Igbo politicians criticising Peter Obi out of jealousy – Wike
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has identified jealousy as the reason for the constant criticisms of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, by his Igbo kinsmen.
Wike who spoke on Thursday during Obi and his running mate, Yusuf Baba-Ahmed’s visit to Port Harcourt to commission the Ikoku flyover, said the LP flagbearer performed well while serving as governor of Anambra State.
He slammed the incumbent governor of Anambra State, Professor Charles Soludo over his recent verbal attacks on Obi.
Wike 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”.
