Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has stated that the recent outburst by Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole showed that he (Oshiomhole) was afraid of impending defeat in the forthcoming governorship election in the state.
Wike stated that Oshiomhole’s inconsistencies had proven that the people of Edo had rejected the All Progressives Congress in the state.
He stated that it was “completely” untrue that he and his Delta State counterpart, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, mobilised militants to Edo State.
The governor further denied the allegation by Oshiomhole that he sent N2 billion to Edo State PDP governorship candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
Wike, who spoke when he granted audience to the Inter-Party Advisory Council, Rivers State chapter at the Government House in Port Harcourt, said it was shocking that Oshiomhole still believed in drama and lies.
“Oshiomhole even cornered me and said ‘don’t mind these people, they don’t know that we meet and talk.
“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, Oshiomole is panicking.
“Today in his notorious inconsistencies, anywhere Oshiomhole goes, he insults the former President. When President Buhari leaves office, Oshiomole will do the same to him,” Wike added.
