Atiku Promises To Support Wike For President In 2027 by kokoA(m): 4:46am On Oct 01, 2022
Worried by the danger posed to his ambition in next year’s presidential election by the camp of Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP’s) flag bearer, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has offered the governor a new deal.

Both men met on Thursday in Abuja in a fresh bid to patch up their differences, with Atiku promising to support Wike’s own presidential bid in 2027 if he (Wike) agreed to sheathe his sword and support him (Atiku) in the 2023 election.

The duo and their supporters have been locked in a face-off since June when the former vice president overlooked Wike and picked Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate.

Atiku even appeared to have decided to ignore Wike, and proceeded with his campaign while the Rivers State Governor and his supporters threatened to have nothing to do with the Atiku presidential campaign.

Five of the 11 state governors elected on the platform of PDP are in Wike’s camp, leading to a major crack in the party.

However, a fresh effort brought them together on Thursday where Atiku pleaded with Wike to prevail on his camp to join the campaign train of PDP.

Sources close to the meeting said the PDP presidential candidate offered to back Wike for the presidency in 2027.

Wike was non-committal to Atiku because of past breaches of commitment, it was gathered.


The governor reportedly said he would consult his group and revert to Atiku.

Sources also told The Nation that Wike was not excited about the 2027 prospect in view of a similar promise made by Atiku to the Igbo during a meeting with PDP stakeholders in Enugu earlier this week.

According to investigation, Atiku met with Wike behind closed doors at the governor’s personal residence in Asokoro District in Abuja.

A source, who was privy to what transpired, said: “Again, Atiku extended the olive branch to Wike. He pleaded with the governor to look at the bigger picture of winning the 2023 poll.

“He asked Wike to prevail on his group to join the PDP campaign train.

“Atiku promised to be fair to all PDP members despite the differences of the past few weeks which were caused by the outcome of the party’s presidential primaries.”

Another highly-placed source said Atiku offered to “support Wike in 2027 if he gives necessary support to him in the ongoing campaign.

Wike was not forthcoming and he avoided an outright commitment to Atiku’s request to be part of the PDP campaign team.

“He told Atiku that he would go and consult with his team and get back to him.

“So, he has kept Atiku in suspense again. We don’t know what the governor and his strategists will say.”

A source in Wike’s camp said: “The governor wasn’t excited about the 2027 poll prospect because he made the Igbo a similar offer in Enugu a few days ago.

“The major challenge which Wike felt Atiku did not address was trust deficit. Our camp is of the opinion that Atiku doesn’t walk the talk on any agreement or issue because of pressure here and there."

Let crisis consume both APC and PDP so that Nigeria can be liberated. Atiku should go home and rest we don't need him as president.

Wike should never listen to Atiku who conspired against his party's candidate (Jonathan) to enthrone this calamity personified called Buhari. Wike should know that Atiku is not trustworthy.

However, I still don't believe this news from Lagos-Ibadan express newspaper owned by Tinubu because it's known for propagating and spreading propaganda and outright falsehood.

There's nothing like Igbo presidency.

How many times have you heard people saying Fulani, Hausa or Yoruba presidency?

You say Nigerian president of Igbo extraction, not Igbo presidency.

I don't even know where you people got that phrase from.

Still on “promises”. . . . . Like Nigeria wants Wike? undecided

Wike does not have any presidential appeal. Simple.

Like Buhari promised to support Tinubu after using him as political stepping-stone? cheesy

Who cares? Please, let the people vote. No one can speak for the people.

Atiku can promise anything at this moment o; especially after seeing that he has no hope without Wike and his men.

But Wike would be the biggest fool on earth to believe Atiku after all the previous promises and agreements he failed to keep.

From a man that couldn't effect a simple promise of having his party chairman resign for it to shift to the south as pledged!
What about 'I am the stepping stone to Igbo president...'

Atiku and Tinubu are extremely desperate for power and there is a sinister reason for it.

He can promise anything but don't take his word for it.

Vote for Peter Obi

But I will advice you don't spend much, because you won't win. Obi will retire all of you. A vote for LABOUR PARTY/PETER OBI is a vote for a good Nigeria.

Unless Wike just wants to have something to hold onto and say Atiku did not keep to a deal else it is audible to the deaf and visible to the blind that this deal won’t work. Atiku will do two terms unless his health fails and he choose not to contest for 2nd term. So 2027 is out of the question. Secondly, why won’t a sitting Vice President want to contest? If he does, the best Atiku can do is provide a level playing ground and not interfere; let the most popular man win.

But going by his antecedents, e sure me die say Atiku go bring a core Igbo man and work hard to install am the way Obj installed Yar Adua. This is because, if we want to be honest, that is the only way an Igbo man can get to the presidency in today’s Nigeria. And if that Igbo man’s presidency goes well, finally south easterners can begin to get a fair shot at the presidency like everyone else.
