Reelected Governor Godwin Obaseki has been enjoined to remain in the party that gave him his mandate as second-term governor, adding that if he leaves the PDP for APC, Edo people will not be happy with him.
Wike stated this on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Friday.
He said “If the governor believes that the PDP is no longer a party for him to actualise his vision and his mission, there is nothing wrong but I don’t believe that it is going to happen.
”Because the governor has consistently told us that there is no way he will leave the PDP. If he leaves the PDP, people in Edo State will not be happy.
“And he is somebody I have that trust in that he will not leave the party. This is a party that clothed him. This is a party that when it was raining, gave him an umbrella.”
Wike, however, said the Edo State governor must never forget that he was given an umbrella when he was left in the rain.
Wike explained that he did not play such a big role in Obaseki’s re-election but only acted as the chairman of the campaign council.
He said he merely supervised the campaign, presented strategies and gave guidance.
The governor said it would be wrong of anyone to give him the glory when others like Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State and Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, played their roles.
