“It started like a rumour; but former President Jonathan came out openly today (Sunday) and told the governor that he would not support him. And as I speak with you, he is calling leaders of the PDP in the state not to support the governor in the primary that will take place on Monday,’’ an unnamed aide of the governor told ThisDay.

“Politicians have no conscience. What has Governor Wada done to deserve all these from Jonathan? Anyway, God is with us; let’s wait and see what will happen on Monday,” the aide added.

Jonathan is said to be against Wada due to a suspicion that the latter supported President Muhammadu Buhari during the March presidential elections.
