Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has lambasted Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said; “How can Oshiomhole compare himself to me. I’m well-read. I am a lawyer. I am a life bencher. I have my first degree in Political Science and my second degree in Law and I went to the Nigerian Law School and I passed very well, Let Oshiomhole tell me which University he attended. As a unionist, he enriched himself.”
“How did he become the Governor of Edo State, who doesn’t know? It’s just the country that we are in people who cannot boast of any certificate can be National Chairman. Let Oshiomhole tell me one University he attended. I attended the University of Port Harcourt, Rivers State University and served in old Gongola State.”
“How dare he open his mouth and called himself an Antelope. Oshiomhole has become an Antelope because he is the National Chairman of a ruling party, Its now a ruling party because they told Nigerian lies.”
“Let Oshiomhole come out and tell us his background except that he became a Governor through a dubious way and that was what led to the amendment of the electoral act that says Governorship matter in terms of the election will not end at the Court of Appeal but will get to the Supreme court. I have become a Local Government Chairman, Chief of Staff, a Minister and a Governor and by the Grace of God a second time serving Governor.”
“Oshiomhole has the audacity to say nobody will be sworn in In Bayelsa State causing crisis in the country and nobody wants to call him to order but for people like us in Rivers State. Oshiomhole came from the background of an armed robber to steal the vote of Rivers people and we defended our vote and Oshiomhole is ashamed that we defended our vote and we still defend our vote till tomorrow. “
“Rivers State is not like his State Edo where he can talk to anybody the way he likes. This should be the last time, Oshiomhole should open his mouth and talk to anybody in Rivers State, we are not at the same level in terms of education.”
“Rivers State is not like Edo state where you bring down a sitting Governor because he wants to install another Governor. It depends on the people of Edo State to allow that, but for Rivers State we not allow anybody who wants to be a godfather.”
