Wike speaks on endorsing candidates for Rivers LG elections

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has denied endorsing candidates for the forthcoming local government elections.

Wike debunked the allegations on Sunday, when he received Opobo Nkoro people at the Government House in Port Harcourt.

“If anybody tells you that I am interested in any person, tell the person it is a lie.

“I have found out that one of the problems about local administration is that when you do not allow the people to be involved, then there is always a disconnect.

“So anybody that said they say, today I am saying it. Don’t listen to them again. I want a free and fair election,” he said.

Wike also expressed optimism that the local council polls in June would be conducted in a free and transparent manner.
