Don’t Worry About Those Envious Of You, Wike Tells Obi

Michael Chukwuebuka, Reporting

GOVERNOR of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has urged the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi to ignore critics, especially those from Anambra who are envious of him.

The Rivers governor said this on Thursday during the inauguration of the Nkpolu-Oroworokwo Flyover in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

Stonix News reports that Obi was a special guest of honour at the inauguration which was attended by a massive crowd who chanted the name of the LP flagbearer when he mounted the podium to speak.

Wike said Obi shouldn’t worry about his envious critics, as a man’s enemies will always be people of his household.

“We have worked and you know we have worked. One reason I also brought you (Obi) is that I know you also worked well in Anambra,” Wike told Obi.

“Some people because of the level you are now, they are envying you in your state. They can come out and say all kind of rubbish.

“Don’t worry, that is how it is; it is your home person that will kill you first, so don’t bother about those things.

“I have always told people when you are given opportunity, use it to showcase what you can do, stop criticising somebody who has left, you have been given the opportunity now show it.

“I am a professor, professor well, I am a doctor, doctor well, I am a lawyer, lawyer well, I am a mechanic, mechanic well,” the governor said.

Recall that during the week, Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuma Soludo and Obi were engaged in altercations on the state of Anambra economy.

Soludo, a former CBN governor, had said the investments Obi left in government were worth next to nothing.

The professor in a lengthy letter also said Obi couldn’t win the 2023 presidential election as there are “two persons/parties seriously contesting for president.”

In his response, however, Obi said that as a trader, he did his little as governor of Anambra and urged Soludo to do better than him as a professor of economics.
