Port Harcourt, March 6, 2023 – Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers has blamed the PDP and its Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, for the failure of the party in the last presidential election.

He said the misfortune that befell the PDP was avoidable if the national leadership of the party had heeded many appeals and demands for equity, fairness and justice.

Wike said that Atiku’s loss in the election was due to his failure to heed the warnings of the G-5 Governors who called for equity, justice and fairness before the poll.

He said this on Monday at Okomoko Community, while inaugurating the Chokocho-Igbodo Road in Etche Local Government Area of Rivers State.

Wike said it was fair that the presidency had returned to the south because the north was completing its eight years at the presidency.

“Our constitution says in Section 7: 3c that there shall be rotation of public offices, of appointive and elective.

“You took the chairmanship of the party, you took the presidential candidate slot of the party and we came to you, saying this is against the spirit of our constitution.

“Give us back the chairmanship, you said no, that you must have it all because you have won.

“I said be careful then, and nobody wants to remember all those things when we were shouting,” he said. (GBN)
