Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State said the G-5, aggrieved governors of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, have not struck a deal with any presidential candidate ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Wike stated this during the flag-off of the construction of Eneka-Igbo Etche Road in Port Harcourt on Friday.

He said,
Wike however, urged ‘detractors’ to leave members of the G-5, saying, ““I just want to enjoy myself and my family.”

The Rivers governor, maintained that he is not contesting an election next year and thus should not be the subject of speculations.

Meanwhile, Wike has accused Atiku of holding secret meetings with governors of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and failing to keep to his promise of not having the PDP presidential candidate and the party’s chairman from the same region (North).

The G-5, includes Wike, Governors Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), and Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia).

Recall that the G-5 have been at loggerheads with the PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar following the fall out at the party’s presidential primary.

Wike, who lost to Atiku, believes the process was unfair and the five governors maintain that the PDP National Chairman Iyorchia Ayu, a northerner, must resign. Since the crisis, there have been speculations that the group has backed a candidate for the presidential election.

But the Rivers governor has yanked off the reports, describing them as fake.
