The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has reacted to the claim that the state Governor, Nyesom Wike has plans to ban the presidential campaign of the party’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar in the state.
The party noted that Governor Wike would have announced it publicly if he had the intention of halting Atiku’s campaign in the state.
PDP State Publicity Secretary, Tambari Gbara in a statement released on Wednesday called on the former Rivers Southeast Senator, Ledogo Maeba to provide evidence that Wike said so.
Gbara stated this while reacting to Maeba’s claim that Governor Wike was not pleased with their visit to Atiku in Abuja, and had warned them not to campaign for Atiku without his permission.
The statement released by the party reads, “If the governor wants to make that statement, he would make it official, that, in the State, nobody should campaign for Atiku Abubakar.
“Governor Wike is not somebody that hides his feelings. If he wants to say that, I don’t think he would say it privately. So, the person making the allegation should come out and prove himself.
“He (Maeba) should be able to furnish Rivers people and Nigerians with evidence.”
