Wike to Oshiomhole: I apologize for running you down during Obaseki’s reelection campaign.

GOVERNOR Nyesom Wike has apologized to former All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole for running him over in support of Governor Godwin Obaseki during the last Edo state governorship election.

Wike apologized on Wednesday, when Oshiomhole, as his guest of honor, inaugurated the Rumuepirikom Flyover, Obio-Akpor Local Government Area, the eighth of such projects delivered in Port Harcourt metropolis by Rivers State Government under Wike’s administration’s urban renewal drive.

Wike told his visitor, “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 and you know, each time you (we) learn.”

Wike maintained that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) G-5 governors will only seek reconciliation based on equity, fairness, and justice regarding the agitation to have party national chairman, Sen Iyorcha Ayu, step down, pitting him (Wike) and allies against PDP residential candidate Atiku Abunakar.

While unveiling the flyover, former Edo state governor Oshiomhole told his chief host, “I think Rivers people should be proud because our people often say prophets are not appreciated at home.” This city has been completely transformed by Governor Wike.

Sir, truth is I have not heard anyone who is able to say with some measure of confidence that Governor Wike, his own na just talk. You talk, you walk the talk.

“In politics, I can’t come to this place when we want the votes and begin to celebrate you. If I celebrate you like our President Buhari has celebrated you now, and you’re using the certificate to make the most potent campaign against my own party what can we say?

“Facts are very stubborn. So, I agree that even your worse critics will admit that governor Wike has made a difference. You made a difference not only in projects but even your statement this afternoon. I join you in saying, because I had course to say that in Benin when I was governor of Edo that how can a country be governed by people who cannot be trusted.

“When politicians make statements, make promises or even make agreements or even enact laws and the laws are not to be obeyed by themselves but to be obeyed by others and when they default in their promise or standing, they say that is politics for you.”
