Bayelsa Supreme Court judgement: Warn Oshiomhole, Gov Wike tells FG
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has called on the Federal Government to warn the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress ( APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to stop making inflammatory remarks capable of destabilising the country.
Governor Wike also slammed the APC National Chairman for saying that there will be no swearing-in of the PDP Candidate in Bayelsa State, saying he has no such powers.
Recall that the candidate of the All progressive congress in Bayelsa, David Lyon was sack while the Peoples Democratic party candidate Duoye Diri was declared Governor by the Supreme court on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Mr Oshiomhole said Thursday that the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Duoye Diri’s votes did not have enough spread as required by the Constitution to be elected governor.
But the Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike said, Thursday evening, that Mr Oshiomhole’s remarks was “capable of destabilising the country”.
Mr Wike, in a statement from his media aide, Simeon Nwakaudu, asked the federal government to warn the APC national chairman against making “inflammatory” remarks.
Mr Wike said Mr Oshiomhole has no power to declare that Mr Diri would not be sworn in as Bayelsa’s governor.
“The federal government should warn Oshiomhole to stop making remarks that will destabilise Nigeria.
“What he is doing in Edo State is not proper and he should not bring it to the rest of the Niger Delta,” the governor said.
“Who is Oshiomhole to determine who has spread in a state? Supreme Court has made a ruling. It is unfortunate for Oshiomhole to come forward to say that nobody will be sworn in.
“It is most unfortunate what Oshiomhole is doing because he wants to retain his position as National Chairman. APC Governors have rejected him, that is why he is struggling to prove that he is fighting for the party.
“He is making statements as if he owns the country. This is the same way he is carrying on in Edo State fighting the Governor.
“He believes that he has the forces to cause crisis. He is arrogating powers to himself, which is not good,” the governor said.
