Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State claims that during the presidential campaign, he never voiced opposition to the candidates of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, and the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu.
Wike made this known in the Etche Local Government Area of Rivers State, during the opening of the Chokocho-Igbodo Road.
He also explained that his position was to support the transfer of power from Nigeria’s North to its South, and he is still adamant in that regard.
He said: “Whether you voted for Labour, I have no problem with you. Whether you voted for APC, I have no problem with you. That is what we have argued for: that the north has had it for eight years. Therefore the south must be there for eight years.
“As far as I am concerned, anybody from the south, that is my position. That is what we agreed in the Integrity Group that we must make sure that the south emerges as the next President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“Each time I went for a campaign, nobody has ever heard me criticise Obi. Nobody has ever heard me criticise Asiwaju. I owe nobody any apology that people voted for the southern presidency.”
