“Adams Oshiomole’s sudden U-turn is a great insult on Edo people. This is an opportunity for Edo people both at home and in the diaspora to use their votes to tell Oshiomole they cannot take his lies anymore.”

These were the exact words of Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike, as he tried to rouse the people of Edo State to support the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governor Godwin Obaseki to retain power through the September 19 governorship election.

Wike is the PDP National Campaign Council for the Edo election, said on Wednesday, that the party actually had no opponent as Adams Oshiomhole, the former National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), and former governor of the state, had already settled the matter about the personality of Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

 “Such a character cannot be accepted by Edo people as Governor during the election. I respect the Benin tradition and I know that Edo people are educated to know that Oshiomhole cannot play on their intelligence,” Wike, said in a statement by the Rivers State Commissioner for Information, Paulinus Nsirim.

He added: “If he is now retracting what he said of Ize Iyamu, who is sure that he’s saying the correct thing now.

“Adams Oshiomole’s sudden U-turn is a great insult on Edo people. This is an opportunity for Edo people both at home and in the diaspora to use their votes to tell Oshiomole they cannot take his lies anymore.

“From all indications, it is obvious that there is no strong opposition against Obaseki and he will win convincingly”.

Stating that he and his team accepted the responsibility to lead the campaign because they are satisfied with results coming out already from Edo State, he added that the PDP had continued to take steps in strengthening the nation’s democracy with the promotion of internal politics and resolving conflict of interests of members to achieve common goals.

Alluding to the unity of purpose, currently existing in the party, he said: “It was not easy to have a sole candidate for the party in Edo state. People thought there will be problems, given the fact that Obaseki was coming from another Party.

“But Party members who are grounded and believe in the Party didn’t see any sacrifice too much to make.

“Even in Ondo State, the former Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi who decamped to PDP contested keenly during the primaries and lost. If there are other pending issues in the South West, be sure that the Party will resolve them.

“That is exactly what Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as the chairman of South-South States’ Governors had done.

“He is making sure that we are all on the same page to ensure that all states in the South-South are controlled by PDP”.
