2023 Presidency: G-5 Governors has not reached deal with anybody- Wike

The Governor of Rivers, Nyesom Wike has said that the G-5 governors have not reached a deal with any presidential candidate ahead of forthcoming election.

The Governor made this statement on Friday during the flag-off of the construction of Eneka-Igbo Etche Road, in Rivers State.

It should be noted that the  G-5 include Wike, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), and Samuel Ortom (Benue). They have been in a running battle with Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate following the party’s presidential primary.

The group had insisted that the National Chairman of the Party, Iyorchia Ayu, must resign.

Dismissing speculations that the group has backed a candidate ahead of the next presidential election, Wike described them as untrue.

“[They said] Wike had an interview with BBC and he said we have a deal with so and so. Meanwhile, no video, no audio. And some of you waste your time listening to such things.

“So, my dear people, I just want to tell you that whatever decision I will take, I will let you know. I cannot take any decision without taking advice from you,” Wike said.
