Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, yesterday pledged to support the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, with logistics for his campaign in Rivers State.

Wike, who invited the Labour Party candidate to inaugurate the Nkpolu-Oroworokwo Flyover in Port-Harcourt, added that Obi had all the characteristics to lead Nigeria.

For months, crisis has rocked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as Wike, a PDP member, and four other PDP governors known as the G5 have demanded the resignation of the national chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, saying northerners should not be both the PDP national chairman and presidential candidate.

Wike also invited the President Muhammadu Buhari and former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, to inaugurate projects in the state, both from the ruling party, APC.
