PDP Crisis: Atiku Reacts, Blasts Wike for Deceiving G5 Govs



  • The crisis in the nation’s main opposition party seems not to be ending soon, even after Atiku Abubakar’s loss to APC’s Bola Tinubu
  • While Nyesom Wike maintains that Atiku recorded a significant defeat due to his refusal to adhere to the warnings of the G5 governors, the former VP’s aide feels otherwise
  • Atiku’s aide, Phrank Shaibu, said Wike’s constant vibrations and nagging have nothing to do with the southeast presidency

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has accused Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike of deceiving PDP governors.

In a statement issued and signed on Sunday, March 12, special assistant to Atiku on public communication, Phrank Shaibu, revealed what Wike was chasing.

Why Wike is angry, Atiku’s aide reveals

Atiku’s aide noted that Wike’s wailings had nothing to do with ensuring that the south produced the next president, a report by The Guardian on Monday, March 13, confirmed.


He described Wike as a loser who went on to deceive other members of the G-5 governors, now battling for political survival.

He said:

“Wike’s grouse with Atiku Abubakar has nothing to do with zoning. He is only wailing because he lost the presidential ticket of the PDP in a fair contest. After losing, he deceived four other governors to join his futile campaign.”

Bola Tinubu: “Atiku, Obi, Working to Re-enact June 12 Scenario,” Presidency Drops Evidence

Meanwhile, the presidency has ruled out the possibility of annulling the recently concluded presidential election that produced Bola Tinubu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the president-elect, as it was done on June 12, 1993.

The President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration then urged Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP), to seek redress in court rather than calling for annulment.

According to the presidency, irrespective of the irregularities and harsh criticism against the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the results of the February 25 presidential and national assembly election cannot be upturned until the court proves otherwise.
