Wike Regrets Working For Obaseki’s Reelection, Apologises To Oshiomhole
Rivers State governor Nyesom Wike on Wednesday apologised to former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.
Wike apologised to Oshiomhole at the inauguration of the Rumuepirikom Flyover in the Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of the state.
“We are now friends, let bygones be bygones,” Wike said addressing Oshiomhole.
The Rivers State governor said he regretted working for the reelection of Edo State governor Godwin Obaseki in September 2020.
Wike, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) fell out with Obaseki earlier in 2022.
Obaseki and Wike have been at loggerheads amid a crisis rocking the PDP as the former backed PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar whilst Wike continued to demand the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu as a precondition to support Atiku’s presidential ambition for 2023.
The Rivers governor apologised to Oshiomhole for not believing him when he said Obaseki will show his true colour after he joins the PDP.
Wike alleged that Obaseki was ungrateful to the party and the people who supported him to be re-elected when he left the All Progressives Congress (APC). He went ahead to apologise to Oshiomole saying,
“If you check the DNA of Obaseki, what you will see in that DNA is betrayal, serial betrayal, and ungrathefulness,” he said while addressing a crowd at the commissioning of a secondary school in Omuanwa community, Rivers State in March.
