Wike: Edo People Must Resist The Third Term Agenda Of Oshiomhole



Governor Nyesom Wike, Rivers State

By Daniel Dafe

Nyesom Wike, Governor of Rives State, has said that the September 11 election of Edo State is a “face saving, do or die venture” for Adams Oshiomole “having been treated badly in Abuja,” adding that “Edo people must resist the third term agenda of Oshiomhole.”

Governor Wike who said this in a tweet late night on Monday, added: “Governor Obaseki is not a violent man like Ize-Iyamu who has instructed the thugs he called “lions and tigers” to cause crisis,” urging the police and the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) “to use the Edo election to correct previous mistakes by conducting free and fair polls.”

Wike continued: “We consider the comment by INEC to cancel or suspend the election because of violence as succumbing to the antics of the APC. All they want is violence because they cannot win the election. If the election is suspended, the implication is that Obaseki will serve out his tenure without election in November.”

He wondered why APC will support a man it charged to court for corruption, saying that “such stance shows that their corruption fight  is a farce and a witch hunt of political opponents.”

His words: “Why will APC say that PDP has no justification to demand that Osagie Ize-Iyamu should go and face his charges before the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission ( EFCC)? This is a Party that told Nigerians in 2015 of its resolve to fight corruption.

“It is also APC that took him to court.  Oshiomhole was the one who told us that Edo people cannot vote for a man who is corrupt. Now they are saying he is their candidate because he has not been found guilty.

“We are tired of this double standard. They apply the rule differently to different people.”
