.You Are A Serial Betrayer, Wike Blasts Obaseki As War Of Words Intensifies ~ The Scoper Media

   Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has labeled his Edo State counterpart, Godwin Obaseki, as a politician who has a history of betraying people who have helped him rise in politics.

  On Monday, Wike spoke during the opening of the Community Secondary School, Omuanwa, in the state’s Ikwerre Local Government Area.

   He said he owed an apology to Adams Oshiomhole, the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, for opposing him when he believed Obaseki was a deceitful and ungrateful guy.

  His Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri, released a press statement to that effect.

  Wike stated that Oshiomhole was correct at the time and that he has been vindicated by Obaseki’s recent display of ingratitude to the Peoples Democratic Party and those who assisted him in securing his second term.

  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.”

   Wike argued that when it comes to character, Obaseki was never his match because he is a consistent, true, and frank team player who has never misled anybody who has assisted him politically.

   He added that the difficulty in Edo State arose from Obaseki’s request to the PDP’s national leadership to dissolve the Edo PDP executive, despite the fact that the leaders were elected before he joined the party and created a formidable framework for him to win the election.

   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.”

   He said it was unfortunate that Obaseki could describe him as a bully now that he is being called to order.

  “You came to beg a bully for you to have a ticket. A bully was your DG campaign and a bully bullied you into Government House. What a shame. It did not only end there.

   “You came with your wife to thank the bully that after God, the bully made it possible for you to be there,” Wike added.

  Obaseki had described the personal attacks by Wike against his Deputy, Philip Shaibu, as “most unfortunate and totally uncalled for.”

   In a statement, the governor called on the leaders of the PDP to call Wike to order, noting that the issues raised by his deputy were germane and needed to be resolved in the interest of the party.

   He said, “The recent personal attacks by the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, against my Deputy Governor, Rt Philip Shaibu is, to say the least, most unfortunate and totally uncalled for.

   “If Governor Wike was one who is wont to show respect and courtesy to his colleague-governors, he would have ordinarily reached out to me to express his concerns about the views made by my deputy governor, rather than embarking on this unwarranted public onslaught.

   “My deputy governor was a former National President of the National Association of Nigerian Students and his comment is representative of the essence of the nation’s youth population, who are inclined to openly speak up and question the status quo.”

  “If Governor Wike cannot understand and adequately respond to the style and character of the Nigerian youth, how can he aspire to lead them?”
