Nyesom Wike Express Reget

The governor made the apology during the commissioning of Rumuepirikom Flyover in the Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers by Oshiomhole on Wednesday.

Wike said he would not have worked for Obaseki’s re-election in 2020, stressing that he has learnt his lesson and the past should remain in the past.

He said, “I use this opportunity to apologise to you. I came to Edo State to make sure your candidate didn’t win election. I said you won’t win and you didn’t win. That assignment has been done and we now know who is who. We are now friends, let bygones be bygones.

“I want to sincerely apologise to you. Each time you learn. People will praise you when you do for them. When you say, they are wrong, they begin to say all sorts of things.

“I’m sure those of them in my party before cannot do anything without Wike but because I said let the right thing be done, let agreement be agreement, I have now become an enemy. These are people who were praising me morning and night.”

Oshiomhole Lauds Wike

In his speech, Oshiomhole lauded Wike for the many “beautiful projects” in Rivers, adding that executive exchanges have a way of communicating to the people that political divide is not war.

He said, “I listened to you (Wike) attentively and you said Peter Obi is coming tomorrow. I want to congratulate you for that because I also invited Peter Obi when I was governor and those executive exchanges have a way of communicating to our people that political divide is not war.

“I also invited governors from other states to Edo the last one week before my tenure as you said, for them to see what I was able to do.

“I promise that when I get back to Abuja, I will use my mouth to talk what my mouth saw. The flyover I saw is not a culvert. There are people who commissioned culverts and said they were flyovers but what I am seeing here is a beautiful flyover which you will see anywhere in the world,” he added.

KanyiDaily recalls that before the Edo governorship election in 2020, Wike said that Edo people are better with Obaseki than Oshiomhole whom he said was a cultist and fake pastor who destroyed the manhood of his fellow man.
