Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike has reiterated that he will never join the All Progressives Congress (APC), despite its governors’ commendable stance on zoning the presidency to the South.

Bellnewsonline.com reports that Wike, who described the insinuations that he will defect to the APC as speculative, maintained that he remains an unrepentant member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Governor Wike stated these at the 114th quarterly general meeting of the Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers in Port Harcourt, the State capital on Monday.

He informed the council ahead of Saturday’s presidential election, that he will be voting for only the candidate that can guarantee the unity of the country.

Wike said: “I am not a member of APC and I will not be. But, they have made me to recognise that they are the heroes of this country.

“The governors came out to say look, for the unity of this country, presidency should go to the south. The governors of APC said the way the county is, they want the unity of this country and therefore, the presidency should go to the South.

“They could have as well said no, it doesn’t matter. As governors we have the number. We can still say it should remain where it should remain. But they didn’t do that. They said the way we are seeing this country we want everybody to be together.

“Let no one say because I have the population, therefore, you will continue to dominate. In dominating you need peace, without peace you cannot govern.”
