Wike has a lot to learn from Oshiomhole says APC

20 September 2016, 14:27

Port Harcourt - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has urged Governor Nyesom Wike to emulate his counterpart in Edo, Adams Oshiomhole, by increasing and paying workers wages regularly.

A statement issued in Port Harcourt on Monday by Davies Ikanya, the APC Chairman in Rivers, said that Edo, which was not economically buoyant like Rivers, was not owing workers.

“Wike has a lot to learn from Edo; the government does not only pay her workers but went ahead to increase the minimum wage from N18,000 to N25 000.

“Edo is a state that is not economically viable like Rivers but Oshiomhole does not owe workers while Wike is yet to pay workers for several months,” he said.

Ikanya also lamented the plight of pensioners who he said were being owed at a time the state government was hosting different clubs and associations.

News 24 has reported that Wike and Oshiomhole have been attacking each other ahead of the September 28 governorship election in the state.

Oshiomhole had accused Wike of giving N2b to the Edo PDP governorship candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

Wike replied Oshiomhole by calling him an habitual and perpetual liar who knew that PDP would win the Edo State governorship election.

Oshiomhole fired back at Wike , saying that he cannot be mentioned in the league of true men because he owes salaries and emoluments.
