EDO GUBER: Gov Wike Challenges Oshiomole To Present His Academic Certificates
The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has challenged the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole to publicize his academic qualifications.
Recall that before APC primary election in Edo state, Adam Oshiomole has earlier denied the current Governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki re-election over some errors he pointed out in his certificates.
This Oshiomole’s action has in turn triggered the defection of the governor to the opposition part PDP.
Ever since then, the Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike has taken it as a personal assignment to ensure that his new counterpart gets re-elected.
In a statement by the governor through his commissioner for Information and Communications, Paulinus Nsirim, said that the former National Chairman of the APC has no moral standing to question his successor’s qualification, since he (Oshiomole) has only but a ‘trade test grade’ to present.
“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” he said.
The governor also condemn the statement made by the former chairman of APC that if APC loses the election he would secure the mandate through appeals to courts.
“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 loses 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,” Wike said.
“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,” Wike said.
