Governor Nyesom Wike has replied an advertorial by Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki where he accused the Rivers strong man of harbouring a presidential ambition in 2023.
Obaseki described wike as a ‘bully’ and one who is ‘delusional’ about becoming President.
In a swift response on Monday afternoon while addressing a crowd at an event in Rivers, Wike described obaseki as a ‘betrayer’ and an ‘ingrate’.
“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.”
Wike doubled down on his attacks saying that he was not on the same level as Obaseki and that he has not contributed anything to the PDP.
“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.”
