'Pay your workers’ salaries' - Oshiomhole tells Wike | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, on Friday told his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike, to pay workers’ salaries before “squandering the people’s lean resources” on the Edo State governorship election.



Oshiomhole said it was laughable that Wike talked about governance when he has been unable to pay his state workers’ salaries for several months.

He advised Wike to spend the money meant for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) election campaign in Edo State to pay backlog of salaries owed civil servants in River State.

Speaking through the state Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Prince Kassim Afegbua, Oshiomhole said there was no reason why Wike would expend the people’s resources on Edo election out of sheer desperation to acquire regional powers.

“In the circle of governance, where men are truly called men, someone like Governor Wike cannot muster any courage to be called a man when he has continuously held Rivers workers in scorn without paying them their due salaries and emoluments.

“Even though Edo State is not economically viable as Rivers State, we do not only pay our workers’ salaries, we have since increased our workers’ minimum wages from N18, 000 to N25, 000.

“That this salary increase is happening at a time when Governor Wike is lamenting over paucity of funds, should explain in greater details our uncommon creativity and prudent management of resources.

“The last time we visited Rivers State, we were appalled by the plights of Rivers workers whose lamentations Governor Wike has consistently ignored. Our piece of advice to him as a younger brother was to properly guide him so he doesn’t go astray by the temptations of an election that his party is bound to lose. “

“Rather than waste Rivers people’s money in Edo State, keep Rivers people’s money for them. He should be reminded that Edo voters are not gullible like voters elsewhere and their level of sophistication would make the September 28 election a smooth sail for the All Progressives Congress. It is our responsibility to caution Governor Wike before he exports his gangsterism to Edo State.”

  1. Oshiomole are you not owing civil servant their salaries??? One thing I know Oshiomole want to do next is pay workers salaries by 25th and 27th so calm voters and paint him good for APC election. Hence their reasons for postponing the election. One thing for sure is that Edo people are not foolish and blind. You have failed them so get ready to park your load and leave the office for Pastor Osagie Ize_Iyamu. As governor of Edo State.

  2. Frank talk from the comrade governor Baba Oshiomole.
    I love the last statement, listen: IT IS OUR RESPOSIBILITY TO CAUTION WIKED WIKE BEFORE HE EXPORT HIS GANGSTERISM TO EDO STATE.
    It will be recalled that Edo state has been peaceful before now.
    Edolite are a lot wiser than Rivers people in terms of relationship amongst the various Local government in Edo state.
    The bad stories of killings in Rivers state can never surface in Edo.
    Edoans are very much open eye compare to Rivers.
    In Edo people believe that politics and politicking are left for politicians.
    In Rivers state everybody is a politician and every thing is politics, shameless people.
    So rich but so very poor both in brain and in pocket.
    They prefer sorting and get certificate in their higher institution of learning than working hard to earn a certificate that is defendable.
    SHAME ON WIKED WIKE AND HIS BLIND FOLLOWERS
