Port Harcourt: Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has mocked the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, over former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s endorsement of Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi.
The governor stated that Obasanjo’s refusal to endorse Atiku demonstrates that there is something fundamentally wrong with Atiku, who served as Obasanjo’s vice president from 1999 to 2003.
Wike found it amusing that the engineer of the same legacies on which Atiku was campaigning did not endorse him but instead supported Obi.
The governor was speaking during the flagging off of a road project in Emohua Local Government Area of the state on Monday.
In his word: “If you are bad product, you are a bad product, if you are a good product, you are a good product.
“You worked under somebody, the person has recommended to Nigerians another person, is it me?
“I worked with somebody for eight years and we are using it as a campaign that when we were in office we did well, then my boss is recommending another person to be there, something is fundamentally wrong.
“I was praying that Obasanjo should not say anything, when I saw the letter last night I was touched.
“If your principal does not recommend you, then there’s something fundamentally wrong. ”
