The Rivers state chapter of the Labour Party, LP has criticized Governor Nyesom Wike, over speculations about his support for the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC Bola Tinubu.
Favour Reuben, national vice chairman of the South South branch of the Labour Party, claimed that Wike’s actions and decisions were motivated by self-interest during a press conference with journalists on Tuesday in Port Harcourt.
Governor Wike previously compared the Peoples Democratic Party, or PDP, to malaria and the All Progressives Congress, or APC, to cancer. According to Reuben, Wike should have instead looked for Peter Obi, who he claimed is the remedy for these fatal diseases.
“We are hearing that our Governor (Wike, who few years back declared our state as a Christian State because he was running for election, has made a U-turn overnight and suddenly decided to form an alliance with Muslim – Muslim ticket because of his personal interest.
“The Wike we all know is not a coward that will surreptitiously ask his PDP followers to work for Tinubu of the APC without coming out openly, but if this is true, then we are in trouble and our PVCs should speak for us, being the only tool at our disposal to usher in a Government that will ameliorate our suffering, both at the State and Federal level.
“Secondly, our Governor (Wike) said APC is cancer, while PDP is malaria, so I will be expecting the Governor to look for the cure of these deadly diseases and the only cure is the Labour Party driven by Peter Gregory Obi, who has been tested and trusted in Governance.”
