Wike can’t deliver his polling unit for Tinubu – Atiku

THE presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, yesterday, mocked Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, saying the latter can not deliver his polling unit for the All Progressives Congress candidate, Bola Tinubu, whom he had allegedly chosen to support.

In a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications, Phrank Shaibu, the PDP candidate said: “Even the dead know that the APC can never win in Rivers State. Wike cannot deliver his polling unit to Tinubu. He is aware of this and that is why he is not bold enough to come out with his full chest to ask the people of the state to vote for Bola Tinubu. Rather, he is chasing shadows, making innuendos.

“At least Rotimi Amaechi was man enough to dump the PDP and defect to the APC in 2015, and openly campaigned for President Muhammadu Buhari against his kinsman, President Goodluck Jonathan. This is what real men do when they have the conviction. Wike said he would announce his preferred candidate in January 2023. Three weeks have since passed but he is not man enough to do so.”

Shaibu described Wike as a con man who, on the surface presents a façade of courage but was actually a lily-livered and small minded person hence his resort to the judiciary to protect him from being expelled from the PDP.

“Wike said if the PDP leadership had the balls, they should expel him. After making this statement, he quickly ran to a court to secure a kangaroo order barring the PDP from suspending or expelling him. This is a chicken hiding under the costume of a lion,” he stated.
