Non-indigenes Association in Rivers State has called on Rivers State Governor to back the presidential candidate of Labour Party, Dr. Peter Obi, to win the presidential election in 2023.
They advised Wike not to leave the former Anambra State governor (Obi) who is much younger than his two other main rivals.
Chairman of the association, High Chief Felix Ogbegbor, made the call during a media briefing in Port Harcourt.
Ogbegbor said Wike should not make the mistake of supporting the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, and that of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, saying they have nothing to offer the country.
They explained that as governor of Anambra State, Obi performed well and left a clean record, pointing out that he has a better agenda to reposition the country.
Ogbegbor, noted that among the three candidates fielded by the APC, PDP, and LP, that Peter Obi stands out and is most preferred because of his record of performance and integrity, hence their call on Wike to support him.
He said Nigeria currently doesn’t need a leader above 70 years old, saying Tinubu and Atiku cannot lead the nation out of its current economic and security challenges.
