Following the speculation that he might not be chosen as the running mate to Atiku Abubakar, the Rivers state governor, Nelson Wike as said that he wouldn't decamp from the party.
He made this assertion known through a statement by his media aid. Wike debunked the veracity of a video that connoted that he his planning to leave the party and join the ruling APC.
The excerpt of the interview in circulation has been deliberately manipulated by some desperate and unscrupulous persons with obnoxious agenda.
The intent of the video being circulated is to mislead the unsuspecting public, particularly members of the PDP.
We, hereby urge the public to disregard the manipulated video.
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 cancerous APC."
