Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has spoken out on his alleged plans to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Newsbreak.ng reports that this is coming after a video surfaced online where Wike allegedly threatened to defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Reacting to the above video, Wike’s media aide, Kelvin Ebiri said the video was an excerpt of an old interview the governor granted to a popular television station while reacting to the defection of the Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, from the PDP to the APC.
Ebiri said, “Governor Wike has repeatedly maintained that he will never, under any circumstances, defect from the PDP, which has offered him the platform to excel in his political career.
“We urge the public to ignore the distorted video. Those behind it are desperately wicked and intend to mislead the public. Governor Wike remains a faithful, committed member of the PDP and will never leave it for the cancerous APC,” the statement read in part.
