The 2023 governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu State, Josef Onoh, has condemned criticisms directed at Senator Chimaroke Nnamani and Governor Nyesom Wike for supporting APC Presidential Candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Onoh, had also openly canvassed support for Tinubu despite being a card-carrying PDP member in Enugu State.
Onoh who spoke in Enugu on Wednesday said that Nnamani was bold to state the fact that, "politics is not about suppressing accuracies but about stating the obvious footprints of statesmen who have made contributions in their societies.
Ne said: “Chimaroke Nnamani has given the South East a first-class view and information based on facts about the man, Bola Tinubu.
"It’s sad to see all forms of political accusations painting Asiwaju bad, but like in the words of the Rivers State governor, ‘e go de pain dem, we go de go’ and I can assure people that Asiwaju is as fit as a bull.
"The only ailment Asiwaju is suffering at the moment is his impatience for us to go to the field where he will get a resounding victory.’’
On the part of Governor Wike and his battle with some PDP stalwarts, Onoh charged the people in PDP to pull from the deceiving leaders of the party and stop attacks on Governor Wike for inviting his fellow governors, irrespective of political party affiliations, to commission projects in Rivers State.
"All the Governors of Southern Nigeria, that the next President of Nigeria should come from the South, whether in the PDP or in the APC, but behold our own party the PDP goofed while the APC got it right. So how do you blame Wike for this tragic failure of the PDP?
“It was based on that agreement that Wike went ahead and ran for the Presidency in his party, the PDP, irrespective of the sad betrayals that occurred in the field during the presidential primaries.
”If a southern presidential candidate had emerged in the PDP aside Wike, I am certain that the Rivers Governor would have cued behind such a southern candidate.
