Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on Wednesday visited his Rivers State counterpart, Barr. Nyesom Wike, at the Rivers Government House, in Port Harcourt.
The visit is coming three days after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Obaseki as the winner of the Sept. 19 Edo Governorship election.
What about Obaseki told Wike
Obaseki said; “After I was pushed out of my former Party, this house was the first place I sought solace. You took me in as a brother, out of the storm, changed my clothes and gave me food to eat.
“It was in this house, the Campaign Council met to work out the key strategies that led us to victory.
“You mobilised people across the country. You moved to Benin, went through the humiliation and attacks. You supported us and we won.
“It will be a sin against God if we do not come to say thank you. Even if the victory we are celebrating is from God. He has used people like you to make it happen.”
What Wike told Obaseki
Wike said; “Our work would have been difficult if he did not make himself available. I cannot support a lily hearted person. Governor Obaseki was firm.
“It is not easy to fight godfatherism. But he has the interest of Edo people at heart. Together, we have conquered it.”
