Oshiomhole Defends Chief Of Staff, Says Buhari Can Work As President From Anywhere


Oshiomhole defends Chief of staff, says Buhari can work as President from anywhere
Former Governor of Edo state and National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari can preside over the affairs of the nation from anywhere in the world.
This disclosure was made during his courtesy visit to the Senate President Ahmad Lawan and other principal officers of the Senate on Tuesday, November 5.
The two-term governor of Edo state said that the assention of the Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contract Act (amendment Bill) in London indisputably shows that President Buhari is working and he can do that from anywhere in the world.
Oshiomhole revealed that he was happy to see President Buhari signing the act into law in London and praised the President for always observing his duty wherever he may be.
“That like you the President recognized that if you can manage it as quickly as you did and come out with such fundamental amendment that has such enormous impact on our national revenue, he as President also has to do the needful.
“I think by signing into law at the Nigerian House in London, it shows that the wherever the President is, he is Presiding over Nigeria and with the benefit of modern technology we have passed the Mongo Park era, he said.
According to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), “So signing it in London for me has also made several statements. Namely, that where ever national interest is involved, the President is on duty and wherever he is he is presiding.
“I also salute his assenting to the Bill as fast as he did and even at the Nigerian House in London.”
He further added that it was necessary to speak to the quick passage of the PSC law, because even though every Nigerian knows the problems of the country, “what is missing that level of integrity you require to subordinate your personal interest when the forces are unleashed and submit to national interest.
“It is this difference that I believe the National Assembly under your leadership across party divide has brought to bear. Nigerians ought to celebrate you.
“We are as party, we celebrate you, we celebrate the Senate, we celebrate our APC members. We celebrate the PDP members because we monitored the debate and there is no evidence that is any party divide, he said.
“National interest was at play. We have have come to appreciate you and under your leadership the Senate would be a formidable national pillar that Nigerians can rely on in our journey to take the nation to the next level.”
