Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike has mentioned that he didn’t bankroll the reelection of Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State.
Obaseki was re-elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Social gathering (PDP) final Saturday after dumping of the All Progressives Congress, APC, previous to the election.
The Rivers State Governor, who spoke on Channel Tv’s Dawn Each day on Friday, was the chairman of the PDP Marketing campaign Council for the election.
He identified that as a sitting Governor, Obsseki had sufficient funds for his election.
Wike is believed to have supported Obaseki with funds, however he mentioned: “What assets might I’ve deployed?
“He’s a sitting governor. What assets can I give him that he doesn’t have?”
