Rivers State Government says Governor Wike at no time denigrated his Imo State counterpart, Hope Uzodinma on the forth coming election in Edo State.
Commissioner of Information and Communication, Paulinus Nsirim said a viral statement,titled,’Wike’s reply to Uzodinma” was concocted..
Nsirim said” The attention of the Rivers State Government has been drawn to the news circulating in the Social Media that Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, denigrated his Imo State counterpart,Governor Hope Uzodinma.
” The purveyors of the deliberate falsehood alleged that Governor Wike replied Governor Uzodinma over a recent statement where he allegedly boasted that the All Progressives Congress APC will teach the Peoples Democratic party PDP and Governor Wike how to conduct a transparent election in the forth coming Edo State gubernatorial election
“The concocted story only existed in the imagination of the authors and so there was also no disparaging comment by Wike.
“Members of the public are hereby advised to discountenance all the information contained in the said publication as they did not emanate from Governor Wike”.,
