Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, has taken a swipe on those accusing him and his Benue State counterpart, Samuel Ortom, of frustrating the micro-zoning of the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the South East geopolitical zone.
Wike spoke yesterday at Itu Bridge Head, in Itu community, Emohua local government area of the state, venue of the flag-off of the Akpabu- Odido Road project.
The governor noted that while southern cross-party consultations were going on, there were people in the PDP who were bent on frustrating the eventual zoning of the party’s presidential ticket to the South.
He accused the Presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar of buying the forms when the zoning committee was set up to frustrate the recommendation of the zoning committee.
The governor urged the presidential candidate of the PDP leave him out of the attendant challenges he is facing in the party.
