Written by on March 16, 2022
Following the recent diatribe between the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike and his Edo State counterpart, Governor Godwin Obaseki over the crises in the Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, a group, under the auspices of Wike Ambassadors Network, WAN, has called for calm and urged Governor Obaseki to tender an unreserved apology to his colleague and ersthwhile political benefactor.
Addressing journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, National Coordinator of WAN, Comrade Adams Abonu described the acrimony between the two PDP governors as ‘’ill-timed’’ and capable of breeding bad blood within the ranks of PDP.
His words, ‘’It is rather unfortunate to observe how decorum and common sense was thrown into the wind by Governor Godwin Obaseki while trying to respond to the issues raised by his counterpart Governor Wike bothering on insurbordination to the party by the deputy governor of Edo State.
He added that the group would take it upon themselves to mediate between the two sides to engender harmony within the party while also
calling on the leadership of PDP under Senator Iyorchia Ayu, National Chairman of PDP, to intervene in the interest of the party and supporters.
Continuing, Comrade Abonu reiterated the need to instill discipline within the party inorder to forestall insurbordination and ensure the supremacy of the party at all levels.
“The party is bigger than the ambition of any governor who is not able to carry every member along,’’ Abonu emphasised.
