Adams Oshiomhole, the chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and former two-term governor of Edo State, issued a statement yesterday denying he had said some uncomplimentary stuff about Aisha Buhari, the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The statement was issued by Oshiomhole’s press secretary and dismissed the claims. “This is part of the fake news from the pit of hell being propagated by highly unscrupulous elements of the PDP [Peoples Democratic Party] and their cohorts, knowing fully well that they have lost the forthcoming general elections”. The statement went on to claim that: “The tiger cannot change its spots, as the saying goes. PDP has chosen to remain the lying party it has always been.”
A child in primary school in Edo State could have told Oshiomhole that it is leopards that have spots. And the saying is that “a leopard cannot change its spots”. A tiger is the one with stripes. Knowing how intellectually challenged the former Edo State governor is, pictures of a leopard and a tiger are shown below in case he or his spokesman comes across this piece.
The ruling APC promised a tigerish transformation of the economy while running for the presidency nearly four years ago. All Nigeria has seen so far is the meek scratching around of a stray cat.
