2023: I won’t support Jonathan’s presidential ambition under APC – Wike

Wike-Jonathan

The Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, has made it clear he will not support Goodluck Jonathan, if he runs for presidency with an All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket.

Speaking to BBC Pidgin, Wike said he will only support the former president, if he gets the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential ticket for the 2023 election.

Wike said: “I am a PDP member, if former President Goodluck Jonathan picks a ticket to run in my party, I will support him. I can’t do anti-party. But if he picks a ticket to run in APC, I won’t support him because I can’t do anti-party.

“He knows I won’t support him in APC even if he is from the south. I don’t do that kind of politics. It is party we are talking about and I don’t play ethnicity.”

Jonathan has remained coy over his intentions to contest for president in 2023.
