Nyesom Wike, Governor of Rivers State and a presidential aspirant of the largest opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) got tongues wagging after disclosing he was on holiday in Turkey.

Wike, who was one of the major talking points following the conclusion of the PDP primaries in May was spotted alongside political allies and Governor of Abia State, Okezie Victor Ikpeazu.

"Finally enjoying a much-needed vacation in Turkey with my brother H.E Okezie Ikpeazu," he wrote on his official Instagram page.

His post led to comments by followers of the PDP stalwart.

Wike has not officially confirmed if he will support the ticket of flagbearer Atiku Abubakar and running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa.

He was spotted recently with opposition candidates including Peter Obi of the Labour Party and Rabiu Kwakwanso of the New Nigeria People’s Party.
