Nyesom Wike , the governor of Rivers State and the PDP chairman for Edo State governorship election campaign, says Edo State governorship election will be the easiest to be won by the People Democratic Party ( PDP). He made this known to Nigerians while granting interview to Channels Television Sunrise Daily on Tuesday
Wike says Edo people are not fools and can’t be deceived all the time by Adam’s Oshiomole’s lies. Oshiomole had apologized to the people of Edo State that all he said about Ize- Iyamu four years ago were lies, and that he had done that on the ground of political interest. Four years ago Oshiomole alleged that Ize-Iyamu is a fake pastor and while a student he poured acid to a school mate that led to lose of manhood.
Wike opined that for the same Adams Oshiomole to try to sell Ize- Iyamu to the people of Edo State is absurd and ridiculous. Wike further noted that it is Adams Oshiomole that is contesting the governorship election for Ize-Iyamu. He called on the people of Edo State and Nigerians to resist god fatherism that almost crippled Edo State in the past four years when Adams Oshiomole had to approve all appointment and contracts in Edo State before they were accepted.
Reacting to accusation on Obaseki by the PDP four years ago, Wike said it has been set aside by the court and PDP had to accept that Obaseki’s educational qualifications are not questionable as previously alleged. He submitted that it was different from accusations on Ize-Iyamu by Oshiomole that was never contested in court for image defamation, only for Oshiomole to apologise now to Edo people that they were lies because he wants to win election.
