Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi says the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, does not need the logistics support of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
Umahi said rather, Tinubu needs the votes of the people of the oil-rich state.
Umahi, an APC governor and one of the coordinators of Tinubu’s campaign in the South-East, made this known on Tuesday when he commissioned the Akpabu-Itu-Umudiogha road in the Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers at the invitation of Wike.
“You are a doer of promise,” Umahi told Wike. “When you say you will give logistics support, you will but in APC, we don’t need logistics support, we need votes, just for the presidential one only, please.
“All I am asking is that presidential one, that presidential one keep it for Asiwaju (Tinubu) and Asiwaju will be coming here to solicit votes.”
Wike, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governor, not on good terms with his party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, had promised logistics support for the campaigns of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi; and his New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) counterpart, Rabiu Kwankwaso who recently commissioned projects in Rivers.
