Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has reiterated his resolve to support the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate Peter Obi, with logistics support.
Wike explained that Obi was a former governor, hence the need to support him with logistics during his presidential campaign in Rivers.
On Friday, Wike pledged to support Obi’s presidential campaign with logistics.
The governor disclosed this while Obi was commissioning a flyover in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
However, Wike warned Obi that Labour Party would not win any political position in the state.
Speaking yesterday in Port Harcourt, Wike said PDP is the only party existing in Rivers State.
He said: “I have no regret in saying I will support Obi with logistics. He is a former governor, and if he is coming to campaign here, I will give him logistics support.
“I will give him vehicles, and security; I must give him logistics support. And I told him yesterday that his party will not get even one position in Rivers, not House of Assembly; there is no other party in Rivers. The only party we have here is PDP, Rivers State chapter.”
While in return Peter Obi makes promises to Governor Wike
Peter Obi, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has promised Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike that he would continue to work with him.
Obi stated this during the commissioning of Nkpolu Oroworukwo flyover on Thursday in Port Harcourt.
He assured Wike of his commitment, adding that it is not easy when you seek agreement and have all those who believe in lies as your enemy.
Obi said: “If I had the opportunity of serving this country, the people of Rivers State, the people of Niger Delta would remain grateful to me because I would change the Niger Delta.
These oils we get from Niger Delta, people will see. What you are doing in Port Harcourt is to bring back the state from what it used to be.”
Obi added: “We assure Governor Wike that we will continue to work with him, continue the path you are treading and remain consistent. It is not easy when you are saying the truth.
It is not easy when you seek agreement, you have all those who live up to confusion as your enemy. You have all those who believe in lies as your enemy. You have all those who believe in not keeping promises as your enemy. So I assure you of my commitment.”
