Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has alleged that members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the North ganged up to oust ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.

He said the gang up paved the way for President Muhammadu Buhari to win the 2015 presidential election.

Jonathan, as incumbent president, lost to Buhari, the first time such happened in Nigeria’s history.

Wike alleged that members of Jonathan’s cabinet while he was in power, and ranking members of PDP - from the party’s former Chairman, Adamu Mu’azu, deceived the former president and told him outright lies about his chances.

Wike stated this in the current edition of The Interview.

Wike said, “Let me tell you the truth; so many people were not sincere with Jonathan. You saw that even in the way some were being unduly sycophantic on issues that were totally out of point…I saw there was a lot of deceit.”

”PDP in the north ganged up against Jonathan. Let the truth be told! Nobody will die! They were not sincere to him,” the governor said.

”Some of them would say, ‘Your Excellency, Sir, as I’m speaking with you now, so and so state is down for PDP’. It was all lies.”
