While pledging to support Obi logistically in his presidential bid, Wike said: “each time you want to campaign in the state, let me know. All the logistics support, we will give to you.

“I know you as a person. You have all the criteria, you have all the characteristics to lead this country, you have it. Nobody can deny that for you.”

Wike expressed surprise at the recent verbal attack on Peter Obi by the governor of Anambra State, Professor Charles Soludo, comforting Obi with: “it’s on record you performed exceptionally well in your state. But some people, because of the level you are in now in Nigeria, they’re envying you in your state. They can come and say all sorts of rubbish. but don’t worry, that’s how it is.
