Presidential Ticket: Atiku Taking PDP Delegates For Granted — Wike by EcoBrick: 8:39pm On Feb 27

The Rivers State governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, has said the comment by the former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, that he would always clinch the ticket of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, meant taking delegates of the party for granted.

Wike also has said the outcome of the PDP presidential primaries would shock Nigerians, noting that whoever emerges of all the aspirants should rest assured that the entire party would rally around and make sure that he wins the 2023 presidential election.


Wike, while speaking in Port Harcourt on Sunday, said the comment by former Vice President and PDP presidential candidate in the 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar that he will always clinch the party could amount to taking convention delegates for granted.

According to a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri, Wike said: “I didn’t expect him frankly speaking to say that he will always take the ticket of the party. That is going too far and taking the delegates for granted.”

He said he is committed to doing anything that will ensure PDP returns to power in 2023, and begin once again the process of rebuilding the nation after years of All Progressives Congress (APC) poor governance.

The Rivers State governor, who urged PDP members to resist making divisive utterances, declared that the outcome of the party’s presidential election will shock many.

He said: “People should watch, there will be a shock as far as PDP convention is concerned. People should watch what is going to happen. People like to underrate so many persons and it is not good in politics.”

Speaking on the timetable just released by the Independent National Electoral Committee (INEC) timetable over the weekend, Governor Wike expressed confidence that the National Executive Committee (NWC) of the PDP will ensure the party abides by the timetable.

“We are a law-abiding party. The party will soon meet, the NEC will meet and find the way forward on how we will put our house in order and make sure we religiously follow the timetable of INEC without violating any provision of the law and guidelines that INEC may have produced,” he said.

The Governor commended PDP leadership in Plateau, Cross River and Ondo State for the sterling performance of the party in Saturday’s bye-election, attributed the victory of the PDP in the Jos North/Bassa federal constituency in Plateau State to the recent decision of the former Plateau State governor, Jonah Jang and former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FTC), Senator Jeremiah Useni to set aside their differences and work for the interest of the party.

He also lauded the PDP for winning the Akpabuyo State Constituency bye-election in Cross River State, irrespective of the violence unleashed by the APC government in the State.

Wike is just a noisemaker. Same man that Atiku trashed in 2019 PDP primaries.

Like you rightly said, SE and NE are already in the bag for Atiku so Wike should stop disturbing us.

Chill, South South owns PDP currently. Make all of us start to make mouth. Make we see where Atiku go go. The last time, na Igbo PDP delegates backstab Wike and South South by voting Atiku as against our choice of Tambuwal after Atiku gave them dollars and paid their hotel lodging fees in PH.

South East will likely vote Atiku again.

Delegates are always up for the highest bidder.


This is why an efficient corrupt-free direct primaries is a far more democratic option

HE Wike is already sounding as if he is contesting against HE Atiku.
It is going to be an Asiwaju of APC versus Turakin Adamawa and Asiwaju Tinubu will win.

Join the winning train.

Asiwaju Tinubu is a brilliant and visionary leader who will keep his promise to take Nigeria to greater heights.

Dollarman aka Atikulate will naturally get PDP presidential aspirant ticket, because pdp party members philosophy is personal interest against national interest.

If I am lying make wike legs straight.

True, how can you say "have I ever failed to get it"
You no rate PDP, you no rate Nigerians.

See, Nigeria is a good country. The attitude of our leaders is the contour.

No, he is not taking them for granted. He is just saying the obvious, he has always bought them with dollars.

Only Tinubu has ever outspent the American fugitive and Cameroonian bisexual called Atikuchukwu Abubakar.

Wike should go and sit down. Tambuwal, his preferred candidate, cannot win the presidential election. PDP members know that.
