Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike says former Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole does not have the moral standing to tell Edo people not to vote for Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Wike, who is also the Chairman of PDP National Campaign Council for the Edo 2020 Governorship Election, said the purported issue of secondary school certificate does not hold water.
According to a statement signed by the Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Paulinus Nsirim, the governor was reacting to comments by Oshiomhole during the flag off of the APC Governorship Campaign in Edo State.
The governor berated the former APC National Chairman for his continued claims that Governor Obaseki is not a graduate even when the University of Ibadan has affirmed that he graduated from the institution.
Wike challenged Oshiomhole to present his academic certificate to Edo people rather than advising them to shun a candidate he claimed to be the brainbox of his administration’s achievements.
“The certificate claims about Governor Obaseki by the former APC National Chairman is a non-issue because he is the best candidate for Edo State.
“It is unfortunate that we are in a country that somebody that does not have a certificate will question the one that has.
“Oshiomhole has trade test which is not an academic qualification. I challenge him to show the world his academic qualification.
“This same man he said has three credits was his brainbox when he was in government. So is it not better for Edo people to support a man that has three credits than to follow someone whom he said was a cultist and fake pastor who destroyed the manhood of his fellow man.
