Running Mate: Your Interview Is Full Of Lie’s – Wike Blast’s Atiku; Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has responded to the developments following the People’s Democratic Party presidential primary poll
Shortly after arriving home from a trip abroad, he gave a speech on Friday at the Port Harcourt International Airport in the state capital of Rivers.
At a press conference, the governor added, I have chosen to keep quiet because I love the PDP so much.
My social agreement with the people of Rivers is now complete. But now is the moment to tell Nigerians the truth.
On the same day that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa was introduced as Atiku Abubakar’s running mate, Governor Wike criticized the PDP presidential candidate’s address.
Additionally, he charged that the former vice president had propagated false information on him by employing certain top leaders of the main opposition party.
In due course, the governor promised to respond to both the party’s flagbearer and the party chieftains, whom he referred to as Atiku’s “attack dogs.”
He vowed to clear the air following the commissioning of the projects the state administration had planned for inauguration and warned that history would not forgive him if he failed to do so.
In reference to the PDP leadership’s creation of a reconciliation committee, Governor Wike said that former Vice President Atiku had not yet sent any delegations to him.
However, he claimed that Bukola Saraki, the former president of the Senate, had a personal meeting with him in Spain.
The governor claims that the former vice president visited him at home to ask for help but has since forgotten how to get there.
The PDP candidate’s representative was dispatched to speak to him about the problem in the PDP and the fallout from the party’s presidential primary, he continued, and he challenged anyone to prove it.
Governor Wike claimed that he would stay in the PDP and work to rebuild the party while claiming that the concept of creating a committee was only being discussed in the media.
Because I am not a slave and never will be. I am a freeborn Nigeria citizen, Wike added
Atiku received 371 votes in the PDP’s presidential primary, which was held in May, defeating Wike, who received 237 votes and finished in second place.
Bukola Saraki (70), a former president of the senate, Udom Emmanuel (38), the governor of Akwa Ibom State, and Bala Mohammed, the governor of Bauchi State (38),
The remaining valid votes were split among Mr. Sam Ohuabunwa (1), Mrs. Tari Diana Oliver (1), and former Senate President Pius Anyim (14).
The PDP presidential candidate selected Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate for the upcoming election weeks after the primaries was conducted.
But this caused a rift among party officials, with some supporting and others opposing the selection of Okowa.
Claiming that Wike, the primary’s runner-up, should have been chosen by Atiku instead of his Delta rival.
