The Deputy Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Ehie Edison, has responded to the comments made by the Governor of Kano State and Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Edo State Campaign Council, Abdullahi Ganduje, against the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, .
Recall, that Ganduje threatened to ‘isolate’ Wike, who was recently appointed the Chairman of the Edo State Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, National Campaign Council.
Speaking to the Press, on Monday, Ganduje also stated that the PDP Governorship Candidate and current Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, will be ‘humiliated’ out of Office.
Edison, in a statement on Monday night, disclosed: “We shall chop your dollars and choke you into coma, within the confines of the law.
“The Governor of Kano State flanked by his team of Edo State APC Governorship Campaign Council in a Media Briefing, has threatened to isolate our Leader and Principal, Governor Wike, into an Isolation Centre, until the election is over.
“Gov. Ganduje intermittently used the word “assurance”, to explain his level of confidence and premeditated plans to put Gov. Wike in harm’s way, within the context of his declaration. To isolate means to set apart, to insulate, to quarantine, to select from among others, to keep a person separate from others, by keeping them somewhere else, or putting them in a different place, to separate someone from its connect. Thus, If anything unusual happens to Gov. Wike, Nigerians know the door to knock.
“Ganduje of Kano State, not better than Hushpuppi, is known for his lowly kickback practice of receiving bribe of surpluses from Contractors and Multinational companies in dollars, with irrefutable evidence, but alas, Nigeria is a country where any corrupt Politician receives redemption under the APC.
“In the categorisation of Governors, Gov. Wike is ranked as First Class, by Nigerians, unlike the infamous Gandollars of Kano, who has reduced governance to a mere Boys’ Scout, running an administration of misplaced priorities, and sending the ancient Kano State three decades backwards.
“On the other hand, Gov. Wike of Rivers State, has proven to Nigerians to be a Leader who is transparent in the management of resources, people, and project-driven, experienced in governance and leadership, God-fearing in all ramifications.
“Nigerians see Gov. Wike as the current Face of Democracy and Hope of a better united Nigeria devoid of ethnic or religious sentiments. If there is one outstanding quality of Gov .Wike is his Fearless nature, ready to confront any threat or danger, he threads where men shiver and walks where men scamper. Wike is not your regular guy. Gov. Wike will lead PDP campaign in Edo State, and no evil will befall him. No weapon planned against him shall prosper.
“He that diggeth a pit against him shall fall into it. From the left to the right, you shall all stumble and fall, because Power comes from our God Almighty. As Nelson Mandela is to South Africa, so is Gov. Wike to PDP, Rivers State and Nigeria. We shall choke you and your plans to coma, howbeit, within the confines of the Law.”
