The Governor of Rivers, Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has kicked against the arrangement for a consensus Presidential candidate in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
According to him, the consensus arrangement id rubbish and fake news used in deceiving PDP members.
The outspoken Governor, speaking with PDP delegates and members in Calabar, the Cross River State capital, on Wednesday noted that the Presidential aspirant said consensus could only happen through equity, justice, and fairness.
Wike said: “I am not here for any consensus rubbish. I have told people not to deceive our party members with fake news about consensus. We all believe in consensus, but it must come with equity, justice, and fairness.
“When some of my colleagues led by the former Senate President came to me, I told them I would not fall into the consensus trap. If you want to run for election, please run, and if you are not ready, please go home.
“They want somebody who would come and bow down for them. But what the country needs now is fearless and courageous somebody.”
