Temidayo Akinsuyi, Lagos

Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike of Rivers State on Saturday said he was shocked by the comments made by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on the political crisis rocking Edo state.

He also said former Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole does not have the moral standing to tell Edo people not to vote for Governor Godwin Obaseki.

Governor Wike who is also the Chairman of PDP National Campaign Council for the Edo 2020 Governorship Election said the purported issue of secondary school certificate does not hold water.

He was reacting to comments by Oshiomhole during the flag off of the APC Governorship Campaign in Edo State.

The Governor berated the former APC National Chairman for his continued claims that Governor Obaseki is not a graduate even when the University of Ibadan has affirmed that he graduated from the institution.

Governor Wike challenged Oshiomhole to present his academic certificate to Edo people rather than advising them to shun a candidate he claimed to be the brainbox of his administration’s achievements.

“The certificate claims about Governor Obaseki by the former APC National Chairman is a non-issue because he is the best candidate for Edo State.

“It is unfortunate that we are in a country that somebody that does not have a certificate will question the one that has.

“Oshiomhole has trade test which is not an academic qualification. I challenge him to show the world his academic qualification.

“This same man he said has three credits was his brainbox when he was in government. So is it not better for Edo people to support a man that has three credits than to follow someone whom he said was a cultist and fake pastor who destroyed the manhood of his fellow man.

“Oshiomhole is trying to tell Edo people whatever he decides is what will be and this is an opportunity for Edo people to say no.

“His claim that if APC losses the election they will secure the mandate through the courts is a total confirmation that the Party cannot win the Edo election through the ballot box.

Securing victory through the courts will be null and void as there are still Judges in Nigeria with conscience who cannot dance to the tune of the APC,” he stated.

On the claims that President Muhammadu Buhari endorsed the APC Governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, Governor Wike challenged APC supporters to show evidence where the President announced that he has endorsed a man who is facing corruption charges of the EFCC.

He said the absence of the President and Vice President at the flag off of the APC Governorship campaign is a confirmation that he does not have their support.

On the comments by the former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu that the action of Governor Obaseki on the Edo State House of Assembly crisis was wrong, Governor Wike stated that he was surprised at his comments.

“Tinubu is one man that I have great respect for so when I read the papers, I was taken aback. It is unfortunate that members that were not inaugurated can turn around to illegally impeach people.

“What Governor Obaseki did is what any Chief Security officer should do. It is justifiable in order to avoid chaos,” he added.

When Atiku Abubakar publicly showed support for Obaseki's moves as per the state assembly issue, APC people didn't make a fuss about it so what's with this issue over Tinubu's comments?

Sometimes I wonder if this can happen in a developed country. Why do we always behave like rascals especially when it comes to election in Nigeria ?

APC really goofed on this one.

Lol.

Now here comes the syllogism.

1. We have great respect for Wike~ ipob lunatics

2. I have great respect for Tinubu ~ Wike

(Meaning Wike look up to Tinubu while ipob lunatics look up to Wike).

3. Therefore, Tinubu is an imaginary model to ipob miscreants. They are not qualified to look up to him. They can only look up to who looks up to Tinubu. undecided

Tinubu is one man that I have great respect for so when I read the papers,

Notice how Emperor Wike stylishly faced the issue at hand, confirms his respect for Asiwaju.
Yet, some inconsequentials think he is not worthy of his feat. They keep asking what 'National Leader' stands to control, forgetting the position only complements his great strive, stand and accomplishments in politics.


I was taken aback.

If you feel it's right to deny them of their democratic right, then you would be worse off as a dictator. But, since such is not obtainable in Rivers state, I will conclude you are only try to justify your position as the Chairman of PDP National Campaign Council for the Edo 2020 Governorship Election.


Should we also get some shock absorbers for Emperor Wike?

Please we the masses need to declare total lockdown on political movements, the shock Pandemic is spreading faster than we ever thought. Shock/Buhari disease has been recorded in PDP, anyone who ever had contact with any of the infected persons should endeavor to electrocute his/her self.

It's better to be electrocuted than to be shocked.
