Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, had said Obaseki is free to return to the All Progressives Congress if he feels the PDP is not a party where he can actualize his vision.
Wike stated this in an interview with Channels TV on Friday, September 25.
Recall that the Edo State governor dumped APC for PDP in June 2020 after a long disagreement with past National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole.
Nyesom Wike who was the chairman of the PDP campaign council for the just concluded Edo State governorship election was asked what he would do if Obaseki goes back to APC.
In response, Wike said
“I don’t want to discuss something that is not going to be possible. However, assuming it happens, so what? That is politics.
“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.”
