Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, may have finally made up his mind not to support the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Abubakar Atiku in the 2023 general elections.
This on Thursday declared that Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, has all the ‘characteristics’ to lead Nigeria.
Wike disclosed this at the Nkpolu-Oroworokwo Flyover inauguration in Port Harcourt, the state capital, while pledging to support Obi, the presidential candidate logistically in his presidential bid.
“Each time you want to campaign in the state, let me know. All the logistics support, we will give to you,” Wike told Obi.
“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 for you”, he said.
Wike also chastised Professor Charles Soludo, the current governor of Anambra state for his recent verbal attacks on the Labour Party candidate.
