Atiku’s Aide Speaks On Gov Wike Shunning His Delegate In Turkey


Reactions As PDP Panel Recommends Wike As Atiku’s Running Mate

Paul Ibe, the media aide to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar has debunked the report that his principal sent an emissary to meet Governor Nyesom Wike in Turkey.

There had been reports that the Rivers State Governor shunned the emissary, a former Minister of Police Affairs, Adamu Waziri sent by Atiku.

A further report had it that Waziri met with Wike in Turkey to plead with him to support the presidential ambition of Atiku, which he reportedly ignored.

Wike has remained silent on the running of the party after being snubbed by Atiku who picked the Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate.

Ibe is reaction assured that issues with Wike and other aggrieved leaders will be amicably resolved.

Atiku’s media aide in a post on Twitter wrote, “The report that H.E @atiku sent an emissary who was shunned by Gov Wike is at best hogwash. The @OfficialPDPNig presidential candidate did not send an emissary to Turkey.

”Those trying to create a wedge between the leaders do not mean well for the PDP and Nigeria. I wish to assure them that all extant issues with the Rivers State Governor and other aggrieved leaders will be amicably resolved so that the party can focus on booting out the ruinous APC administration and commence the arduous task of reconstructing our nation.”
