Nigerians would’ve voted Obi if he was better than Tinubu – Wike

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike is of the opinion that Nigerians would have voted for Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi during the February 25 polls, if he was a better candidate.

Wike spoke on Wednesday, August 30 while featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme.

The former Rivers State governor noted that he supported President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who contested on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, at the expense of Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the keenly contested poll.

Speaking further, Wike said doesn’t discuss presidential candidates any longer and is more concerned with the decisions by the president.

Wike said; “I don’t discuss presidential candidates any longer; I discuss the economy, the president, what he has to offer. “If he (Obi) would have been better, Nigerians would have voted for him.”

The leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele revealed the vision that God showed him about the 2023 general elections and key political actors.

He said that the Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike’s relationship with the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC) would not last.

In a statement released by his media aide, Oluwatosin Oshoto, the clergyman said the cabals making decisions in the incoming government of the APC would fight Wike.

Primate Ayodele explained that the governor would be made to pay dearly for some of his actions in recent times.

The man of God also stated that after the inauguration on May 29, several things will change, adding that those who expect to have the lion’s share may end up not getting anything because appointments will break the ruling party.

He said: “Wike’s relationship with APC will not last. Cabals will fight him mercilessly, and he will be made to pay dearly, but he will not understand now. APC will teach him a big lesson, including other PDP defectors.

“After May 29, many things will change and several things will turn around. Those who expect the lion’s share may not get anything. Appointments will break APC after the inauguration.”
