I'll stand beside you. Governor Wike to Peter Obi
On Thursday, Peter Obi, the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, received a "logistics assistance"commitment from Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike.
Wike promised to support Obi's campaign in Rivers State logistically.
At the opening of the Nkpolu-Oroworokwo Flyover in Port Harcourt, he vowed to back Obi.
Obi has all it takes to become Nigeria's president, according to the governor.
Every time you want to run for office in the state, just let me know, and we'll help you out with the practicalities, according to Wike.
Obi, Datti Baba-Ahmed, and a few other members of the LP presidential campaign team were in Rivers for Wike's administration to commission the 9th flyover.
Wike has been talking with leaders of various political groups over the last few months.
Following his defeat in the PDP's presidential primary elections, Wike's move can be linked to his anger with the party's leadership.
