Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State who doubles as the chairman of the National Campaign Council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has stated that the upcoming Edo governorship election in September is not between Godwin Obaseki and Osagie Ize-Iyamu, but the former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole who takes the election as a matter of life and death, because he is seeking a third term in office, illegally.

Wike made this assertion at a media briefing in Port Harcourt, on Monday where he alleged that Oshiomhole does not want to allow Ize-Iyamu carry out his campaign as the would-be governor.

Wike said, “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.


“So, he takes it as a do-or-die matter. He knows that losing this election, he is entirely 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.”
