Amidst rising speculations that Edo Governor Godwin Obaseki may be defecting again to the APC, his biggest supporter and Rivers  Governor Nyesom Wike has stated the PDP position.

Wike was on Channels TV Friday when he was asked what his reaction would be if the man he helped to win a re-election ditch the PDP for his former party calling him to return to the party.

According to Wike, it’s all 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, he said, after dismissing the question, adding, “assuming it happens, so what? That is politics.

Wike, however, hid his aversion to such kind of politics by transferring to the Edo voters  the responsibility to deal with a betrayer.

“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.”

The loudest PDP governor in the south-south equally stated he trusts Obaseki will be a man of his ord.

“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.”

Obasekis victory in the September 22 election has been chalked up as a victory over godfatherism, considering the war between him and his predecessor Adams Oshiomhole who fielded a PDP drop-in Osagie Ize Iyamu for the APC.
