A former Minister of Police Affairs, Adamu Waziri, has disagreed with the decision of the Peoples Democratic Party to plead with Governor Nyesom Wike over the choice of Ifeanyi Okowa as the vice-presidential candidate of the party.

The member of the PDP BoT said Wike is desperate and needs time to be comforted over what happened.

Wike had gone silent since the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar announced the Delta State Governor as his running mate.

Waziri spoke against the party sending delegates to kneel for the Rivers State Governor.

This is coming after the Chairman of the PDP BoT, Walid Jibrin said the party would send a delegation which will include Atiku, Okowa, and others to reconcile with Wike.

Waziri while reacting to the BoT move said, “Wike is desperate and he needs time to be comforted over what happened. I agree with the reconciliation but where we part ways is the issue of sending that mighty delegation to kneel for him.

“Whatever decisions the party made, all obedient members should abide, we must keep aside whatever happened during primary elections and move on, the party is bigger than the interest of all of us.

“Wike said he would not be running mate to anybody therefore we must find someone who will work smoothly with our presidential candidate.”

According to Waziri, the former vice president did not send him to speak with Wike in Turkey.

Waziri said, “Atiku didn’t send me anywhere but of course, I was in Istanbul Turkey for my leave last Friday and we coincidentally met in a hotel, that’s just it.”
