Now Diri Is governor, Oshiomhole should resign — Wike

He declared that the embattled National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole and his associates wanted to steal the mandate of Rivers people, but were strongly resisted, hence Oshiomhole’s bitterness towards Rivers State. 

Wike stressed that under no circumstances would Rivers people allow Oshiomhole and his associates to steal their mandate.He said: “This is a country where you find people with no character. Today, they sing a particular song; tomorrow they sing another song. I think Oshiomhole as APC National Chairman is not a character that anybody should associate with… “People think that armed robbers are only those who cart away people’s money. The worst form of armed robbery is when you steal people’s mandate…
