Obaseki: You Are Toothless Bulldogs That Bark But Can’t Bite, Nyesom Wike Mocks NGF


Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, the Rivers State Governor, has mocked the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) for its inability to march its words with action, calling the body a ‘toothless bulldog’ that can only bark and not bite, consequent to the inability of the body to throw its weight behind an embattled member of the group, Godwin Obaseki, the beleaguered Governor of Edo State.

The maverick governor, who made this disclosure while addressing journalists at Government House, Port Harcourt Monday, carpeted the sudden volte-face of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in disqualifying a seating governor that ran on its ticket in 2016 on the grounds of  certificate forgery.

Describing the Nigerian Governors’ Forum as a comatose body that died when the APC became the ruling party at the centre, Wike accused the forum of always kowtowing to the whims and caprices of some elements in the APC, adding that the group has therefor lost any modicum of respect Nigerians had for it.

Wike also lambasted the Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF) of being unprogressive in its character and mien, labeling them a beggarly herd of weaklings who could not rise in defence of an embattled colleague.
