OBASEKI RUNS TO WIKE FOR SUCCOUR AS APC FRUSTRATES HIM
The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike on Sunday played host to his embattled Edo counterpart Godwin Obaseki at the Government House, Port Harcourt.
Sources told Brave Views that Obaseki ran to Governor Wike, in furtherance of his consultations with key players of the PDP, in a bid join and secure the party’s ticket, ahead of the governorship election of Edo State in September.
The development comes days after the governor’s chances of being reelected was frustrated by his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), following his disqualification on Friday.
Obaseki had earlier affirmed that he would never leave the APC, despite efforts to frustrate him.
He had also boasted that nobody could stop him from contesting and winning the Edo governorship position for a second time.
However, speculations were ripe that the embattled governor was planning to dump the All Progressive Congress (APC) and join another.
Some pundits told Brave Views that the visit of Governor Obaseki to his Rivers counterpart has given credence to speculations that he is on his way to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Although, details of the meeting was sketchy, unauthorized sources told our correspondent that issues bordering on his sail to PDP was extensively discussed.
Our sources said Obaseki pleaded with Wike to help him prevail on the leadership of PD to secure the ticket, being an influential leader of the party.
