Wike who made this revelation during a live interview on Arise Television, noted that he would only support Amaechi it he runs for presidency on the platform of his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
However, he said that if Amaechi was to run under the All Progressives Congress (APC), it would amount to anti-party activity for him (Wike) to support him.
“If he (Amaechi) is running under the PDP, why not? But if he is running under APC, why should I support him? I am not a member of the APC. I don’t play politics of where you come from; I don’t do that. I am a true and true Nigerian.
“If Amaechi is running for the presidency today under the PDP and he wins the ticket of the party, why not? But if he is running on the ticket of APC and I am not in APC, that will mean I am doing anti-party. That is the problem in the country; I cannot do anti-party at this level. I cannot do that,” Wike said.
During the interview, Governor Wike also said that his prayer remained for the ruling APC to always be in crisis so that his party (PDP) will grow.
