The Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, Monday has accused the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, of sidelining him by picking the state’s PDP presidential campaign nominees without his consent.
Wike revealed this while inaugurating the PDP campaign council and the launching of the party’s governorship campaign office in Port Harcourt.
He noted that Atiku selected enemies of Rivers into his campaign council for the 2023 general elections.
He said, “Some people have asked me why haven’t they seen the presidential candidate’s picture and the party chairman’s. I said what are you talking about? The presidential candidate entered my state and picked members of the presidential council without a whole governor of a state having a contribution.”
