Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has labeled Godwin Obaseki, the governor of Edo State, as a politician who is prone to betraying people who aided him achieve his political ambitions.
On Monday, Wike spoke during the inauguration of Community Secondary School, Omuanwa, in the state's Ikwerre Local Government Area.
He claimed he owed apologies to Adams Oshiomhole, the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, for opposing him when he claimed Obaseki was a treacherous and ungrateful man.
This was contained in a press statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri.
Wike said Oshiomhole was right then and has been vindicated given Obaseki’s recent display of ingratitude to the Peoples Democratic Party and to those who helped him to secure his second term.
He said, “If you go and check the DNA of Godwin Obaseki, what you will see in that DNA is serial betrayal and ungratefulness. Let me stand today to apologise to Adams Oshiomhole who has been vindicated by telling us that we will see the true colour, the insincerity and the ungratefulness of Godwin Obaseki.
“So, let me apologise to Adams Oshiomhole and to say you have been vindicated. You were right, we were wrong. I have never seen people who are so ungrateful in life. I have never seen people who can betray everything in life.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
