The National Chairman of African Democratic Party, which was recently adopted by Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, Chief Ralph Nwosu, on Friday, disclosed that he was offered oil well and billions of dollars to destroy the party, following its adoption by Obasanjo’s movement, the Coalition for Nigeria Movement.
He disclosed this at the Greeen Legacy hall, Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta while welcoming a former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2015 governorship election in Ogun State, Gboyega Isiaka, into the party.
Nwosu, who was accompanied by the National Secretary of the party, Abdullahi Baba, did not however mention the names of those who offered him the inducement.
While denying the allegation that the party was bought from him by Obasanjo’s coalition, he said he had spent over N600m to build the party.
The ADC chairman also accused the All Progressives Congress of copying the party’s slogan and manifesto through one of its coalitions, Congress for Progressive Change.
He said he had approached President Muhammadu Buhari in 2006 shortly after registering the ADC, and advised him to join the party because of its rich manifesto and constitution but he rejected the offer only to copy the ‘change’ slogan and the manifesto.
