Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has lambasted his Edo State counterpart, Godwin Obaseki, describing him as a serial betrayer and ungrateful person.
Wike said this while responding to Obaseki’s diatribes against him in an adversorial earlier on Monday morning.
The whole situation started when Wike while speaking at the inauguration of the Eastern Bypass Road in Port Harcourt lambasted Edo State, Deputy Governor, Philips Shaibu asking who’s his father?
Asking him what audacity he has to threaten the PDP on television.
Obaseki while responding said he will not accept political bullies and overlords, saying Wike should have taken a cue from the way the national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, responded to Shaibu’s remarks.
He collaborated Shaibu’s complaint that “the leaders, executives and members” who defected along with him from the All Progressives Congress (APC) have not been accepted, integrated and harmonised into the Edo PDP.
Responding back to Obaseki, Wike said Obaseki has shown the party his true color.
He maintained that the Edo Governor’s ‘’former godfather’’ and former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomole, had been vindicated.
He tendered an unreserved apology to Oshiomole for ignoring his warnings about Obaseki saying everything Oshiomole said about the character of the Edo Governor had come to pass.
Wike said, “If you ask anybody or check the DNA of Obaseki, you will discover that he is a serial betrayer and an ungrateful person.
“I apologise to Oshiomole who told us about Obaseki. You have been vindicated.”
