Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said that Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, is free to return to the All Progressives Congress if he feels the PDP is not working for him, adding that Obaseki must never forget that he was given an umbrella when he was left in the rain.
The Rivers State governor said this on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Friday.
When asked what he would do if Obaseki left the PDP, Wike said, “I don’t want to discuss something that is not going to be possible. However, assuming it happens, so what? That is politics.
“If the governor believes that the PDP is no longer a party for him to actualise his vision and his mission, there is nothing wrong but I don’t believe that it is going to happen because the governor has consistently told us that there is no way he will leave the PDP. If he leaves the PDP, people in Edo State will not be happy.
“And he is somebody I have that trust in that he will not leave the party. This is a party that clothed him. This is a party that when it was raining, gave him an umbrella.”
Wike said he did not play such a big role in Obaseki’s re-election but only acted as the chairman of the campaign council.
According to him, he merely supervised the campaign, presented strategies and gave guidance.
Speaking further, he said it would be wrong for anyone to give him the glory when others like Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State and Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, played their roles.
Wike stated that he did not fund Obaseki’s campaign because the governor already had enough money to execute his campaign.
“What resources could I have deployed? He is a sitting governor. What resources can I give him that he does not have?” he asked.
