Written by Olarotimi Oshin on March 10, 2023
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said he did not support the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Mr Peter Obi overtly at the Feb. 25th election because nobody discussed Igbo presidency with him.
According to Newsmen Publicity Secretary of Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide, Dr Alex Ogbonnia, stated today in Enugu that Wike made the declaration at a meeting the socio-political group had with him in Port Harcourt on Thursday.
Ogbonnia stated that at the meeting, Ohaneze Ndigbo confronted Wike over his alleged role against Obi during the presidential election.
He stated that Governor Wike expressed surprise that Ohanaeze was on a fact-finding mission and would explain his role in the presidential election.
According to Ogbonnia, the Rivers governor explained that the Southern Governors Forum first met at Asaba and agreed that power must shift to the South after President Muhammadu Buhari.
