Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike has revealed that he stopped attending the National Economic Meeting in Abuja because of Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the All Progressive Congress, who was a member of the Economic Council at the time by virtue of his position as governor.
Speaking with journalists at the Rivers state government house on Saturday, he said Oshiomhole would always use the avenue to bring Jonathan down when he had earlier gone to thank him for conducting a credible election that made him governor.
When Jonathan left office, one of the reasons why I didn’t go to NEC meeting was because of Oshiomhole when he was a member. When Jonathan left, there was no day at the NEC meeting Oshiomhole would not bring Jonathan down.
“Meanwhile, this was the same man Oshiomhole went to praise for allowing ‘one man, one vote’. But when the man (Jonathan) left, Oshiomhole changed. That is his character.”
