Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has described the consolation he got from the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike as the second pivot for his electoral victory.
The first pillar, he said, is God who crowned the efforts of all his supporters.
Governor Obaseki was speaking when he led some political leaders of Edo State on a thank you visit to Governor Wike at the Rivers State Government House, Port Harcourt.
He noted the commitment of Governor Wike in ensuring electoral victory for him by relocating to Edo State despite the needless attacks from the opposition.
“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 cloths and gave me food to eat. It was in this house, the Campaign Council met to work out the key strategies that led us to victory,” he said.
“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.”
