Gov. Wike Apologises To Oshiomhole For Supporting Obaseki’s Re-Election

Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, has pleaded with former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, to forgive his actions during the re-election of Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State in September 2020.

Wike spoke on Wednesday, at the inauguration of the Rumuepirikom Flyover in the Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of the state, which the ex-APC chairman commissioned.

Recall that Obaseki, in 2020, fell out with Oshiomhole, after the then-former APC National Chairman, denied him the party’s gubernatorial ticket for his re-election.

The governor defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), where he contested against Ize Iyamu, Oshiomhole’s anointed candidate.

Wike had played an active role in securing the PDP’s ticket and mobilising support for Obaseki during the electioneering process.
