.
“Probably still retaining some remnant of conscience after a disastrous presidency, he was stung when APC national chairman recently correctly accused him specifically and his party of birthing vote-buying and encouraging electoral fraud in Nigeria.
“After unseemly name-calling, the former President without even addressing the core points raised by Oshiomhole felt the easier path was to counter-accuse the APC leader with exactly the same damning allegation.”
The APC chairman’s spokesperson claimed Jonathan invented vote-buying.
He said: “Out of desperation, Jonathan injected over N5bn through the PDP leaders with a view to forcefully influence Edo electorate into voting the PDP. This was why the PDP was able to corner two senatorial seats in the state and got a majority of the House of Representatives’ seats against the wish of the electorate in Edo State."
NAIJ.com had reported that Jonathan has said that the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, is suffering from multiple personality syndrome.
