PRIMARY ELECTION: Nyesom Wike Refutes Claims Atiku Reached Out To Him

Nyesom Wike, the Rivers State Governor and former presidential aspirant under PDP, has denied claims that Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, has reached out to him since the end of the party’s primary election that took place in May, 2022.

While speaking on Friday at the Port Harcourt International Airport, Rivers state, shortly after the governor returned from a foreign trip.

Wike disclosed, “After 31st of May, not one person has come to talk to me. It is most unfortunate when people tell lies. Some senators called me that Atiku Abubakar sent Saraki to me.

“That is not correct. I was in Spain. Bukola came to me and said, ‘My brother, how do we settle this problem?’ I asked ‘Did Atiku send you?’ He said no. I said, ‘Look at the issues.’ And he said that the matter is serious.

“He didn’t know of the issues. Atiku has never…Forget about sending rent-seekers and scavengers around him. Some of them would even call my friends and say, “Ol boy, tell your guy nau, make e support us’. It has been reduced to that level. I have become ‘guy’. I have never seen where serious minded people would reduce issues like this to this level.”

Atiku and Wike contested in the last presidential primary election under the platform of PDP, which Atiku eventually won and Wike kicked to the second position. Since then, Atiku claimed to have reached out to Wike to resolve their differences.
