Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State says the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu has the best character and courage to rule Nigeria.
Wike spoke in Port Harcourt, the State capital, while receiving Tinubu shortly after the APC candidate’s campaign rally in the State yesterday.
Wike said he owed nobody an apology for endorsing Tinubu and wished him luck in his presidential bid.
The Rivers governor, however, charged Tinubu not to encourage further funding on the APC guber candidate in Rivers, Tonye Cole, saying he has no chance against Siminaliayi Fubura, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who Wike projects to succeed him.
“I have no apology to anybody to say nobody born of a woman can intimidate me. You have never changed party one day.
“That tells of your character and courage and that is what we require in this country.
“But let me advise you, don’t spend any more money on your governorship candidate here (Rivers)”, he told Tinubu.
