The Rivers State Governor, Nyason Wike has said that he is not too comfortable with the Presidential candidate of his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), after his former boss, ex President Olusegun Obasanjo bypassed him and endorsed the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) for this year’s election.
Reacting to the endorsement of Peter Obi by Obasanjo, governor Wike said: “there is something fundamentally wrong.
“I was praying that Obasanjo should not say anything. When I saw the letter last night, I was touched. If your principal cannot recommend you, then there is something fundamentally wrong,”
Wike, who spoke today, January 2 at the flag-off of the construction of Akpabu-Odido Road in Emohua and Ahoada West local government areas of Rivers State, said: “after all, you people went to see your principal to lobby him to recommend you. It took your principal a long time before he now wrote a letter to all Nigerians.
“Look, I am not too comfortable with Atiku. I am not bothered about other people but this one (Obasanjo) worked with you and he knows you: why he took that decision.”
Atiku was Vice President during the Obasanjo administration between 1999-2007.
