Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has disclosed the reason he will not support former President, Goodluck Jonathan, if decides to defect to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Wike said that he will not support Jonathan if decides to run for office in 2023 under the APC because he can not engage in anti-party.

He made this known in an interview with BBC Pidgin.
 Wike noted that if Jonathan picks a ticket to run in the PDP, he will support him.

Wike said even Jonathan knew that he would work against him if he joined the APC and clinched the party’s ticket to run for the Presidency in 2023.

He said: “I am a PDP member, if former President, Goodluck Jonathan picks a ticket to run in my party, I will support him. I can’t do anti-party. But if he picks a ticket to run in APC, I won’t support him because I can’t do anti-party.

“He knows I won’t support him in APC even if he is from the South. I don’t do that kind of politics. It is party we are talking about and I don’t play ethnicity.”
