According to the statement released during his appeal to the general public not to believe the report, claiming that the South had not yet made a statement on the zoning of the PDP presidential ticket.
The Governor emphasized that the South cannot be viewed as a liability, alleging that when the South takes a position, the entire world will be aware of it.

The statement was released at the Government House in Port Harcourt during an interactive session with some stakeholders in the state.
His statement reads, ” Please discountenance all those things you are hearing. The south will make a statement very soon.
” The day the south makes a statement Nigerian will know that we’ re not joking.
” What is necessary is to make sure that the party gets it right.
” We are assets, we are not liabilities. If we say we are going to support the party we will do it with everything we have.
” We are not in America where they do television campaigns no it’ s not done here.
” When we come out we will choke them.
” So everybody should relax let the south do their proper homework and they will make a statement that will be beneficial to Nigerians and the PDP” .
High Chief Raymon Dokpesi, the former Chairman of DAAR Communications, was also slammed by Governor wike for telling Nigerians to reject zoning and claiming that the former Vice President would hand over power to the South- East after one term in office.
” At the level of Dopkesi, he said he is a high chief; going to television to tell people that there is no to zoning. I can’ t believe this. Even if somebody is to say it. Is he the one to say it?
” And he has arrogated the power of the party to himself saying when Atiku wins, he will hand over to the South East. Is that not the decision of the party? So the party cannot decide at all, Dokpesi has zoned it” .
