After helping him secure his second term bid, Governor Godwin Obaseki has expressed gratitude to his counterpart in Rivers state, Nyesom Wike.
The Edo state governor who was re-elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said Governor Wike clothed and fed him after he was “pushed out” of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Cable reported that Obaseki made this known on Wednesday, September 23, when he visited the Rivers state governor.
Wike served as the chairman of the PDP's campaign on the Edo state governorship election.
Legit.ng gathers that a statement by the Edo state government said Obaseki led some political leaders from Edo on a thank-you visit to Wike for supporting his re-election.
The statement quoted the Edo governor as saying it was at the Rivers government house that the strategies that led to his victory were formulated.
Governor Obaseki said:
“It will be a sin against God if we do not come to say thank you. Even if the victory we are celebrating is from God. He has used people like you to make it happen.”
Meanwhile, after his defeat in the September 19 governorship election in Edo state, the APC's candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has made a first public appearance.
Ize-Iyamu had a closed-door meeting with the chairman of the APC caretaker committee and governor of Yobe state, Mai Mala Buni, on Wednesday, September 23, in Abuja.
In another report, the former APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, has finally broken his silence.
The former Edo state governor said he was moved to tears during the election when he saw elderly women who were determined to cast their ballot despite some hitches in the process.
He said rather than get frustrated over how malfunctioning card readers slowed down the process, the people waited patiently.
