Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki, has thanked River state gov. Nyesom Wike, for playing the “key” roles he played in his reelection.
The governor made this known while addressing newsmen after a meeting he had with Wike yesterday.
He said Wike clothed and fed him after he was “pushed out” of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Wike was among the first people that met with Obaseki shortly after the APC screening committee disqualified him from the Edo governorship poll.
Also it is believed that he played a very strong role in the victory by the PDP in the election which held last Saturday .
In a statement, Paulinus Nsirim, Rivers commissioner of information, said Obaseki led some political leaders from Edo on a thank-you visit to Wike for supporting his reelection.
According to the statement the victory PDP achieved were throuhht the strategies brought about the Rivers government house.
“After I was pushed out of my former party, this house was the first place I sought solace. You took me in as a brother, out of the storm, changed my clothes and gave me food to eat,” he said.
“It was in this house, the campaign council met to work out the key strategies that led us to victory. You mobilised people across the country. You moved to Benin, went through the humiliation and attacks. You supported us and we won.
“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.”
