Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, claims that he has never opposed Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential contender.
Wike stated he never conspired against any southern presidential contender during the February 25th presidential election during a strategic meeting with petroleum marketers in Rivers State.
The governor asserted that his position during the presidential election was founded on the ideals of equality, fairness, and justice while being represented by his chief of staff, Emeka Woke.
“You can agree with me that there are a lot of insinuations and misinformation that his excellency worked against the Labour Party presidential candidate.
“I want to stand here to tell you and of course, you know that his excellency is a man who will stand by his words any time any day and speak his mind.
“His excellency did not work against any southern presidential candidate. The position of his excellency is that of equity and fairness.
“The north has done their eight years and so it is time for the south. That is his excellency’s position. He did not hide it, he spoke about it. And so my brothers, there is nothing to shy away from because our hands are clean.” Woke said.
It was reported that the event had in attendance, national leaders and members of the Petroleum Product Retail Outlet Owners Association of Nigeria, the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria and the Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers.
