Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state has said that he is open to a harmonious resolution with Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state following their recent verbal war.
In a statement released on Thursday March 17 by his media aide Crusoe Osagie, Obaseki accused those he described as mischief-makers of trying to disrupt the ongoing peace process initiated by the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party.
The Edo state Governor also claimed that people are trying to exploit the “ongoing conversation between PDP leaders” to “stir crisis and cause disaffection.”
The statement read;
“There has been a flurry of statements and comments on social media by mischief makers who are hiding under the pretext of the ongoing conversation between leaders within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stir crisis and cause disaffection.
“These statements and irresponsible behaviour are outrightly condemned. We hereby distance ourselves from the actions of these detractors.
“The National leadership of the party is already dealing with the issues and we are open to the harmonious resolution of whatever concerns that may arise.”
