2023 Election: Wike Declares Support For Peter Obi’s Campaign
2023 Presidency: Wike Declares Support For Peter Obi’s Campaign.
The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has promised to provide logistics support for the campaign of the presidential candidate of the Labor Party (LP), Peter Obi.
Speaking on Thursday during the commissioning of the Ikoku flyover by the former Governor of Anambra State in Port Harcourt, Wike said Obi has shown that he is a trustworthy politician.
The Rivers governor opined that the LP presidential candidate has all the attributes of being the next President of Nigeria in 2023.
“Each time you want to campaign in the state, let me know, all the logistics support, we will give to you.
“I know you as a person, you have all the criteria, you have all the characteristics to lead this country, you have it. Nobody can deny that,” Wike told Obi.
Speaking further, Wike appreciated Obi for his performance during his tenure as the Anambra governor.
He slammed the incumbent governor of Anambra State, Professor Charles Soludo, over his recent verbal attacks on the LP candidate.
Wike, however, advised Obi to ignore such attacks, stressing that Nigerians don’t like leaders who are upright.
The governor who believed that some of the attacks on Obi were due to envy, asked Soludo and those attacking the LP presidential candidate to face governance.
