“Peter Obi Likes Good Things” – Wike Counters Many On Ex-governor’s Lifestyle



The governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, on Thursday, described the 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, as a man who loves the good things in life.

Speaking during the commissioning of the Nkpolu-Oroworokwo Flyover in Port Harcourt, the state capital city, Wike said unlike people’s perception of Peter Obi, the former governor is not poor.

Wike’s remarks follow the belief by many that Obi is not one to give in to unnecessary spending or an extravagant lifestyle.

Peter Obi has severally used the slogan, “we no dey give shishi” to explain that he would not champion a governance system where leaders steal from public funds to live any kind of ostentatious lifestyles.

The former governor known for the above slogan also preaches a lean governance system – a wide contradiction to what is practised by many leaders across the country.

“I judged you when I came to your house in Anambra. You know when people see you, they think that you don’t like good things. “I went to your house and I just stayed in your house and I looked around.
