Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike says those speculating about his preferred presidential candidate in the forthcoming elections are wasting their time because that will not influence his decision.
Wike made this clear during the flag-off of construction of Akpabu-Egbeda-Elele/Omoku Link Road in the state on Wednesday, noting again that his preferred presidential candidate will be made known in due course.
He said, “Don’t make mistakes. All your votes, put it in one basket. Put it in one basket. Carry all, give us for governorship, give us for House of Reps.
“Vote for us for Senate. Vote for us for House of Assembly. But president, we will tell you how you will do it.
“If anybody likes, say whatever you want to say. Say I’m working for so-and-so person, it’s your business. Say I’m not working for so-and-so person, it’s your business. That will not deter me or make me change my mind where we’re heading to.
“So, if they like, they make speculations. After all, that’s why the word ‘speculation’ is there. People must speculate, so let them continue to speculate. And let them know, some of them who do not even have 25 votes are busy abusing leaders. When you finish abusing leaders, you will pay.
“We are here talking to our people; they are there in radio stations and television houses. We are here talking to our people. When we finish, by that time, you select. Anytime they come, ask them, ‘What did you bring for us?”
