2023: Is That A Man? Is That Character? Wike Tackles APC Candidate, Tonye Cole

Governor Nyesom Wike has berated the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Rivers State, Tonye Cole saying he lacks the character needed to be a leader.

Wike called out the APC candidate over his decision to congratulate Asiwaju Bola Tinubu for winning the presidential election and then pulling down the same post minutes later.

Speaking on Monday at Okomoko Community Field during the inauguration of the Chokocho-Igbodo Road in Etche Local Government Area, the Rivers State Governor said Cole lacks the character to steer the affairs of the state.

He also alleged that the APC governorship candidate voted for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar during the February 25 presidential election in Nigeria.

He said: “People are terrible in politics, those who cannot stand for what they say. When I say something, you can go home and sleep, knowing that I said something.

“Look at the APC candidate (Tonye Cole), he posted on social media, congratulating Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, but within one hour, he pulled it down. Is that a man? Is that character?

“I don’t understand. This is a man who all of them, both their leader, even some of them who claimed they’re in PDP, all of them in this state voted against a southern presidency.

“They voted Atiku Abubakar. The same people now turned around to say, support me (Tonye Cole), it’s only Wike that did not support Obi.

“Look at people who don’t have character, are they the ones you want as governor of Rivers State? I have character, go to anywhere, I have character. There are characters whom you cannot trust.”
