Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said he did not support the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Mr Peter Obi overtly at the Feb. 25 election because nobody discussed Igbo presidency with him.
According to NAN, Publicity Secretary of Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide, Dr Alex Ogbonnia, stated on Friday in Enugu that Wike made the declaration at a meeting the socio-political group had with him in Port Harcourt on Thursday.
Ogbonnia stated that at the meeting, Ohaneze Ndigbo confronted Wike over his alleged role against Obi during the presidential election.
He stated that Gov. Wike expressed surprise that Ohanaeze was on a fact-finding mission and would explain his role in the presidential election.
Wike expressed disgust that during the PDP presidential primary election, several well-known people of the Southeast betrayed him and sabotaged the Southern interest by voting for a candidate from the northern part.

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has slammed a former minister, Rotimi Amaechi for saying he loves the Igbo people.
Amaechi, while moving around the Diobu area of Port Harcourt, campaigning for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, during the week, said that Igbo blood runs through his veins.
Amaechi said that while he was the Governor of the State, his administration favoured the Igbo, who he also claimed to be part of, berating the current administration of Wike for not being fair enough with Igbos.
