“Serial Betrayer And Ungrateful Person” – Wike Lambastes Obaseki, Apologizes To Oshiomhole

 The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has lambasted the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, describing him as a serial betrayer and ungrateful person.

Wike while unleashing words against the Edo State Governor said former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomole who warned him about Obaseki’s behavior has been vindicated. Naija News recalls both Wike and Obaseki have been involved in a war of words over the crisis plaguing the Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Wike had on Saturday castigated the Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu for threatening that some of his supporters may dump the PDP over unresolved issues in the state chapter of the party. But in defense of his deputy, Obaseki in a statement sent on Naija News on Monday and signed by his spokesman, Crusoe Osagie, described the attack against Shaibu as most unfortunate and uncalled for. The governor urged the national leadership of the PDP to call Wike to order, stating that the opposition party is not his personal property. Wike in his latest outburst on Monday where he responded to the Edo State Governor, said he had been warned but ignored the warnings about the character of Obaseki. Speaking at an event in Rivers State on Monday, Wike said he regrets supporting Obaseki in the Edo 2020 governorship election, describing him as the most ungrateful person he has met in his lifetime. He added that he has personally invested in PDP and his state has also contributed resources to the well-being of the party but he denied threatening the party. Wike challenged Obaseki to unveil what he has done for the party since joining the PDP after he was shown the exit door in APC. “If you go and check the DNA of Obaseki, what you will see in that DNA is betrayal, serial betrayal, and ungratefulness,” Wike said. “Let me stand today to apologize to Adams Oshiomhole who has been vindicated by telling us that we will see the true color, we will see the insincerity, we will see the ungratefulness of Governor Obaseki. “Let me apologize to Adams Oshiomhole to say you have been vindicated. You are right, we are wrong. “I have never seen people who are so ungrateful in life. I will never betray any man. What is my DNA is sincerity, consistency, and teamwork. “Assuming, though not conceding, I threatened the party, I have invested in the party. Rivers state has invested in the party. “We have voted for PDP since 1999 till now; ask Governor Obaseki — has he done anything for PDP? Has he voted for PDP? The only election he voted for was his election where we gave him an umbrella. “So who has more stake in PDP? I have more stake because I have supported PDP always. You have never supported PDP, rather it was when your godfather chased you away, that you came begging.” On the tag of a bully slammed on him by Obaseki, Wike said the Edo State Governor didn’t see him as a bully when he came begging for the PDP ticket or when he came to appreciate him with his wife after winning the polls. “You came to beg a bully for you to have a ticket. A bully was your DG campaign and a bully bullied you into government house. You came back with your wife to thank the bully,” he added. “People say it is politics. It is only politics that exposes human beings to know their character.”
