Wike fires PDP over post electoral protest
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state on Thursday, took another swipe at People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and other leaders of the party over the recent protest at the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Recall that on Monday, March 6, the former Vice President led a “black uniform” protest to INEC headquarters alongside PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu; his running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa and other members of the party.
Speaking at the commissioning of Igwuruta internal roads in the Ikwerre Local Government Area (LGA) of Rivers State, Wike stated that he ensured his candidates won their election.
He said; “I won three of the Senate seats – three over three. Ask them, did they win three over three? You cannot win!
“I told them; they said they would conspire against me. Those who said they’ll conspire against me are those wearing black. I am wearing white and they’re wearing black.”
Wike reiterated that the integrity governors (G-5) gave an open floor for reconciliation to the PDP candidate, but that was neglected, which is one of the reasons the party couldn’t clinch power in the February 25 presidential elections.
He mentioned that all he wanted was a southern candidate as president and now he has one, stressing that power shift will ensure fairness, equity and justice.
