The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has said he will support his Lagos State counterpart, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, even though they don’t belong to the same political parties.
Wike stated this during a conference organised by the wives of Lagos State officials on Tuesday at Eko Hotel, Lagos.
The Rivers governor explained that his presence at the event is because Sanwo-Olu is “doing well” for the people of the state.
Wike said: “If Sanwo-Olu is not doing well, even if he belongs to my party, I won’t come. So, for me, if you are in my party and you are not doing well, you won’t see me.
“If you are not in my party and you are doing well, you will see me and that is what I stand for. And I will not regret to say that I’m in support of you.”
Sanwo-Olu is currently seeking re-election as Governor of Lagos on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), while Wike, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), will complete his second term in office in 2023.
