Wike recently revealed that the forum has lost focus on its role in defending the rule of law in Nigeria.
According to him, the forum used to be very powerful but APC has killed it because they are currently protecting the interest of the ruling party.
He added that APC feels they can do anything and get away with it because they have the Army, Police, and INEC on their side, but he hopes the people of Edo State will say no to their impunity.
His words, “Before 2015, the Governors Forum used to be very powerful and symbols of their respective states but APC killed it because they were protecting the interest of the ruling party.
“During one of the re-run elections in this state, my security aides were withdrawn thus exposing me to danger, the Forum did not say anything because the chairman was a member of APC.
“I told them then that what they were doing was wrong. Now they have become beggars Forum even when there are constitutional infractions. You can see that APC Governors say that they are progressive. You can see how progressive they are when they keep quiet when a fellow sitting governor is disqualified from contesting election.
“Adams Oshiomhole, APC national chaieman campaigned for Governor Godwin Obaseki four years ago. The same man has turned around to say that Obaseki has a defective certificate.
“Has Oshiomhole apologised to Nigerians that he supported someone with a defective certificate? Who is saying that a sitting governor has a defective certificate? Is it a man that does not have a certificate?
“Oshiomhole should be told to practice what he preaches. APC wants to perpetrate impunity in Edo State the way they unleashed terror on Rivers State in 2019.
“They think because they have the Army, Police and INEC, they can do anything and get away with it. They tried it in Rivers State but God gave us the will to say no. I hope Edo people will also say no to their impunity.”
On Obaseki, “Edo PDP has a role to play. There is nothing like endorsement. But I must tell you that I am not happy the way he was disqualified by the APC because it will affect his integrity.”
