Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has disclosed that he won’t be vying for the position of Vice President in the 2019 election.
He disclosed that though some of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential aspirants seeking his support, had offered him the the vice president slot, he remains committed to the interest of Rivers State.
Wike said this during an interview on the Osasu Show at the Government House Port Harcourt on Thursday.
According to him, “There are aspirants who have promised me the position of the Vice President, but I said I will not seek the position.
“Not even in the dream will I seek that position at this point. I am a first-term governor and the National Chairman of PDP is from my State and the South-South.
“These are mere allegations. People can carry rumours, but everything I will do, will be in the interest of Rivers State. Nobody can use Rivers State as a tool. They did that in the past, but not anymore.”
