2023: He Is On Wike’s Side – Group Warns Atiku About PDP Governor
A political group under the aegis of North East Solidarity Network (NESN) has warned the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, to thread carefully with those who claim to be supporting his presidential ambition.
They audaciously mentioned that Governor of Bauchi, Bala Mohammed cannot be trusted, hence Atiku should reconsider their relationship as the former is pallying with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.
Naija News understands that the group made the admonition to Atiku in a statement released on Monday through its president, Abubakar Abubakar.
The statement delivered to newsmen in Abuja pointed out that certain elements who disguise as supporters of the PDP are plotting a last minute betrayal for the party’s presidential candidate.
The group advised Atiku to watch carefully those who lost presidential ticket to him during the party’s National Convention months ago.
NESN recalled that Governor Mohammed contested the PDP Primary election with Atiku in May but lost in a landslide.
According to them, the governor’s commitment to Atiku’s presidency should be properly interrogated.
The group further expressed concern that the party was not getting the needed loyalty from some of those who contested for the presidential tickets and lost to Atiku, a development they asserted should be watched out for as the party approaches the 2023 general election.
Describing the Bauchi State Governor as a hypocrite, Abubakar said Mohammed is two-faced, a side for Atiku and the other for Wike.
“As well-meaning stakeholders interested in the progress of our beloved party and nation, we wish to bring the attention of Alhaji Atiku to some conspirators working against his ambition,” Abubakar noted in the statement.
He added: “No doubt, our party is undergoing a phase – a man-made crisis born out of utter jealousy, pride and selfish interest. We have followed the scheme of things and noticed that some so-called leaders don’t mean well for the party.
“Atiku is a man destined to rule this nation. He is on the right path to achieving this. However, he must be careful with the kind of people he surrounds himself with.”
Naija News reports that a series of meetings have been held to reconcile Atiku and Wike following their fallout after the party’s convention in May.
