Wike said this known on Friday night at a banquet organised by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers for the PDP Group of Five Governors (PDP G5 Governors) who were in Port Harcourt for the party’s state-level campaign flag-off on Saturday.
The Rivers governor has since attracted criticisms from certain quarters for his support for Obi at the expense of his party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
However, on Friday night, Wike said, “They said I said I’m supporting Obi, I have no regret to say: Obi is a former governor, if he is coming to Rivers State to campaign, I will give him logistics support, I will give him security.
Wike also challenged his counterparts in the Niger Delta zone to account for the huge sums of monies received by them as backlog for the 13% oil derivation since 1999, which was approved and paid by President Muhammadu Buhari.
For months, Wike and four other PDP have demanded the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu as PDP national chairman as a precondition to support Atiku.
