Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has asked Atiku Abubakar, Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to be mindful of those around him if he wants to win next year’s election.
He gave the warning while speaking in Port Harcourt during the inauguration of the Rivers State House of Assembly Quarters by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, on Friday.
Wike stated that those around Atiku might cost him the election.
Wike said some persons were busy going after him when the target ought to be how to win the 2023 general election for the PDP.
“This should be the focus of all true lovers of PDP who want electoral victory. You’re supposed to be talking about how you will win election. All these rent seekers around him (Atiku) are not doing him any favour. Rather they are trying to make him not to win election. But if that is what they wish, I wish them good luck.”
“You see that I am not talking. I am doing my work, so leave me to do my work. Those concocting ideas everyday, social media cannot make you win election. Election is about the people and by the people. Those in Abuja with you (Atiku), tell them to go home and campaign for you to win election. Leave Wike alone, enough is enough.”
