He recently revealed this via a media statement in Port Harcourt on Friday by the Special Assistant to the governor on Media, Kelvin Ebiri.
According to him, despite his political affiliations, he can’t stoop so low to disrespect Tinubu or the former National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, so Nigerians should ignore the rumours.
He added that both politicians have a hard-earned reputation in Nigerian politics, and he’ll always respect their legacy.
His words, “At no time during the interview session that lasted about five minutes did Governor Wike mention the names of Chief Tinubu and the APC’s former national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, or even alluded to them.”
“We, therefore consider the report as preposterous, fabricated, malicious and intended to inflame relationship between Governor Wike and Chief Tinubu, whom the Rivers Chief Executive holds in high esteem.”
“We wish to state without equivocation, that irrespective of political affiliation, Governor Wike has enormous respect for Chief Tinubu and will never say or do anything to malign the hard-earned reputation of the elder statesman.”
