Edo Poll: I Did Not Finance Obaseki’s Reelection – Gov Wike


By Lillian Ogbonna (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike has denied trending suggestions in some quarters that he single handedly financed the reelection of Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State.

Wike, who was the Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP), made this refutation on Channel Television’s Sunrise Daily.

According to the Rivers State Governor, Governor Obsseki, as a sitting chief executive officer of a state, funded his election, without external inputs.

Wike is widely believed to have supported Obaseki, who won a second term on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) last Saturday, following his defection from the All Progressives Congress, APC, prior to the poll.
