The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Deputy National Youth Leader, Timothy Osadolor, says the Nyesom Wike-led group lacked the pedigree to question Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s faithfulness to the party.
Newsbreak.ng reports that there has been a frosty relationship between Atiku, the presidential candidate of the PDP, and Rivers State governor, Wike.
Both men have been at daggers-drawn over the removal of PDP National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu.
The Rivers governor and those sympathetic to his cause are aggrieved, following their perceived marginalization in the scheme of things within the party. But Atiku is not yielding to their demand to persuade Ayu to resign.
“That the G-5 purportedly led by Wike is talking about trust and loyalty is laughable and painful in the ears of discerning Nigerians,” Punch quotes Osadolor as saying.
“If anyone is to talk about trust, that person must not even stand close to Governor Wike to do so, for him or her to be taken seriously.
“We know Wike and Wike knows himself. He should tell us what happened between him and all those that helped him in the past starting from Peter Odili, who in his large-heartedness still tolerated him, to Rotimi Amaechi, another former governor.
“Wike coming out to say he will announce his candidate to Nigerians and campaign for the candidate is akin to the last kick of a dying horse.”
