The popular Nigeria presidential candidate made three promises, which are as follows;
“I will talk to my people and we will negotiate. If we leave the state for him (referring to Wike), he will leave the federal for us. We will negotiate it. We know you’re in charge.”
“We will not quarrel with you. Anybody who quarrels with you doesn’t know what he is doing. I will not try it. I’m begging. Please give us this one and take the other one. We will leave it for you. I will accommodate them in the other one.”
“I assure you of our commitment to building a better Nigeria. Our past will not be our future. Datti and I represent the future of Nigeria. I have told Nigerians to hold me responsible. I will not give excuses. I know the problems of Nigeria.”
Peter Obi also praised Wike for his work as governor of Rivers state.
