Wike Blasts Oshiomhole, Says He Is Afraid Of Defeat

APC National Chairman

By Dipo Awojobi – Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike of Rivers State has berated the Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole for what he called his penchant for lies and his confirmed inconsistencies, admonishing him to stop lying at old age.

Wike said “Oshiomhole, at his age, should stop dramatising and telling lies, simply because he has been rejected by the people of Edo State, adding that “What will his children say when they see him behave like that.”

In a statement signed by the Special Assistant to Wike on Electronic Media, Simeon Nwakaudu, the governor described as completely untrue Oshiomhole’s allegations that he and his Delta State counterpart, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, had mobilised militants to Edo State to disrupt the governorship election.

Wike also denied allegations that he sent N2 billion to the Edo State PDP Governorship candidate.

Speaking when he granted audience to the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Rivers State at the Government House, Port Harcourt, on Wednesday, Wike said it is shocking that at his age, Oshiomhole still believes in drama and lies.

IPAC comprises of all registered political parties. Only the All Progressives Congress, APC, was absent during the solidarity visit.

Wike said he was shocked by Oshiomhole’s allegation because on the day of the campaign grand finale, 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. Just because two PDP governors visited Edo State, Oshiomhole is panicking,” he said.

“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 doesn’t 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.”

He noted 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.

The Governor explained further: “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.”

He charged Nigerians to disregard Oshiomhole’s lies as he is no longer pro-people.

“The Comrade in Oshiomhole has died long ago. There is no Comrade in him again. From Khaki, he is now wearing costly imported Safari suits,” he said.
