Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki has expressed gratitude to the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike for his supposed role in the just concluded Edo State election which saw Obaseki emerge victorious.

Speaking when he visited Wike on Wednesday, the governor said Wike clothed and fed him after he was “pushed out” of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Wike was among the first people that met with Obaseki shortly after the APC screening committee disqualified him from the Edo governorship poll.

In a statement, Paulinus Nsirim, Rivers commissioner of information, said Obaseki led some political leaders from Edo on a thank-you visit to Wike for supporting his reelection.

The statement quoted the Edo governor as saying it was at the Rivers government house that the strategies that led to his victory were formulated.

“After I was pushed out of my former party, this house was the first place I sought solace. You took me in as a brother, out of the storm, changed my clothes and gave me food to eat,” he said.

“It was in this house, the campaign council met to work out the key strategies that led us to victory. You mobilised people across the country. You moved to Benin, went through the humiliation and attacks. You supported us and we won.

“It will be a sin against God if we do not come to say thank you. Even if the victory we are celebrating is from God. He has used people like you to make it happen.” he said
