Edo 2020 guber: Gov. Wike disowns alleged reply to Uzodinma, says it was concocted



Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, on Friday night disowned his alleged reply to his Imo State counterpart, Hope Uzodinma, alleging that it was concocted.

According to a statement issued by the Honourable Commissioner for Information and Communications, Paulinus Nsirim, it states, Our attention has been drawn to the news circulating in the Social Media that Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State denigrated his Imo State counterpart, Governor Hope Uzodinma.

The purveyors of the deliberate falsehood alleged that Governor Wike replied Governor Uzodinma over a recent statement where he allegedly boasted that “the All Progressives Congress (APC) will teach the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Governor Wike how to conduct a transparent election in the forthcoming Edo State gubernatorial election.”

The concocted story only existed in the imagination of the authors and so there was also no disparaging comment by Governor Wike.

Members of the public are hereby advised to discountenance all the information contained in the said publication as they did not emanate from Governor Wike.
