Our consideration has been drawn to a manipulated video circulating on Social Media, purporting that the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike intends to defect from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
It will probably be recalled that in June 2021, Governor Wike was interviewed on Arise Television, following the defection of Ebonyi State governor, Dave Umahi from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
During the interview, Governor Wike whereas reacting to purpose given by Ebonyi State governor for his defection, dismissed it as untenable.
The excerpt of the interview in circulation has been intentionally manipulated by some determined and unscrupulous individuals with obnoxious agenda.
The intent of the video being circulated is to mislead the unsuspecting public, notably members of the PDP.
We, hereby urge the general public to ignore the manipulated video.
Governor Wike has repeatedly maintained that he won’t ever beneath any circumstances defect from the PDP, which has provided him the platform to excel in his political profession.
“We urge the public to ignore the distorted video. Those behind it are desperately wicked and intend to mislead the public. Governor Wike remains a faithful, committed member of the PDP and will never leave it for cancerous APC.”
