Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared on Wednesday that he will not be vying for the position of Vice President of the country as being speculated in certain quarters ahead of the 2019 elections.
He went on to say that he is not interested in becoming the vice-president of the country.
Wike further reiterated this position during an interview with The Osasu Show at government house, Port Harcourt on Thursday.
He was asked to reply to reports that he is plotting to emerge running mate to whoever emerges presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
But he debunked the reports, saying though some PDP presidential aspirants seeking his support offered him the position, he remains committed to the interest of the state.
“There are aspirants who have promised me the position of the vice-president, but I said I will not seek the position; not even in the dream will I seek that position at this point,” he said.
“I am a first-term governor and the national chairman of PDP is from my state and the south-south… these are mere allegations. People can carry rumours, but everything I will do, will be in the interest of Rivers state.
