Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has apologised to former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, saying he regrets working for the re-election of Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State.
Wike tendered the apology to Oshiomhole on Wednesday at the inauguration of the Rumuepirikom Flyover in the Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of the state which the ex-APC chairman commissioned.
According to Wike, he has learnt his lessons and the past should remain in the past.
“I use this opportunity to apologise to you. I came to Edo State to make sure your candidate didn’t win election. I said you won’t win and you didn’t win. That assignment has been done and we now know who is who,” Wike told a smiling Oshiomhole.
“We are now friends, let bygones be bygones,” Wike said.
“I want to sincerely apologise to you. Each time you learn. People will praise you when you do for them. When you say, they are wrong, they begin to say all sorts of things.
“I’m sure those of them in my party before cannot do anything without Wike but because I said let the right thing be done, let agreement be agreement, I have now become an enemy. These are people who are praising me morning and night,” he added.
