PDP Thug, Col. Nyiam Deserves Our Pity – Oshiomhole

PDP Thug, Col. Nyiam Deserves Our Pity – Oshiomhole


Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, governor of Edo state  yesterday described the reaction of a PDP thug, Col Tony Nyiam who led fellow thugs to disrupt his speech at the Presidential Advisory Committee/National Dialogue meeting with south south leaders in Benin as “lame and odious.”

He declared that Nyiam lacks respect for constituted authority, noting that his ourburst during the speech shows how much he loves disunity and that he should only be pitied.

Oshiomhole asserted that Nyiam’s outburst further exposed him as a biased member of a committee which should be above political, ethnic and other sentiments.


In a statement by his chief press secretary, Peter Okhiria, the Edo governor, while reacting to a media report credited to Nyiam that Oshiomhole lacked respect for elders and constituted authority,  wondered when Col Nyiam became the president’s spokesman as to want to drag the president’s name into his shameful act.

“We are however not surprised, going by his antecedents, the Benin incident was just another manifestation of Nyiam’s lack of respect for constituted authority and his love for causing disunity.

“Nyiam said Governor Adams Oshiomhole was ‘talking down on the people’. We wonder when airing one’s opinion or saying ‘I believe that the outcome of this conference will not be different from that of other conferences we have had in the past’ means talking down on the people.”

The statement went on to say that the Nyiam deserved pity because he might still be hallucinating thinking he is an Army officer who must be obeyed.

 “We recognise that no military officer worth his salt would openly disagree with a superior or a governor at a forum such as the one in Benin City, but again, we recognise that the maxim ‘officer and gentleman’ does not apply to Nyiam.”

He said that Nyiam’s action had exposed the undercurrent motive of the conference which had also confirmed Governor Oshiomhole’s initial fears about the viability, necessity and desirability of the conference.

“In as much as we believe that Nigeria is in dire straits, the governor still insists that a talk shop with no agenda is not necessary at this time,” he noted.
