How Wike frustrated the S East presidency – Atiku spokesperson

Spokesperson Atiku campaign council Daniel Bwala accused Rivers State Governor of kicking PDP ticket micro-zoning for south east, a move according to Bwala would most likely have saw former Anambra State Governor, Mr. Peter Obi emerge from the PDP presidential candidate.

“Peter Obi moved to the Labor Party and the ‘Obidient’ movement was formed as a result of Wike’s actions because Obi was frustrated from the party in Anambra State by Chris Uba due to Wike’s position. The whole range of zoning was brought by Wike because he was the one who brought Ayu and I remember when discussing that power should be zoned and Atiku said if power should be zoned, it should be zoned southeast or northeast because those are the two areas that didn’t benefit from it.

“Then Atiku said if he was ever zoned southeast he wasn’t going to show up because the move was when he should be micro zoned southeast. But Wike frustrated the south zoning -is because he was interested He influenced the emergence of those who sat on the zoning committee and at his request a recommendation was made that the ticket be opened, obviously because he is not from the South -Est. Otherwise, Obi or Pius Anyim would have become the PDP candidates,” Bwala said.

Meanwhile, a member of the PDP’s presidential campaign council, who pleaded not to be named, called Wike’s comments in his TV interview unfair.

The party leader said now was not the time for anyone to settle non-existent scores, saying everyone had to be on deck to save the country from the administration led by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to him, in his entire political life, there is no evidence so far that Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president, has in his actions or statements portrayed himself as an unworthy and unreliable political leader.

“He distances himself from unsavory actions and embraces the lofty values ​​that could propel our country to decency and greatness. This is what is responsible for his political activities: having the opportunity to contribute to the greatness of the nation and to help advance the potentials of the country and its young and abundant population. The Wazirin Adamawa remains a man of deep conviction, honesty and integrity.

“Governor Wike says he fights for fairness, justice and fairness. But in pursuit of it all, the governor assumes the state and all of the south of the country. In all sincerity and as a loyal supporter of the party he claims to be, he should stop waging a war that does not exist. It is also important to dispel any impressions that may have been created during the interview that key political positions were shared. Yes, politics is about negotiations and more negotiations to reach a consensus and, sometimes, even a compromise, it is a futile exercise to share positions when an electoral victory is not acquired. We call on Governor Wike to say that Nigeria desperately needs visionary leaders to save and redeem the nation from this devastating administration. Now is not the time to pull punches and settle scores, especially when they do not exist, but the time to combine strength and effort to lift our people out of nearly eight years of sustained pain and discouragement. . It is our prayer that God save the country through the DPP.

However, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman Iyorchia Ayu has remained silent on Governor Wike’s accusation that he raised 1 billion naira from an unnamed source in Lagos ahead of the primary. opposition party presidential election in May.

When Saturday Sun contacted Simon Imobo-Tswam, Special Advisor, Media and Communications to the PDP National Chairman, for his reaction, he said, “I have no comment.”
