Time to tell Nigerians truth – Wike on PDP over Atiku, Okowa
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has downplayed the possibility of dumping the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, due to the fallout of the party’s presidential primaries.
Wike said he would soon tell Nigerians the truth about the situation of PDP.
He spoke to journalists on Friday at the Port Harcourt International Airport in the Rivers State capital, shortly after he returned from a foreign trip.
“I have decided to be quiet because PDP is a party I love so much.
“I have moved on to conclude my social contract with the people of Rivers. However, it is time to let Nigerians know the truth.
“I am not a slave and will not be a slave. I am freeborn of the country,” he said.
Wike is aggrieved with the PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, over his choice of Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate.
Atiku was believed to have ignored the recommendations of a committee he set up to select his running mate.
The committee led by Governor Samuel Ortom had picked Wike, who came second during the presidential primaries, to be Atiku’s running mate.
