The spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP’s) Presidential Campaign Council, Senator Dino Melaye, has warned Governor Nyeson Wike of Rivers State to stop insulting the PDP Presidential flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar at slightest opportunity.
Reacting to Governor Wike’s attack on Atiku after the former President Olusegun Obasanjo endorsed the Presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, Melaye asked Wike to go ahead and support whoever he wants to support and leave Atiku alone, “whose crime is that he defeated Wike at the party’s primary.
“Wike should be ashamed that he has constantly solicited the attention of Atiku by his continuous disrespect and unwarranted insult on a man who did nothing to you. Atiku’s only crime is that he won a transparent presidential primary.
“Wike was chief of staff to Amaechi but Amaechi did not trust him enough to hand over to him. I advise him to support whoever he wishes to support as we will no longer tolerate his insolent tendencies.
On Governor Wike’s inference that Obasanjo did not trust him to earn his endorsement, Melaye said: “the question is; is there something wrong with Wike that Amaechi did not hand over to him?
“Why will Prince Uche Secondus, Rt Hon. Austin Okpara, Sen. Lee Meaba, H:E Celestine Omehia, Chief Abiye Sikibo, Sen George Sekibo, Hon. Chinyere Igwe, etc, leave him unceremoniously for Atiku. Something is definitely wrong somewhere.”
