‘PDP not your personal property’: Obaseki slams Wike, defends deputy

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has defended his deputy, Phili Shaibu, following an outburst on him by the governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike.

Obaseki in a statement titled, ‘Obaseki to Wike: PDP is not your personal property, Edo cannot be procured’, warned the Rivers governor not to cause disruption in PDP.

The statement reads in part; “No one is against his desire to run for president, however, his ambition should not be embarked on in such a way that it would cause disruption at different levels, such as the PDP Governors’ Forum as well as different chapters of the party across the country.

“It clearly amounts to delusion of grandeur, for any one man to nurse the idea that he owns or has more stake in the PDP and everyone should pander to him.

“We are all equal stakeholders in the party and an aggregate of the ideas, opinions, and contributions of all leaders and members should form the position of the party and not the view of one individual or a select few.

“While Governor Wike is free to use his resources as he deems fit in pursuit of his ambition, he should not attempt to cow, intimidate, cajole and threaten others into doing his bidding. Edo State cannot and will not be procured for anyone’s personal ambition”.
