Governor Nyesom Wike on Tuesday claimed the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, spent the sum of N10 billion to fight him during the 2019 governorship election.

Governor Nyesom Wike has denied authorising the flood of 2023 presidential campaign posters bearing his name in major streets of Abuja since Monday.

Wike in a swift denial through Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Paulinus Nsirim, stated, “For the avoidance of doubt, Governor Wike has not informed anyone that he is interested in the Presidency of this country.

“This is certainly the handiwork of mischief makers threatened by the Governor’s rising political profile. We are amused that political detractors will stop at nothing to see how they can distract Governor Wike’s visionary leadership.

“For the umpteenth time, we restate that he is presently preoccupied with his mission to make Rivers State a better place and destination of choice.

“All the puerile antics of political jobbers aimed at heating up the polity will surely fail. The public is advised to discountenance the misinformation that is currently circulating in Abuja.”
