- Meanwhile, the Rivers Governor had invited the presidential hopefuls to his state for the commissioning of important projects carried out by his administration
Former presidential aide Reno Omokri has offered an interpretation of Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike’s logistics support promise to the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi and his counterpart of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso.
A large crowd of supporters trooped out to receive the Obi who arrived in Rivers state, Port Harcourt last Thursday to commission Ikoku flyover built by Wike’s administration.
Wike invited Obi, Kwankwaso to Rivers, shun Atiku
During the inauguration of the project, he pledged to provide the former Anambra Governor with logistics support whenever he desires to campaign in the state.
“Each time you want to campaign in the state, let me know, all the logistics support, we will give to you.
“I know you as a person, you have all the criteria, you have all the characteristics to lead this country, you have it. Nobody can deny that.”
Wike made similar promise to Kwankwaso during the latter’s inauguration of the Mgbutanwo Internal roads in the Emohua Local Government Area of Port Harcourt; Rivers State on Monday.
“I have known you and I know you are a man of integrity so I want to say that whenever you want to campaign in Rivers State, I will provide you with all your logistics, just let me know when you want to come.”
Reno analysed the promise made by Wike to Obi and Kwankwaso
Analysing Wike’s pledge to the two flag bearers, tableshaker said it was the River Governor’s way of saying they’ll lose in the 2033 polls, assisting them to lose well, The Nation reported.
His tweet on his Twitter page was particularly directed at the ‘Obidients’ who he noted regarded Wike’s promise of ‘logistical support’ to their principal as an endorsement.
“I hope Obidients, who were celebrating Wike’s promise of ‘logistical support’ to Obi as an endorsement, heard what Wike told Kwankwaso yesterday. He gave the same promise of ‘logistical support’. Another way of saying ‘you will lose’ so I will help you lose well! #TableShaker.”
PDP Crisis: Wike, other G5 governors have no issue with Atiku, party chieftain drops bombshell, gives reason
Reno Omokri, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and an ex-aide to President Goodluck Jonathan, has shed more light on the crisis rocking the opposition party.
Speaking on Arise TV over the weekend, November 12, Omokri insisted that the crisis rocking the PDP is not about the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, versus the aggrieved governors led by Nyesom Wike of Rivers state.
However, Omokri said the crisis is between the governors and the party's national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.

He said Obi, the flag bearer of the Labour Party, and his supporters called “Obidients” have disrupted the Nigerian political space.
Omokri, a staunch supporter of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, noted that the movement was too strong to be disregarded and anyone who tries to do so is not politically conscious.
