Speaking on a live programme on Wednesday, Wike said Oshiomhole making a u-turn to back Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu was an insult to Edo people.
In a statement by his Commissioner for Information and Communications, Pastor Paulinus Nsirim, the Rivers governor stated that Governor Godwin Obaseki has no opponent in Edo election.
Wike, who is chairman of the PDP National Campaign Council, said: “Such a character cannot be accepted by Edo people as Governor during the election.
“I respect the Benin tradition and I know that Edo people are educated to know that Oshiomhole cannot play on their intelligence.
“If he is now retracting what he said of Ize Iyamu, who is sure that he’s saying the correct thing now.
“Adams Oshiomole’s sudden u- turn is a great insult on Edo people. This is an opportunity for Edo people both at home and in the diaspora to use their votes to tell Oshiomole they cannot take his lies anymore.
“From all indications, it is obvious that there is no strong opposition against Obaseki and he will win convincingly”.
