Governor Nyesome Wike of Rivers state says he has no intention to run with anyone as vice presidential candidate in 2019.
In a statement by his special assistant, Simeon Nwakaudu, the governor described the campaign posters posted at locations in Abuja as the handiwork of political mischief makers.
“We urge Nigerians to disregard these posters as they have no link with the Rivers state governor,” Nwakaudu said. “Nobody runs for the office of vice president.
“The Rivers state governor has the mandate of the good people of Rivers state and he is focused on delivering quality projects and programmes for the people.
“Governor Wike will not be distracted by the antics of misguided politicians who want to mislead Nigerians,” he noted.
Meanwhile, Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term in office.
