Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday pledged to provide logistics support for the campaigns of Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi within the state.
Wike also said Obi, a former Anambra State governor, has all the characteristic to lead Nigeria.
The Rivers governor made this known to the LP presidential candidate in Port Harcourt, the state capital, at the venue of the Nkpolu-Oroworokwo Flyover inauguration.
For months, Wike and four other governors in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have demanded the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu as PDP national chairman as a precondition to support the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
While Wike and his allies have not been seen to campaign for Atiku, it is not clear whether they will support Obi, or Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the contest for Aso Rock’s top job which has been described by analysts and keen observers as a three-horse race.
