Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has revealed that the aggrieved governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) did not agree to support the candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, in the just-concluded presidential election. Wike made this known on Wednesday during a live media chat in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

The Rivers governor stated that the G-5 governors only reached an agreement and formulated strategies to ensure the emergence of a Southern President. Wike stated that the aim of PDP governors was equity, fairness, and justice, saying that they are happy that a Southern president has emerged.

He said: “There was never a time the integrity Group met and say it must be this person. We only agreed on the Southern President. We formulated strategies and the southern President emerged. Our interest is that a southern President should emerge.

“When we went to our meeting, we decided on the Southern President. We didn’t say it must be this. We said whatever you are doing it must be the Southern President. The aim of G5 was equity, fairness, and justice”.

Speaking further, Wike said some of his colleagues such as Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu; Samuel Ortom of Benue, and Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia made huge sacrifices to ensure the emergence of a Southern President.

He said though Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state won his re-election, he had earlier said he would not mind sacrificing his second term in the interest of the unity of Nigeria.

He said: “Ortom said even if he loses his senatorial election, let equity, justice, and fairness prevail. He may not gain it now. But history will be kind to him. The same applies to Ugwuanyi and Ikpeazu. Even Makinde said even if he lost his governorship ambition, he was interested in the unity of Nigeria”.

When asked whether justice and equity prevailed since the southeast did not produce the President, Wike said the winning capacity of an individual and his party must also be taken into consideration.

Shut your dirty mouth up you drunkard. Between Tinubu and Obi who is the EQUITY, JUSTICE and FAIRNESS? Stupid man. You misled your colleagues. Now Nigerians know why you have been in loggerhead with Amaechi.  Just finish up your term and come out. You will see pepper.
