The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has revealed that he will soon spill the beans about all that has transpired in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) very soon.
Wike stated this in a terse tweet on Saturday evening.
He wrote: “I will speak soon and Nigerians will know the truth of all that has transpired in the PDP in recent times.”
Recall that on Friday, Atiku Abubakar the PDP presidential candidate for the 2023 election, spoke about why he didn’t choose Wike as his running mate.
Reacting to the controversy surrounding the choice of his running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa, Atiku said on Arise TV that he only picked who he felt could deliver among the nominees that were presented to him.
Atiku said, “I didn’t reject Wike, I picked who can deliver.”
Atiku said this while reacting to the controversy surrounding the choice of his running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa, and why he did not pick Wike.
Speaking in an interview with Arise TV on Friday morning, Atiku said he only picked who he felt could deliver among the nominees that were presented to him.
He said, “I didn’t reject Wike, I picked who can deliver. Wike is brilliant and tenacious.
“Going by history, I picked an Igbo as running mate in 2007, in 2019. I still picked an Igbo as running mate for 2023.
“The committee that presented the three nominees was chaired by the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom. They recommended three people, so I picked one. People should be fair to me and state the facts.”
On the possibility of resolving issues with Wike, Atiku said the party was talking to the governor.
