While speaking to media today, Wike stated that Oshiomhole and the APC should forget it because they would never succeed in taking over political power from PDP in Rivers State.
According to him, the worst form of armed robbery is when you steal people’s mandate, and this is something Oshiomhole is known for.
He added that he is happy with the way the Supreme Court has taught the APC leader a bitter lesson with their recent ruling.
His words, “This is a country where you see people who do not have character. Today they sing a song, tomorrow they sing another. I think Oshiomhole as National Chairman of APC is not a character anybody should associate with.
“First, I have never been violent, will never be. However, when you see an armed robber come to your house, will you plead with the robber and say I beg you, leave my house. People think armed robbers are only those who cart away people’s money.
“The worst form of armed robbery is when you steal people’s mandate, like Oshiomhole is noted for. He thinks because he’s in the ruling party, he can use security to steal the mandate of the people. He was taught a lesson, a bitter lesson and I want to repeat, if you come to steal our mandate, the people will respond accordingly.
“They will oppose your stealing of their mandate and so Oshiomhole thinks because he is in the ruling party nobody should say anything or do anything. Stealing is not only when you go to rob a bank. The worse form of armed robbery is when you steal the mandate of the people”
“When Jonathan made sure elections were free and fair, Oshiomhole came to the Villa and thanked Jonathan. When Jonathan left office, one of the reason I don’t go to NEC meeting is because of Oshiomhole when he was yet a member.
“When Jonathan left, there was no day at the NEC meeting Oshiomhole will not bring Jonathan down. Meanwhile, that was the same man Oshiomhole went to praise for allowing one man one vote. The man left and Oshiomhole changed. That is his character.”
“Nigerians know one matter that led to the amendment of the electoral act where Governorship election has to go to the Supreme Court is because of Oshiomhole matter. So he cannot come out and say he was clean in terms of electoral process. That will be very bad.
“Oshiomhole said he fought godfatherism and the same time he wants to install himself as a godfather in Edo state. Why is he fighting Obaseki, because the man doesn’t take instruction from him. He preaches what he doesn’t practice.”
“Oshiomhole said he fought godfatherism and the same time he wants to install himself as a godfather in Edo state. Why is he fighting Obaseki, because the man doesn’t take instruction from him. He preaches what he doesn’t practice. ”
“I will not be a member of their (APC) party. I have always been PDP and they know that. Oshiomhole knows his party didn’t even score up to 25 per cent in my state. He cannot tell me that. Oshiomhole has nothing to say about me. His party is probing him about the so-called hospital he says he built. I am not the one.
“Shame should be on him that at the end of the day the PDP Candidate has been sworn in as governor of Bayelsa. You can’t come out and open your mouth and say it will never happen. Now it has happened. If I were him I will resign, leave. I am not his friend, so he cannot say, my friend.
“All he is doing today is because the governors and some leaders of the party are saying this man cannot lead our party. Oshiomhole has failed. He is a man who opens his mouth anyhow. And this should be his last time, the moment he goes further he will know that Rivers is not what he thinks it is.”
