There are strong indications that the rifts generated by the conduct of the Presidential Primary of the Peoples Democratic Party are yet to be over.
To this end, a strong contender to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Presidency in the primary election conducted a couple of months ago, Nyeson Wike has said that he will soon expose the roles played by the party and the Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar in the primary.
Wike, who is currently the Governor of Rivers State, serving his second term of eight years, in a statement on July 23, emphasized that he will not leave anything out regarding the happenings in the PDP before, during and after the primary election in which he came second after Atiku.
In the statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri, the Governor said that it has become pertinent for him to speak and reveal to Nigerians all that transpired in the PDP since the emergence of Atiku as its the presidential candidate.
“On Atiku, I will speak soon and Nigerians will know the actual truth of all that has transpired in the PDP in recent times.”
Apart from being denied the position of running mate to Atiku by the candidate himself, after a panel had recommended him as favourite amongst the three of them, Atiku had, in a television interview on July 22, 2022 inferred that Wike did not match the kind of person he would have picked as running mate.
Atiku explained that while looking for a running mate, he had in mind a person who could as well be the President if he is not around, saying it is the Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa that matched his ideal running mate.
Wike came second in the PDP Presidential primary.
