Bayelsa: Don’t destabilise Niger Delta, Wike warns Oshiomhole



Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike on Thursday warned All Progressives Congress National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole to avoid causing a crisis in Bayelsa State with unguarded comments.

He was reacting to Oshiomhole’s threat that the Peoples Democratic Party’s governorship candidate Duoye Diri would not be inaugurated as governor on Friday after the Supreme Court voided the election of APC’s David Lyon over the presentation of forged certificates by his running mate, Diego Eremienyo.

Wike, who was clearly miffed at Oshiomhole’s comments in the aftermath of the Supreme Court judgment, said in a statement: “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.

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 believes that he has the forces to cause crisis. He is arrogating powers to himself, which is not good .

Oshiomhole would not be allowed to destroy the Niger Delta. The rule of law must continue to prevail at all times.”
