Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has slammed the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate for the September 19 election in the state, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, saying he was rejected in 2016 because the people of the state saw that he will not make a good leader.
Recall that Ize-Iyamu, who contested on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) four years ago was defeated by Obaseki who was the APC candidate then.
However, Wike, in a tweet on his official Twitter handle, also said that the Edo election is not an ‘Obaseki election’ but for the people of the South-South.
He said: “There would be no intimidation in the Edo election, the people must choose who they want. All the South-South Governors would be in Edo State to support our brother Governor.
“Edo people rejected Ize Iyamu in the last election because they saw he wouldn’t be a good Governor. Edo election is not an Obaseki election but for the people of the South-South. It is time for the South-South to speak with one voice.”
