Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has raised an alarm, warning members of his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of some party’s Presidential aspirants that have been planted to destroy the party.
The Governor stressed that some of the PDP Presidential aspirants are being sponsored by the APC and the Presidency.
He made it clear that nobody can mislead him neither can anybody blindfold the people of Rivers State into supporting a presidential aspirant with compromised credentials.
In a statement by his Special Assistant on Electronic Media, Simeon Nwakaudu, Governor Wike denied assigning campaign coordinator to any of the presidential aspirants from the north, who he said had gone to other governors and have been given campaign coordinators.
He said that several presidential aspirants have been coming to visit him and to request he nominate a liaison in support of their candidature, but he declined.
Wike mentioned former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Alhaji Sule Lamido, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, Senate President Bukola Saraki, Governor AminuTambuwal of Sokoto State, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau and Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa among those who have visited him.
He claimed that the head of one of the security agencies in the country had approached him to support one of the presidential aspirants.
