Governor Wike Declares Support For Peter Obi’s Campaign

By Damilare Adeleye

Governor Nyesom Wike has pledged to provide logistics support for the campaign of the presidential candidate of the Labor Party (LP), Peter Obi.

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.

Governor Wike said 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,” Wike told Obi.

The Rivers State governor also appreciated Obi for his performance during his tenure as the Anambra governor.

He chided the incumbent governor of Anambra State, Professor Charles Soludo, over his recent verbal attacks on the LP candidate.

However, Wike 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.

He said: “You have worked very well in Anambra. But some people because of the level you are now, they are envying you, they can come out and say all manner of rubbish, don’t worry, that is how it is.

“It is your own people that will kill you first, so don’t bother about those things. I have told people, stop criticizing people who have already left. If you are a professor, professor well, if you are a doctor, doctor well”.

Peter Obi and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed, had arrived in Port Harcourt on Thursday morning to commission the 9th flyover by the present administration.

They were excitedly received by a large crowd of their supporters known as ‘Obidients’ at the Port Harcourt International Airport
