Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has apologized to Adams Oshiomhole, the former chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for previous comments and attacks on him.
Wike also stated that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the G-5 Governors are only interested in ensuring that the country continues to progress, and that the protesting governors would only be open to reconciliation based on equity, fairness, and justice.
The governor spoke yesterday in Port Harcourt at the inauguration of the Rumuepirikom Flyover, the eighth constructed and completed by his administration, which was performed by former Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole.
Wike took advantage of the commissioning to publicly apologize to Oshiomhole for some political remarks made against him and the governorship candidate he supported in the previous Edo State gubernatorial election.
He said: “You know I came to Edo State to make sure your candidate didn’t win election. I was virtually in charge, everyday coming out on television to take you on, and I said you will not win, and you didn’t win.
“Well, that assignment has been done, we now know who is who. I want to tell my people, I sincerely apologise to you.”
On the lingering crisis in the PDP, Wike stated that prior to the crisis, some members of the party were singing praises of him and the G-5 governors, regretting that the same people have turned around and called them names.
Wike said: “I’m sure, those of them in my party, before, they cannot say anything without mentioning Wike. But now, because I said let the right thing be done, let agreement be agreement and because I have said that, I have now become an enemy. These were people who were praising me morning, night, any day.”
