Nigerians React: Once You Have Joined APC, All Your Sins Are Forgiven”- Oshiomhole
Adams Oshiomhole is a man of many words. Whether it is as a previous activist as the leader of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) or the former governor of Edo state or as the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), his words are often not said in isolation and are taken seriously by his party and their oppositions.
In a rather interesting reveal, Oshiomhole while welcoming new members of the APC in Benin expressed excitement on national television that “very very senior people from the PDP” had decamped including Henry Duke Genebe as well as Chief Esheshi Godwin.
But what piqued listener’s interest was when he mentioned that “once you have joined APC, all your sins are forgiven.”
It is noteworthy that the APC administration has since its entry into the Nigerian political clime preached on stopping corruption.
True to his words, a lot of political office holders who have been accused of corrupt practices and stealing have not been sanctioned despite calls for probation.
This statement is seen as a slap on the faces of many Nigerians.
See some of their reactions below:
Once you join APC, all your sins are forgiven – Oshiomhole.
APC don’t rate their supporters. They know that most of their followers are brainwashed, that’s why they don’t give a hoot about the consequences of their statements. The nitwits will come and defend the inanities!

The former Governor of Akwa Ibom who is also the subject of criminal investigations by the EFCC was sanctified by the President after he dumped the PDP and defected. Same for the current APC National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole and the former PDP National Chairman, Adamu Muazu.

Don’t twist my words, Japh. It wasn’t the political difference, but the dangerous and manifest hypocrisy: calling someone corrupt when he was in your team, and making a u-turn when he’s no more. If you don’t see this that way, then you’re definitely mincing words, and dishonest. https://t.co/VQjvNTEBDt

There are some that believe it is technology:
This video is not real, it was the same technology they used for Gaduje dollar video they applied here again, Oshiomhole can never say this, he would have sent his spokesman

If they will blame another political party, time will tell.
