If Buhari wants free & fare election in Edo state, it will be free & fare, & i will join Governor Obaseki to thank him - wike

Once you have a godfather who determines everything, the governor will not concentrate in governance Wike to Oshiomhole

Obaseki is already a governor & the Edo people know him, they know all he had done

 

River state governor, Nyesom Wike, while speaking with newsmen from channelstv, has urged president Buhari to allow a free and fare election in Edo state. The governor also said that president Buhari can use the forth coming Edo election as a test to democracy. Allowing one man one vote. And vowed to join governor Obaseki and others members of the People’s Democratic Party to thank the president after the election, just as Oshiomhole did with former president Goodluck Jonathan.


The interview party read......

I have told you that, the issue in this Edo election, as I speak to you now, is to determine one thing, and that one thing is.... should we allow godfatherism to continue, what am trying to say is that, it has never helped, once you have a godfather who determines everything, the person will not concentrate in governance . But the point l'm trying to say, about selling yourself to the people, he is (Godwin Obaseki) already a governor, it’s not as if he’s coming in, the Edo people know him, they know all he had done, but I can even tell you what will play out in this Edo election, people with integrity, people who have conscience, people who can say, look... this is what I said in the morning, this is what I’ll say in the afternoon.

If Mr President want this election to be free and fare, it will be free and fare, how? He will tell me I want to use this as a test case to democracy, when Oshiomhole wins second tenure, Oshiomhole came to Aso Villa and thanked Mr Jonathan, the former president , “ Dr Jonathan I thank you for Democracy in Edo, I thank you for allowing , one man one vote, I thank you for allowing one youth , one vote, I thank you for allowing one woman , one vote. So what is wrong now if Mr President say there will be democracy , Edo people must vote? We will join Obaseki too and go and tell Mr President, ‘thank you for allowing democracy to take place, for allowing one man, one vote’ that is what we want, asJonathan allowedfree and fare election in Edo state, Mr President should also allow free and fare election that will make Nigerian to be happy. That is what we are trying to say.
