A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant, Nyesom Wike, has said he did not participate in any meeting where zoning of the governorship in Rivers State was agreed.
Wike, who spoke in Port Harcourt during an interactive session with stakeholders in the state, challenged anyone with the records of such an agreement to make it public.
He noted that all claims by some politicians on the issue were personal opinions. The former Minister of State for Education stated that the spread of his associates and supporters cut across the 23 local government areas of the state, stressing that he would win both the PDP governorship primary and general elections in the state.
He said contrary to insinuations in certain quarters, he would not spend his time probing the outgoing administration if elected as the state was in dire need of development on the fast lane after years of non-performance.
Asked whether he would commence negotiations with 16 aggrieved governorship aspirants of the PDP, Wike said the said aspirants posed no threat to the victory of PDP, saying there was no need to negotiate with them.
He said: “The beauty of democracy is that people are talking. I discuss when there is a threat to PDP. Why should I discuss with them when the governor bought forms for most of them?” Agency report
