Wike reveals plans by Buhari to impose a presidential aspirant on the PDP
Wike stated this while speaking with newsmen at Government House in Port Harcourt.
According to him, a head of a Security agency was currently manipulating some individuals within the PDP to favor one aspirant. He noted that he will not be misled or blindfolded to support a PDP candidate who will act as a snitch in the party.
“But one thing you must take home is that I cannot be misled, I cannot be blindfolded; I know what’s going on. I know what the Presidency and the APC are doing to plant a presidential aspirant in the PDP.” he noted
“I have not even mentioned how a very senior official of a security agency in the country told me which of the candidates to support.
“You can imagine me as a governor and the head of a security agency would tell me to support one or two persons.
“Head of security agency who is in a government controlled by the APC; come on, you direct me on who to support for president?
“At the end of the day, the leadership of the party will meet at the state level and decide where we are headed. Then we will all be together. No one individual can do it alone. So, Rivers State will move as a team, I will listen to the leadership of the party and then we will move forward.
“Who are we going to support? Where is the national survey? Who is more popular? This is how politics is played. I challenge any of the presidential aspirants from the North who has gone to other governors and they have given them campaign coordinators; I challenge them to mention if I have given them one name.”
