President-elect Bola Tinubu, on Wednesday, praised Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike over his crucial contributions towards his victory at the recently-concluded presidential election.
Tinubu made this disclosure when he spoke in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital before he commissioned some projects in the state.
He thanked Wike for the support he gave him during the February 25 Presidential election, adding he would not have won Rivers State without the governor’s structural support.
“Governor Wike, you are very dependable. It is an honour and privilege to be in your presence today,” Tinubu said.
“I am very happy to be in your presence today. I say thank you for your contribution to my victory.
“I could not have done it without your structural support. You promoted justice, thank you.”
Tinubu won the presidential election in Governor, Nyesom Wike’s Obio Akpor Local Government Area with 80,239 votes, which eventually proved crucial as the APC candidate emerged victorious in the elections.
