The statement said, the elements behind the viral video have intention to mislead the members of the public.

The statement said the video was a former interview which the governor granted when he was reacting to the defection of the Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, from the PDP to the APC, adding that he will never defect from PDP to the APC for any reason.

Wike said, PDP was a platform that gave him whatever he wanted in life, and could not have contemplated leaving the party.

“We urge the public to ignore the distorted video. Those behind it are desperately wicked and intend to mislead the public. Governor Wike remains a faithful, committed member of the PDP and will never leave it for the cancerous APC,” the statement read in part.
