Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Nyesom Wike, has openly admitted the need for him to apologise to former Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, Adam Oshiomhole saying he has been vindicated over Governor of Edo State Gowdin Obaseki.
Wike, who was speaking at a community secondary school in Ikwere Local Government Area of the state, said Obaseki is a serial traitor.
There have been exchange of words between both governors over the control of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.
He described Obaseki as a politician who is given to serial betrayal of whoever assist in his political
His words were contained in a press statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri.
He said, “If you go and check the DNA of Godwin Obaseki, what you will see in that DNA is serial betrayal and ungratefulness. 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 and the ungratefulness of Godwin Obaseki.
“So, let me apologise to Adams Oshiomhole and to say you have been vindicated. You were right, we were wrong. I have never seen people who are so ungrateful in life. I have never seen people who can betray everything in life.”
He added, “I have invested in the party, Rivers State has invested in the party. We have voted for the PDP since 1999 till now. Ask Governor Obaseki, has he done anything for the PDP?
“Has he voted for the PDP? The only election he voted was his own election when we gave him umbrella. So who has more stakes in the PDP? I have more stakes because I have supported the PDP always.
“You have never supported the PDP, rather it was when your godfather chased you away and you came begging, kneeling down. People came with pressure and we allowed you. Ordinarily, you are a tenant.”
Wike said he invested so much in the PDP adding that the crisis in the party in Edo State today was caused by Obaseki.
The governor called on the National Working Committee of the party to dissolve the Edo executive.
