PDP Presidential Primary Was Rigged – Governor Wike



Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has again faulted the conduct of the presidential primary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) claiming that the process was not a fair contest.

Gov.  Wike noted that he does not regret running for the presidential post and assured that if the process had been fair and straightforward, he would have won the election.

He  made this submission during the reception of political associates and Rivers elders, led by the chairman, Rivers Elders Council, Chief Ferdinand Alabraba, who visited him in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, to celebrate with him on his 55th birthday.

He added that those who feel it is easy to run for the office can go ahead and give it a try.

He said “I don’t regret I ran for presidency. In the name of God, I am happy to make Rivers State proud. I am happy, as far I am concerned. If they had allowed it to be what it is supposed to be, I would have won the election. But it’s okay. It has happened.

“People said because I lost election, it doesn’t matter. I didn’t lose election. This is my first time of trying to run for the president of Nigeria and we made impact. If it is easy, let them go ahead. Are they not the ones begging”. Wike said.
