Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said that the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi has all the characteristic to be the president of Nigeria.
Wike said this on Thursday in Port Harcourt at the venue of the Nkpolu-Oroworokwo Flyover inauguration, pledging to provide “logistics support” for his presidential campaigns.
“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 described Obi as a humble man with integrity.
Wike said though he knew the humiliation Obi suffered before he left the PDP for the Labour Party, he won’t leave the party but chase out the “armed robbers”.
“I know the humiliation you suffered. Nobody will hear what you pass through and stay in the party but I will not leave. I will stay and fight.
“I won’t leave this house. I will never allow armed robbers to take over this house. I will stay and chase away armed robbers.
“So, thank God because if you have not left, you would not have realised your ambition to be able to save Nigeria,” he said.
Obi and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed were in the state capital to commission the 9th flyover by the present administration. They were excitedly received by a large crowd of their supporters known as ‘Obidients’.
