A video has emerged where the former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose predicted that the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki will fight Nyesom Wike.
Fayose in an interview in 2020 noted that Obaseki will fight Wike and some others when he wins re-election with PDP, after he was thrown out of the All Progressives Congress by Adams Oshiomhole.
According to Fayose, he was sure the former APC Chairman, Oshiomole is a bad man but he is afraid Governor Obaseki would betray those who supported him against Oshiomhole.
The PDP chieftain called on Nigerians not to forget that he said these words and they should pray that Obaseki will not allow them to play the trending video.
Fayose had said:
“I won’t be surprised Obaseki will win this election because Oshiomhole is a very bad man, but if he wins this election I won’t be surprised if he turns his back on the likes of my friend Wike and all that.
“They are fighting tooth and nail for him but you should remember that I said it and I pray that Obaseki will not allow us to play this video. Because (for) those in the PDP now, he must keep his agreement with them, he must keep the agreement with them because they kept the party for his coming.”
A rift, however, started last week after Wike condemned the Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu for threatening to leave the PDP.
Shaibu in his statement had claimed that his principal and other APC members who joined PDP were not welcomed in the party.
He further stated that Obaseki and his supporters might dump the ruling party if PDP continues to treat them like pariahs.
Wike in his reaction to the statement of Shaibu said he has no right to threaten PDP because he and his principal begged for a PDP ticket after they were booted out by APC.
The Rivers State Governor said, “And he lost his local government when we were in Edo, he lost. And he would come out on television to threaten the party that there are alternatives, look at the deputy governor, it’s unfortunate.”
“It’s very unfortunate for our party, a deputy governor is wearing khaki, look at it, I’ve never seen a thing like this in my life, who is his father?”
Obaseki in support of his Deputy told Wike that his state is not Rivers, hence Wike should stop parading himself like he owns PDP.
The Rivers State Governor in a quick response described Obaseki as a serial betrayal.
