Rift between Wike and Obaseki Deepens

●Wike describes Obaseki as a serial betrayer

●Says Oshiomole warned him

The rift between Governor Godwin Obaseki and Governor Nyesom Wike has taken a new twist as the Rivers governor has fired back at his Edo State counterpart.

Addressing a crowd at an event on Monday in Rivers State, Governor Wike accused Governor Obaseki of betrayal and ingratitude.

He alleged that the Edo governor 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, however, apologised to a former national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, whom he said had initially warned them about accepting Governor Obaseki into the PDP fold.

“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.”

“Obaseki said I’m a bully, but he came to beg a bully for ticket. A bully was his campaign DG, and a bully bullied him into Edo state government house”

“It didn’t end there, he still came back with his wife to thank the bully after the election. I slept in Edo State for three days just to deliver Obaseki, but today, I’m a bully”

“If you check the DNA of Obaseki, what you’ll see is betrayal, serial betrayal and ungratefulness. He said I threatened PDP, assuming without conceding that I threatened PDP, I have every right to do so, I have invested in the party. Rivers State has invested in the party”

“Rivers State is one of the few states that has voted PDP since 1999, we have invested in the party. You’re a tenant in PDP, I have more stake in PDP than you”

“You said I’m causing crisis in Edo state. I have capacity, that is why I’m causing crisis. I challenge you to come and cause crisis in Rivers state, then you’ll know who is who”

“Obaseki, I know your cohorts, I will smoke all of you out. Obaseki, I challenge you to defect back to the APC, we’ll shave your head. I know those using you, if I decide to run for President, I will win all of you”
