Abuja - Former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godsday Orubebe on Tuesday accused Governor Adams Oshiomhole of betraying former president Goodluck Jonathan, reports NewsDay.

The former minister, who disrupted proceedings at the venue of the announcement of the presidential poll results in Abuja on March 31, noted that Oshiomhole was a major sycophant during the immediate-past administration, as the Chief Adviser on Economic and Labour Matters and particularly on Subsidy Removal to Jonathan.

He noted that the governor is today biting the fingers that fed him, having once cried around the former President for assistance and recognition.

Orubebe advised President Muhammadu Buhari to watch out for the likes of the Edo State governor, who would choke him with acclamation to enable them access the nation’s cake.
