Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has described Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming Edo Governorship Election, as a bad product that won’t sell during the election on September 19, 2020.
Wike noted that the ex-National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, who told Edo people that Ize-Iyamu was rusticated from school after pouring acid on his fellow student and an armed robber who cannot be trusted with money, now wants Edo people to vote for the same Ize-Iyamu.
Wike noted that Oshiomhole’s sudden support for Iyamu was an insult to the people of Edo State. He urged Edo people to vote against Oshiomhole to show him they cannot take his lies anymore.
“Adams Oshiomhole told Edo people that Ize-Iyamu was rusticated from school, that he poured acid on a fellow student which destroyed his manhood; that he is an armed robber that cannot be trusted with money. Such a character cannot be accepted by Edo people as governor during the election.
“I respect the Benin tradition and I know that Edo people are educated to know that Oshiomhole cannot play on their intelligence. If he is now retracting what he said about Ize-Iyamu, who is sure that he’s saying the correct thing now?”
“Adams Oshiomhole’s sudden U-turn is a great insult to Edo people. This is an opportunity for Edo people both at home and in the Diaspora to use their votes to tell Oshiomhole that they cannot take his lies anymore.”
APC however in its reaction to Wike’s statement noted that the bad product was the PDP and its band of tax collectors.
“The real bad product is the dying PDP and its band of tax-collectors as described by the same man, Governor Nyesom Wike, who alerted the world to how the leaders of his party sold its ticket to Mr. Godwin Obaseki.
“They are stuck with a man they roundly condemned as a failure. The verdict of the PDP on the third anniversary of Obaseki’s administration is available for all to read.
