Edo state governor Godwin Obaseki has led some political leaders from Edo on a thank-you visit to Wike for supporting him and standing by him throughout the election period until the victorious ending that got him re-elected.
Obaseki while expressing deep gratitude to Gov Nyesom Wike Of Rivers State said although victory is of God, he was quoted as saying,
“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.”
In his reaction, Governor Wike praised Obaseki for standing “firm” in the election, saying he could not have supported a “lily-hearted person.”
Wike served as the chairman of the PDP’s campaign on the Edo state governorship election.
