Non-indigenes Association in Rivers State has called on Governor Wike to support the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, to win the forthcoming 2023 general elections.

The Chairman of the association, High Chief Felix Ogbegbor, disclosed this during a media briefing in Port Harcourt.

Ogbegbor 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.

He said, “I think Peter Obi is the best person that Wike should support. Atiku Abubakar and Bola Tinubu don’t have anything to offer.

“If you look at it, Atiku, when he was the Vice President, he was busy buying Nigeria. Tinubu is out of the race because he bought the whole of Lagos as a governor.

“If Atiku and Tinubu cannot step down, Wike should support Peter Obi. We don’t need an elderly person in that office again. The others are above 70 and we don’t need people now.

“If Wike supports Obi, we will be right behind him,” he said, saying the association comprising non+indigenes across the country has passed a conference vote on Governor Wike.

The group chairman noted that: “the governor of Rivers State is a pride of the people. Wike has all it takes to be Nigeria’s president. We are here to support a young man who knows what it takes to please his people.

“Wike for the past seven years we have not seen the kind of development he is driving before. He always attracts good things to Rivers State

“That is why we have decided to follow him. Whatever he (Wike) says we should do that is what we will do.

“What person he wants to vote we will. Anywhere he goes we will go, ” Ogbegbor said.
