Presidential aspirant and the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has revealed why the former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi dumped the Peoples Democratic Party.
Recall that Peter Obi tendered his resignation letter on Wednesday, stating that the practices of the party make it impossible for him to remain in the party.
Wike while speaking on Channels TV said Obi left the party because he does not have the chance of winning the presidential ticket of the party.
The Rivers State Governor said, “Peter Obi leaving the party is not surprising to me. He knows that there is no way he would have won the presidential primaries. Forget about what Doyin Okuope said about sharing money.
“How can someone who has gone to almost all the states telling them about how he is a trader and how he wore one shoe and does not allow people to carry his bag leave a party three days to the primaries?
“From what I read on social media, he wants to join NNPP, but Kwankwaso wants to be president. So, does he want to be Vice President? This is what I am saying, in everything you do, integrity and character are very important. You can be the best economist but you don’t have character.”
