Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has stated that the forthcoming Governorship Election in Edo State is a do-or-die election for Adams Oshiomhole, the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Oshiomhole knows that the outcome of the forthcoming poll would determine whether he will remain in politics or not, adding that losing Edo State would be the end of his political career since he has been decimated in the APC national leadership.
“The best he (Oshiomhole) could do is to lay low and let Ize-Iyamu campaign. You can see that if Ize-Iyamu talks for two minutes, Oshiomhole will talk for 20 minutes because he knows this election will determine whether he will remain in politics or not,” Wike said at a media briefing in Port Harcourt on Monday.
“So, he takes it as a do-or-die matter. He knows that losing this election, he is completely out. He has been decimated in the APC national leadership. So, the only thing now is to hold Edo to see that anyhow they treat him in Abuja, he has where to fall back to.
“Now Obaseki is winning, Abuja does not want him, Edo does not want him. So, he has nowhere to go to. This third term agenda is trying to run and Edo people must resist him,” Governor Wike who is the Chairman of the PDP Campaign Council in Edo State said.
