Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said something is fundamentally wrong with Atiku’s ambition to become the nation’s president.
According to Wike, for former president, Olusegun Obasanjo to have recommended Peter Obi as against Atiku who claims to be the engineer of Obasanjo’s legacy shows something is not right.
The governor said it was funny that the engineer of the same legacies upon which Atiku was campaigning failed to recommend him but instead endorsed Obi.
He was speaking during the flag off of a road project in Emohua Local Government Area of the state on Monday.
Wike said: “If you are bad product, you are a bad product, if you are a good product, you are a good product.
“You worked under somebody, the person has recommended to Nigerians another person, is it me?
“I worked with somebody for eight years and we are using it as a campaign that when we were in office we did well, then my boss is recommending another person to be there, something is fundamentally wrong.
“I was praying that Obasanjo should not say anything, when I saw the letter last night I was touched.
“If your principal does not recommend you, then there’s something fundamentally wrong. ”
