REVEALED: Somebody in Presidency backing Atiku’s 2023 ambition – Wike opens up

Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has alleged that someone in the Presidency is supporting Atiku Abubakar.

In his remarks at the Ahoada Campus of the Rivers State University, he said the party’s flagbearer and the chairman should be from the North.

The governor accused the Atiku camp of being arrogant because they believe they have a strong backing.

“They are arrogant because they believe somebody in the presidency is backing them.

“But what they don’t understand is that the same person backed somebody in the APC presidential primaries and the person failed.

“I will tell Nigerians at the appropriate time…the person in the presidency that is backing them”, Wike promised.

While speaking at the 97th National Executive Council (NEC) meeting on Thursday, Atiku expressed commitment to resolution of the crisis.

The PDP candidate noted that disagreements are normal in families, organisations and political parties.

“I appeal to all members of our party to make sure that our disagreements are resolved internally,” he said.

Recall that the former vice president is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Wike lost the ticket to him in May and continues to insist that the national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, step down.
