Inviting the LP candidate to open the Nkpolu-Oroworokwo Flyover in Port-Harcourt, Wike also said that Obi possessed all the qualities necessary to lead Nigeria.

When you want to run a campaign in the state again, let me know, and we’ll help you with the practicalities, Wike added.

“I know you as a person; you meet all the requirements and possess all the qualities necessary to govern our nation. No one can dispute that.

The Peoples Democratic Party has been in crisis for months as Wike, a member of the party, and four other PDP governors collectively known as the G5 have demanded the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu, the party’s national chairman. They claim northerners shouldn’t serve as both the party’s national chairman and presidential candidate.
