The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has claimed that the entire south south region of the country remains the stronghold of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), even as he challenged Edo peoples not to vote for any candidate presented by the former chairman of All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomole.
Speaking in Benin at the weekend during the flagoff of the PDP governorship campaign, Wike slammed Oshiomole for making a u-turn, by presenting a candidate, Ize-Iyamu Osagie, whom he previously castigated.
Wike, who is Chairman of the PDP National Campaign Council for the election, said: “Former national Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole is making a u-turn to lick his vomit by presenting a candidate he earlier rejected and castigated.
“Four years ago, Adams Oshiomhole said he cannot trust the APC governorship candidate, that he was rusticated from school.
“Today, Oshiomhole is coming back to present the same person to Edo people. He thinks Edo people are fools. I challenge Edo people not to vote for any person presented to them by Oshiomhole.”
