Obaseki To Wike: We Won't Support Your 2023 Presidential Ambition by kirajustice: 8:10am On Mar 14
POLITICSNIGERIA.COM

The Governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki has reacted to the recent crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

It's no longer news that Wike, last week, launched a scathing attack on the Deputy Governor of Edo state, Philip Shuaibu over an alleged 'threat' he made to the party leadership.

However, in a newspaper advertorial on Monday, Obaseki fired Wike, stating that he won't threaten or cajole Edo state to support his 2023 Presidential Ambition.

The advertorial seen by POLITICS NIGERIA read; "The recent personal attacks by His Excellency, the Governor of Rivers State, Rt. Hon. Nyesom Wike, against my Deputy Governor. Rt. Hon. Comrade Philip Shaibu is, to say the least, most unfortunate and totally uncalled for."

"If Governor Wike was one who is wont to show respect and courtesy to his colleague-governors, he would have ordinarily reached out to me to express his concerns about the views made by my deputy governor, rather than embarking on this unwarranted public onslaught."

"My deputy governor was a former National President of the National Association of Nigerian Student (NANS) and his comment is representative of the essence of the nation’s youth population, who are inclined to openly speak up and question the status quo. If Governor Wike cannot understand and adequately respond to the style and character of the Nigerian youth, how can he aspire to lead them?"

"His Excellency, Governor Wike should have taken a cue from the manner in which the National Chairman of our party, Sen. Dr. lyorchia Ayu, responded to my deputy’s remarks, as a conscientious leader who is able to show empathy and consideration."

"The concerns expressed by my deputy governor bordered on pertinent issues affecting the PDP in Edo State which since the September 19th 2020 elections, has been able to register over 500,000 members; and till date, these new members have not been properly integrated into our party after two years."

"On September 16, 2018, Governor Wike threatened the party that there would be grave consequences if it moved the National Convention from Port Harcourt in the run up to the 2019 presidential election."

"On September 12, 2019, Governor Wike also threatened to cause trouble for the party over the emergence of Hon. Ndudi Elumelu as the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives."

"Undoubtedly, Governor Wike has contributed to the advancement of the party, just like others, since 1999.No one is against his desire to run for president, however, his ambition should not be embarked on in such a way that it would cause disruption at different levels, such as the PDP Governors’ Forum as well as different chapters of the party across the country."

"It clearly amounts to delusion of grandeur, for any one man to nurse the idea that he owns or has more stake in the PDP and everyone should pander to him."

"We are all equal stakeholders in the party and an aggregate of the ideas, opinions and contributions of all leaders and members should form the position of the party and not the view of one individual or a select few."

"While Governor Wike is free to use his resources as he deems fit in pursuit of his ambition, he should not attempt to cow, intimidate, cajole and threaten others into doing his bidding. Edo State cannot and will not be procured for anyone's personal ambition."

"What Nigeria needs now are strong democratic institutions and not strong men; that is why we will join the great leaders of our party across the country to build PDP into a strong, large and indomitable party that will win next year's presidential election."

"Governor Wike and his collaborators headed by Chief Dan Orbih in Edo State will not succeed in destabilizing the PDP in Edo State as they did other states like Cross River just to secure delegates to actualize his alleged personal ambition to run for presidency in 2023. In Edo, we don’t accept political bullies and overlords and historically, we have demonstrated our capacity to unshackle ourselves and dethrone bullies and highhanded leaders."

"| appeal to all well-meaning leaders of our great party to call Governor Wike to order to desist from his current unguarded and disruptive tendencies. From all indications today, PDP is set to take over the leadership of Nigeria provided we can rein in the self interest of a few leaders to put the task of rescuing Nigeria above their personal ambitions."

Could Obaseki be the perfect match for Wike? Well, that's their problem. The burial of PDP is at hand. The crisis between this two is more like the requiem mass.

Look at this empty thing. Why did your deputy not reach out to the party internally to resolve any crisis? Do all political parties globally not have internal systems to dealing with Acrimonies

Empty thing. Leave the party and watch APC tear you to shreds. In fact, APC knowing Woke will withdraw his support will begin to file law suits against him from now. Empty kettle

Very good

Obaseki must teach you fools pepper, starting from the foolish Edo people who voted him, the blockheads in PDP who helped him and Governors who gave him ticket.

Don't demonize Obaseki.
When we warned PDP and Edo people, you ipobs were the ones insulting those better than you.
Now, Edo people are suffering but shame can't allow them talk. PDP Governors are now exchanging insults for the first time.
You ipobs always look for people with the worst possible character and support them.
