Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has pledged logistics support for Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso’s presidential campaign in the state.
Wike, whose camp has been feuding with the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, gave similar assurance to the presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, last week.
Kwankwaso was in Rivers State at the instance of Wike to inaugurate the Mgbuitanwo internal road in Emohua LGA of the state.
Speaking during the event, Wike described Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), as a man of integrity and among leaders that Nigeria needs.
“If you’re coming for campaign here, I will give you the logistic support for you to campaign. You’re a former governor,” he said.
He, however, told Kwankwaso that it is difficult for any other party to win in Rivers State, therefore, it will be futile for him to waste resources, thinking any candidate of his party will win election in the state.
Kwankwaso commended Governor Wike for engaging Julius Berger Nigeria PLC to deliver the best quality road in a rural community.
Such gesture, Kwankwaso noted, speaks of a leader who loves his people and is doing the best to better their lot across sectors, including the provision of quality educational infrastructure.
Kwankwaso stressed that those who are undermining the capability of the PDP G-5, particularly governor Wike, are doing so at their peril politically, “because Rivers State, like Kano and Lagos, is critical to winning any election.”
