Why we are not bothered by Wike’s ‘endorsement’ of Peter Obi – Atiku Campaign



The Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation has explained why it was not bothered by the endorsement of the candidate of Labour Party, LP Peter Obi by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State..

Wike, a member of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP had in Port Harcourt on Thursday promised to provide logistic support to Obi anytime he comes to Rivers for campaign.

However, the Director of Strategic Communications of the organisation, Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation, Dele Momodu, said there was no cause for worry since Wike and his colleagues in the group of governors of PDP are still in the party

Momodu who said this while addressing newsmen in Abuja.

Momodu, who was responding to question on weather the council was concerned that Gov. Nyesom Wike of Delta seemingly endorsed the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi in Port Harcourt on Thursday.

Momodu said that he was aware that was not the first visit of Obi to Port Harcourt and his host by Wike.

He, however, said that the fact that the governors still stayed in PDP was a signal of possible reconciliation.

“On the Issue of the governors, I am not clairvoyant, I am not a prophet, I have no idea whether they have dumped the party or not.

” The day they do they will announce that they have dumped the party. We will all know.

“So far so good, they are still in the party and we are happy they are in the party.

“There is still room for reconciliation, all they are saying is that they are not happy and we will continue to pray that peace will reign in the party.

“What he has been able to do in public life what he has been able to do in private life when you look at them you will know that he is the most experienced and prepared candidate in the race

“Today, there is none close to him. He is the one that operated at the national level so he knows what to do immediately,” Momodu said.
