Dismissing recent claims that he is planning to run for election as the running mate of Presidential Candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, come 2019, Wike in a statement released by his special Assistant on Electronic Media, Simeon Nwakaudu said: “We urge Nigerians to disregard the posters, as they have no link with the Rivers State Governor. Nobody runs for the office of the Vice President.
