Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has described his Edo State counterpart as ungrateful and a betrayal.
Wike stated this while addressing a crowd at an event on Monday in Rivers State.
Gov.Wike alleged that Obaseki has refused to be grateful to the party and the people who supported him to be re-elected when he left the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Governor Wike apologized to a former National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, who had warned the PDP about accepting Governor Obaseki into the party.
Wike said, “If you check the DNA of Obaseki, what you will see in that DNA is betrayal, serial betrayal, and ungratefulness,” he said while addressing a crowd at the commissioning of a secondary school in Omuanwa community, Rivers State.
“Let me stand today to apologise to Adams Oshiomhole who has been vindicated by telling us that we will see the true colour, the insincerity, the ungratefulness of Governor Obaseki.
“We have voted for PDP since 1999 till now; ask Governor Obaseki if he has done anything for PDP (or) voted for PDP. The only election he voted was his own election – where we gave him an umbrella.”
“Let me clearly say without any apology to anybody that one of the problems in this country is leadership – people who cannot stand firm and say: this is white; this is black at all times,” the Rivers governor said.
“I am not in the class of Obaseki, never! We are not the same, we can’t be the same. I was the DG of his campaign, I went there (to Edo) for three days. I stayed there without having my bath. I have never seen somebody like that in my life – a serial betrayer.
“Let me tell you Obaseki, I know your cohorts and I will smoke all of you out. This is not the Benin artefact that you were challenging the Oba (of Benin), this is politics. Obaseki, I have more stake in PDP than you. I have fought for this party, mention one thing that you have done for the PDP.” the Rivers State Governor stated.
