Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said he has no plans to dump the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
An interview he had with Arise TV was misconstrued to mean that the Governor was going to defect following the outcome of the PDP presidential primary.
Wike had emerged second to Atiku who clinched the PDP presidential ticket, an outcome that led many to believe he might dump the PDP.
His media aide, Kelvin Ebiri, in a statement said his principal had no such plans to dump the party that gave him a rise in his political career.
“Governor Wike has repeatedly maintained that he will never, under any circumstances, defect from the PDP, which has offered him the platform to excel in his political career.
“We urge the public to ignore the distorted video. Those behind it are desperately wicked and intend to mislead the public. Governor Wike remains a faithful, committed member of the PDP and will never leave it for the cancerous APC,” the statement read in part.
