Gov Wike Angry, Pulls Out Of Atiku’s Campaign Team

Governor Nyesom Wike of River State and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has angrily pulled out of the campaign Council of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Wike’s group, after a crucial meeting in Port Harcourt early morning today, September 21, vowed not to partake in Atiku’s campaign activities until the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.
This is even as tension is said to be mounting in the South South zone of PDP over alleged move to relocate the zonal secretariat from Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
In a statement by the zonal Organising Secretary, Ekom Akonjom, based on a communique issued after a meeting of the party, said that a zonal consultative meeting, which ordinarily should hold in the Rivers State capital is scheduled to hold in one of the nearby states.
The statement said that supporters of Governor Wike, consider the move to hold the proposed zonal consultative meeting outside Port Harcourt as an attempt to whittle down the influence of the governor in the affairs of the party in the zone.
Wike and his supporters have been on warpath with the national leadership as well as the presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the aftermath of the nomination of the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as vice presidential candidate.
