Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike says he never told the public the method by which he would disclose his choice of presidential candidate.
Wike, a leading member of the Peoples Democratic Party is regarded as leader of the G5 aggrieved governors who have refused to campaign for the party’s candidate in the 2023 presidential elections unless National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu resigns.
Subsequently, Former Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dakuku Peterside, challenged Wike to name his preferred presidential candidate as expected.
But the Rivers governor fired back at the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, noting that he never, at any point, revealed the mode for announcing his preferred candidate.
“Look at the man who is always failing every day. He does not understand the activities of G5. I have told most people who don’t know, G5 that we’re fighting is like guerilla warfare. The more you look, the less you see.
“I never told anybody one day, I will bring a camera and announce to you this is who will go. I said I will tell Rivers people the candidate they will support. I did not tell you the method of saying it. I did not tell you I will bring live coverage and say it. But Rivers people know.”
