Obi has all the characteristics to lead Nigeria -Wike
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has revealed that the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has all the “characteristics” to lead Nigeria.
Wike made this known in Port Harcourt, at the inauguration of the Nkpolu-Oroworokwo Flyover inauguration, while also pledging to provide logistics support for the presidential campaigns the former Governor of Anambra State.
Wike stated “Each time you want to campaign in the state, let me know, all the logistics support will be given to you”.
“I know you as a person. You have all the criteria, all the characteristics to lead this country. Nobody can deny that for you.”
Obi and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed, who arrived in Port-Harcourt earlier on Thursday to commission the 9th flyover by the Wike-led administration, were excitedly received by a large crowd of their supporters known as ‘Obidients’.
For several months, Wike and four other governors in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have demanded the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu as the party’s national chairman as a precondition to support the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
While Wike and his allies have not been campaigning for Atiku, it is, however, not certain if they will support Obi, or Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the forthcoming 2023 presidential election which has been described by analysts and keen observers as “a three-horse race”.
