The former two-term governor of Edo state commended Wike for insisting on an agreement (Asaba Declaration), which he (Wike) laid claims to.

He said, “Two weeks ago, I had an interview and somebody asked me what are my views with particular reference to the issues in PDP as it relate to Your Excellency (Wike),” Oshiomhole told the Rivers governor.

“I said Wike is my man of the year because he is insisting that politics is not about making agreements that we do not intend to deliver on. Leadership is about character,” he added.

Oshiomhole also recalled that the 17 Southern governors in Nigeria met on May 11, 2021, in Asaba, Delta State, and resolved that the next president of Nigeria should emerge from the Southern region.

According to him, the Asaba Declaration by governors across party divides was on their own free will and they united on where the next President should come from.

“So, if you voluntarily reach an agreement, you are expected to obey your agreement. Now, if you disobey the agreement and said, ‘No, I will stand with the agreement’, what is wrong with that?” Oshiomhole queried.

Oshiomhole also commended Wike for the projects he executed in Rivers.

Recall that Wike had invited members of opposition political parties to inaugurate projects in the state.
