Following the postponement of the last week Saturday-scheduled Edo State guber elections to a new date, September 28 2016, Rivers State governor Nyesom Wike has criticized Edo State counterpart, Adams Oshiomhole for dishonesty.
Wike speaking to the Inter-Party Advisory Council, Rivers State chapter at the Government House in Port Harcourt yesterday 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.
“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 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 inconsistencies, anywhere Oshiomhole goes, he insults the former President. When President Buhari leaves office, Oshiomhole will do the same to him.”
