PDP Primaries: You Will Be Shocked – Wike Fires Atiku



Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has lambasted former Vice President Atiku Abubakar for expressing confidence of winning the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential ticket.
The Rivers State governor was reacting to Atiku's comment after a meeting with ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo and the Alake of Egbaland in Ogun State on Saturday.

Atiku had told newsmen that he would declare his intention to run for the 2023 presidential election after meeting with those that mattered in the political scene.

“Have I ever failed to get the ticket? I’m confident,” he said.

In a statement on Sunday by his media aide, Kelvin Ebiri, Wike said the outcome of the PDP presidential primary will be surprising.

According to the governor, the former vice-president went too far with his comment.

He also warned politicians and party members to resist making divisive utterances as the PDP pushes to reclaim power in 2023.

Wike said: "I didn’t expect him frankly speaking to say that he will always take the ticket of the party. That is going too far and taking the delegates for granted.

“People should watch. There will be shock as far as PDP convention is concerned. People should watch what is going to happen. People like to underrate so many persons and it is not good in politics.”
