Governor Wike throw shades at Atiku as over Obasanjo support for Peter Obi
Nyesom Wike, the governor of River State, has made fun of Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential candidate, for receiving former president Olusegun Obasanjo’s endorsement of Peter Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party.
The governor claimed that Obasanjo’s decision to refrain from endorsing Atiku demonstrated that Atiku, who served as Obasanjo’s vice president from 1999 to 2003, has serious flaws.
The governor found it amusing that the engineer of the same legacy that Atiku was running on neglected to endorse him and chose to support Obi.
He was addressing on Monday at the beginning of a road project in the state’s Emohua Local Government Area.
Wike said: “If you are bad product, you are a bad product, if you are a good product, you are a good product.
“You worked under somebody, the person has recommended to Nigerians another person, is it me?
“I worked with somebody for eight years and we are using it as a campaign that when we were in office we did well, then my boss is recommending another person to be there, something is fundamentally wrong.
“I was praying that Obasanjo should not say anything, when I saw the letter last night I was touched.
“If your principal does not recommend you, then there’s something fundamentally wrong. ”
