Former Governor of Rivers State and current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has assured that he will not contest against President Bola Tinubu in the 2027 presidential election.
Wike made the assurance during a media talk and debunked claims suggesting that he would contest against Tinubu in the 2023 presidential election, saying he has character.
“They are carrying all kinds of information, and they are saying, oh, Wike will take on Tinubu, how? some people have no character at all. So look at me after being FCT minister, I will collect forms under which party if it is APC, I will collect the form of APC and see who I want to contest against; I mean, people not only have character, or I went to PDP, they shaped me, I want to fight against Tinubu, these are callous political tyrants who have no character, I have character,” Wike said.
His comment comes amid rumors that the former governor of Rivers State would opt for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2027 presidential election.
Wike, however, claimed that having served as FCT minister under President Tinubu, he had no intention of contesting against him in the presidential election.
