Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said that the people of the state will not campaign for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.
According to him, there is no agreement to have such, and that if Atiku or any candidate belittle the significance of the votes of the Rivers people, they do that at their own peril.
Wike said this on Tuesday in Bonny Town during the Local Government Campaign inauguration organised by the Rivers State PDP Campaign Council.
Addressing Bonny people, Wike said: “Go home and have it on your mind that the PDP in Rivers State, we have taken governorship, we have taken the senatorial, we have taken the House of Representatives and we have taken the House of Assembly.
“That is the election we are doing here. These are the ones(candidates) who told me to come and campaign for them. No other person told me to campaign for him.
“I can’t force myself to campaign for you when you have not asked for it. These ones (candidates) have told me, so, I’ve come here to campaign. If somebody asks you to work for him, you’ll work for him. But if they don’t want you to work for them, will you force them?”
