Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole, the ex-national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has explained that Nigerians don’t appreciate good leaders until they leave office, citing that former president Goodluck Jonathan left legacies even though that he had cause to fight because it is politics.

The former Governor of Edo State admitted that he fought former President Jonathan out of office due to their differences in political interests.

According to Oshiomhole: “You (Jonathan) left legacies even though that I had cause to fight because it is politics. The legacy you have left, there is no successor who can afford to do less.

“But the logic of multi-party democracy is that even an angel can be defeated. You have set a standard that none of your successors can afford to go below.

“Part of your (Jonathan) legacies was when you launched the almajiri school and your thought was that no Nigerian child should be left on the street and also appropriated special funds.

“These ideas are not new but what we lack is the will to transform it to practice. We never know who are our friends until when we are no more.

“No one is appreciated until he or she leaves office,” Oshiomhole said.
