Again, Gov. Wike Vows ‘Logistic Support’ For Kwankwaso’s Presidential Campaign

By Damilare Adeleye

The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has pledged to support the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso, with logistics for his campaign when it is time for him to hold rally in Rivers State.

Wike made this disclosure during the inauguration of Mgbutanwo Internal Roads in Emohua Local Government Area of the state,

The governor described NNPP presidential candidate as a friend and a man of integrity.

It would be recalled that Wike, on last Thursday, also pledged to support the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, with logistics for his campaign in the state, after describing Obi as a man that had all the characteristics to lead Nigeria.

Wike further stated that he was one of the few people that met Kwankwaso, who was a former PDP member, not to leave the party because he knew he was an asset to the PDP, especially in Kano State.

He said, “I remember when I went to meet you in your house in Abuja to plead with you not to leave the party (PDP) because I knew you were an asset to the party. Even when they told me to leave you alone, I refused.

“I have known you and I know you are a man of integrity so I want to say that whenever you want to campaign in Rivers State, I will provide you with all your logistics, just let me know when you want to come.”

On the project, Wike boasted that the road construction was flagged off in June 2021 and that it was completed four months ago, adding that he had more projects to be commissioned soon.

“We just commissioned the ninth flyover last week and we will commission the 10th before the end of the year. We will also commission the 11th and 12th flyover next year.

“I said I will turn turn Emuoha around, have I not done it? I brought the best construction company in Nigeria to construct this road.”
