Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike has revealed that there is nothing wrong if Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki leaves the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), for the All Progressive Congress (APC).
Governor Wike, who was Chairman of the party’s campaign council for the Edo election, spoke in a Channels TV’s Friday morning live interview.
Where he stated that he did nothing special in Obaseki’s 2nd term re-election success and that the victory was a collective effort of every member of the Peoples’s Democratic Party (PDP).
“It is impossible,” but that “assuming it happens, so what? That is politics. There is nothing wrong if the governor (Obaseki) believes that PDP is no longer the party for him to actualise his vision and mission.
“But he (Obaseki) has consistently told us that there’s no way he will leave PDP. If he does, for example, the people of Edo State will not be happy and he is somebody I have that trust in.
“The party clothed him and when it was raining gave him the umbrella.”
“APC is not a political party. It’s people who came together to take power from PDP. That is the crisis they are having together.
“It’s a party of strange bedfellow that came together to conspire against the former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan.” Governor Wike concluded.
