Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has denied accusations that he worked against Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, in the February 25 election.
Peter Obi: Wike speaks on working against Labour Party
APC...said Wike was instrumental to the victory of its candidate...
Governor Wike explained this as he hosted the National Executive Committee of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide at the Government House in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, on Thursday, March 09, 2023.
What Wike said: “I supported that power must come to the south. When Obi came here, I gave him all the logistics; vehicles, other supports and paid for the stadium, but some other persons applied and I refused. You should know me too well by now,” Wike said.
What is going on: Rivers, a South-South state, was projected by some political analysts to be won by Obi, under a free, fair and credible circumstance. But there were allegations of voters’ suppression, especially from the camp of the Labour Party and Wike’s party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
What you should know: The Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had last week said Wike was instrumental to the victory of its candidate, Bola Tinubu in Rivers State.
