Wike said Oshiomhole has no power to stop Diri Douye’s swearing-in as governor of Bayelsa State.

Recall that the Supreme Court had yesterday sacked David Lyon as Bayelsa State Governor-elect.

The apex court also declared Douye Diri of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, winner of the last governorship election in the state.

Displeased by the ruling, Oshiomhole had vowed that nobody will be sworn-in as Bayelsa State governor because Lyon of the APC had the highest number of votes.

Reacting to Oshiomhole’s remark, Wike urged the federal government to call Oshiomhole to order.

Describing Oshiomhole’s remark as inflammatory, Wike said such comment is capable of destabilising Nigeria.

In a statement released by his Special Assistant on electronic media, Simeon Nwakaudu.

He said: “Who is Oshiomhole to determine who has spread in a state? Supreme Court has made a ruling. It is unfortunate for Oshiomhole to come forward to say that nobody will be sworn in.

“He believes that he has the forces to cause crisis. He is arrogating powers to himself, which is not good “
