PDP is not campaigning for Me-Obaseki Flares up as he makes fresh 1.92 Billion available for ward chairmen.

Obaseki is currently livid with anger towards members of the PDP over their nonchalant attitude towards his Governorship reelection bid.

Obaseki has called the leadership of PDP to order. Our source who pleaded anonymity said the situation is currently knotty as major PDP stakeholders have refused to campaign for Obaseki openly despite the huge amount expended on the party.

The source further said Nyesom Wike is already having cold feet and has refused to pick up Obaseki’s call in the last few days.

The source claims the funds expected from the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike towards Obaseki’s reelection bid is not forthcoming. Wike allegedly made a pledge of 1 Billion Naira towards the campaign organization but he is yet to remit a kobo.

Also, Okowa’s alleged pledge of 1.2 Billion Naira is still hanging in the balance with little or no hope if the funds would be remitted to the campaign council.

Facing mass resignation from his political appointees and the threat of the PDP 192 ward chairmen to decamp to the opposition APC Obaseki is alleged to have released a fresh 1.92 Billion naira to the ward chairmen for mobilization.

Recall three days ago the 192 PDP ward chairmen met and gave Obaseki a 48 hrs ultimatum to disburse 10 million each to all the wards for immediate mobilization or else face mass decampment.

Our source at Government house claims Obaseki settled the issue of the 10 million each for the ward chairmen and it was among the over 20 Billion PDP crossover deal.

He said the Governor was shocked when security reports reached him that the 192 ward chairmen were yet to receive a penny from the PDP.

The Governor who was madly angered said no single PDP member was campaigning for him as all his canvassers are still the same people he had with him while in APC.

Obaseki vowed to pay them back in their own coins peradventure he returns as the Executive Governor of the State.

“You know wetin dey pain Obaseki na say after the heavy billions wey we give PDP to even settle all the 192 ward chairmen one kobo PDP no share give them, wetin dey vex Governor na b say Wike is not even picking his calls in the last two days?

Okowa claims he has some personal issues to handle and has been incommunicado in the last 48 hrs. So you do not expect Obaseki to be happy, these ward chairmen were meant to be settled from the money dropped at the top only for us to be hearing that it has entered voice mail.

Let me ask you if PDP ward chairmen desert us where do you expect us to run to? that was why the Governor was forced to release the 1.92 Billion to all the 192 ward chairmen. The modalities of disbursement would be disseminated to the concerned parties.”

Those were the exact words of our source.

The problem we gathered from our investigations is that Obaseki is currently facing a major problem which is the issue of trust, Obaseki has no single structure in the PDP, and trust nobody with funds.

It was alleged Atiku doled out 100 Million Naira to the social media team of Obaseki, sources say the money was for only a week as no single online media campaign has taken place since after the first week the money was disbursed.

According to the PDP source that one na just testing the mic …make dem bring money come if dem wan see WORK.
