The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has said that his statement over Olusegun Obasanjo’s endorsement of Labour Party’s Peter Obi was not made to mock the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
He insisted that he made the statement out of concern as he is worried about the political well-being of the PDP.
The governor stated this while flagging off a new road project in Obio Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State on Tuesday.
Wike said his comments about Obi’s endorsement by Obasanjo were taken out of context.
According to Wike, he prayed that Obasanjo would keep quiet and not endorse anyone because anything contrary would affect the PDP.
