Over failing to make real his threat of publicly declaring his choice of candidate for the 2023 presidential election and campaigning nationwide for such a candidate,Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has been tagged a coward.
Wike had late last year told the people of Rivers that he would by January make public his choice of presidential candidate, pledging to move from State to State campaigning for the candidate.
But January has passed and the Governor has yet to make his choice public.
It was gathered that recently,some of his aides came on social media, sharing the photo of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu with the caption ‘Is about time.’
However, in a recent interview, Wike noted that he never told the public the method by which he would make his preferred presidential candidate known.
Wike is one of the five aggrieved PDP governors known as the Integrity Group or G5, who have remained defiant in their opposition to the North producing both the party national chairman and the presidential candidate.
The group, on the grounds that there must be equity, fairness, and justice, has refused to campaign for Atiku in their various States.
Wike was challenged by the Former Director-General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, Dakuku Peterside on tuesday to name his candidate.
Responding to the challenge, Wike fired back at the APC chieftain, saying he did not promise to make his declaration in front of the camera, adding that he did not give a specific date in January when he will make his declaration.
Amidst Nigerians in wait of the decision of Governor Wike and his colleagues, a chieftain of the APC, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze has described the Governor as a coward and a confused man.
