Atiku And Ayu Left Yet We Survived – PDP Blasts Wike


2023: No Reconciliation In Sight Between Me, Wike, Aggrieved PDP Governors - Atiku

A spokesperson for the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign, David Bwala has said that Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike cannot continue to hold the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) back.

Naija News reports that the crisis in the PDP has heightened over the past few weeks as Wike and his allies kept on insisting that party’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu resign.

Things took a turn for the worse when on Friday, Wike, during a media chat, claimed that Ayu received N1 billion from one of the presidential hopefuls in the party.

Reacting to Wike’s comments, Bwala berated the governor over his allegations adding that he can’t take the place of God.


He noted that Wike does not abide by the principles of fairness and equity that he’s always quick to trumpet.

He said, “You know the scripture says God gives power to whosoever he will. It is good to be rich and to be helpful, but the one thing that God doesn’t share is when you begin to take His place.

“How do you take the place of God? When nothing moves except you are in it, except you direct it? I will give you an example. He talks about equity, fairness and justice that has become the cliché and the hallmark of his campaign.


“In his state, the chairman of the party and the governorship candidate are from the same senatorial district. In his state, the very individual that decided to pick a form to run for senate when he had not given the approval, what happened to the person? He was held in custody.”

Speaking further Bwala stated that the party has often made decisions to favor Wike, adding that it is not a fair game if the governor keeps playing God.

He went on to state that if Wike leaves the PDP it would survive as others have left and it still survived.


From the look of things, it is just Wike. The flag bearer has never said anything and has said nobody should insult him. Ayu and Atiku are founding members of the party. Even though they left, they still had to come back,”

“Let me tell you why you cannot play God. Atiku left the party, it survived; Ayu left the party, it survived; if Wike leaves, the party will survive,” he added.
