Nyesom Wike, the Rivers State Governor, has maintained that he has no preferred presidential aspirant among those jostling for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, ticket.
Speaking during an interview with TVC at the Government House Port Harcourt, the governor said he has “no preferred aspirant for now,” adding that “no single governor can determine the presidential candidate for the PDP.”
He also noted that Rivers people will resist any attempt by the All Progressives Congress, APC-Federal Government to rig the 2019 elections.
Noting that APC-led Federal Government had no single project in the state, Wike insisted that rigging was the only option left for the Federal Government.
The Governor, however, warned that the option will fail.
He said, “The people will resist. The people will stand their ground and insist that their votes must count. You saw the way the people resisted at the National Assembly when the DSS invaded, that is how it will be in 2019. The people will stand firm.
“You saw a Rivers girl lead the resistance. That is a Rivers girl. The hallmark of our courage as a people. This is not resistance by arms. We don’t need to go and carry arms. How many people can the federal might kill?
“People should understand that Nigeria has gone beyond that point when anything you do, you get away with it. You see what happened at the National Assembly, could we have imagined in this world that the DG DSS would have been sacked?”
