-Oshiomhole Has Lost Confidence Of Edo people
Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike of Rivers State has tongue-lashed his Edo state, counterpart, Adams Oshiomhole,, over what he described as his penchant for lies and confirmed inconsistencies.
Wike said Oshiomhole is now in panic mode over the rejection of All Progressives Congress (APC) by the people of Edo State.
Wike said Oshiomhole lied again when he claimed that he (Wike), and his Delta State counterpart, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, mobilised militants to Edo State prior to the September 10governorship election which was however shifted by INEC.
The governor further said that Oshiomhole also lied when he claimed that he (Wike), sent N2 billion to the Edo State PDP Governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
Speaking Wednesday when he granted audience to River state chapter of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), at the Government House, Port Harcourt, Governor Wike said it is shocking that Oshiomhole still believes in drama and lies despite is age.
IPAC comprises of all registered political parties. Only the APC was absent at the solidarity visit.
He said that he was shocked by Oshiomhole allegation because on the day of the campaign, he met with the outgoing governor alongside other APC governors at the Benin airport where they all embraced.
“Oshiomhole even cornered me and said ‘don’t mind these people, they don’t know that we meet and talk’”, he said.
“If Oshiomhole has lost the confidence of his people, he should not blame me. He brought the President and 10 APC Governors and he was not satisfied. Only because two PDP governors visited Edo State, Oshiomhole is panicking.
“Oshiomhole at his age should stop dramatising and telling lies. What will his children say when they see him behave like that”
“If you cannot win election, you cannot win election no matter the number of security reports that you write.
“Oshiomhole doesnt know when to stop lying. Why do you think that you will continue to deceive the people? This was the same man who praised former President Goodluck Jonathan for promoting free and fair election, one man, one vote which saw Oshiomhole win a second term. Today, in his notorious inconsistency, anywhere Oshiomhole goes, he insults the former President. When President Buhari leaves office, Oshiomhole will do the same to him”, Wike said.
Wike explained that he was in Edo State to campaign for the PDP the same way that Oshiomhole stormed Rivers State in 2015 to campaign for the then APC Governorship candidate in the state.
“What I told Edo people that has set Oshiomhole in panic mode is that they should not trust INEC or the security agencies because they will never be neutral. I still repeat that the Edo people must remain vigilant so that they their votes will count”, Wike said.
He also charged Nigerians to disregard Oshiomhole’s lies as he is no longer pro-people.
“The Comrade in Oshiomhole died long ago. There is no Comrade in him. From khaki, he is now wearing costly imported safari suits”, Wike said of Oshiomhole.
