Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has accused some elders of the state of ganging up against him because they did not scale through the primary to be the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.

The governor explained that some of them, who indicated interest to fly the party’s flag but failed, went to mobilize in Abuja to ensure that he did not emerge as the running mate of the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar.

Wike spoke during the 74th birthday reception organized to honor a former governor of the state, Dr. Peter Odili, at his residence the in Old Government Residential Area, Port Harcourt.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Mr. Kelvin Ebiri, and made available to journalists in Port Harcourt.
