Atiku Promises To Support Wike For President In 2027
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.
According to a source within the PDP “Atiku had failed to manage a simple matter that should have been nipped in the bud to ensure a United house. Instead, he allowed his ego and bad advise fueled by careless actions and statements of his aides who were busy adding fuel to fire daily. Wike and his supporters are a force to reckon with and if he thinks only northern votes will make him win, then he is mistaken. I think he is not trustworthy or ready to be President “
Wike according to sources gave no commitment to Atiku.
