Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole on Thursday disclosed that All Progressives Congress (APC) states were exempted from the N2 billion Ecological funds released to People’s Democratic Party (PDP) states by former President Goodluck Jonathan. According to him, the last administration was discriminatory against some state governors in the distribution of bailout funds.
He spoke with State House correspondents at the end of Governors’ meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja. In the face of the worsening state of the economy, Oshiomhole, however said that President Buhari has remained a rallying point for all state governments in the country irrespective of political affiliation.
He said: “We are very lucky to have President Buhari at this time. I have been here now for seven and half years and I have had the opportunity to work with three Presidents, that is the truth.
