Atiku Issues A Crisis Message To Wike
The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate for the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar, has received a warning from Senator Dino Melaye, the party’s spokesperson and director of public affairs. Nyesom Wike is the governor of Rivers State.
According to NIGERIAPENNG, Wike requested that Atiku keep him out of the PDP’s related problems on Monday.
However, Governor Wike asserted that a subpar product is always challenging to sell; otherwise, having collaborated with him, former president Olusegun Obasanjo would have recommended Atiku to Nigerians.
But, instead of doing so, Governor Wike noted, that the former president chose to endorse another presidential candidate, Peter Obi (Labour Party).
Governor Wike insisted that if former president Obasanjo had refused to recommend Alhaji Atiku, then something must be fundamentally wrong.
Reacting, Melaye said in a statement: “Atiku’s only crime is that he won a transparent presidential primary.
“Wike was chief of staff to Rotimi Amaechi but Amaechi did not trust him enough to hand over to him.
“I advise him to support whoever he wishes to support as we will no longer tolerate his insolent tendencies.
“The question is, is there something wrong with Wike that Amaechi did not hand over to him? Why will Prince Uche Secondus, Rt Hon. Austin Okpara, Sen. Lee Meaba, H:E Celestine Omehia, Chief Abiye Sikibo, Sen George Sekibo, Hon. Chinyere Igwe, etc, leave him unceremoniously for Atiku. Something is definitely wrong somewhere.”
