Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike pledged on Thursday to provide logistical support for Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi’s campaign.
Wike, who described Obi, as “a very humble man” said he has the qualities to govern Nigeria.
The Rivers governor informed the former Anambra state governor of this in Port Harcourt, the state capital, at the inauguration of the Nkpolu-Oroworokwo Flyover.
Describing Obi, the governor said, “He’s a former governor and presidential candidate, and a very humble man. As a state government, we will also give him logistics support for his 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.
Obi and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed, were in Port Harcourt to dedicate the current administration’s ninth flyover.
And they were greeted warmly by a large crowd of ‘Obidients,’ their supporters.
Wike, along with four other disgruntled governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have been calling for the resignation of their national chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu.
As a result, they are at odds with the PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
