2023: Atiku Is Not Against Wike, Says Fayose


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, has opened up concerning the crisis brewing in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying that the presidential flag bearer of the party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is not against Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.

It could be recalled that the PDP has been witnessing a crisis since the emergence of Atiku as its 2023 presidential candidate.

Wike has not been happy with the PDP’s leadership concerning Atiku’s choice of a running mate.

In view of this, Wike demanded for the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu, the party’s National Chairman as the North could not produce PDP’s presidential candidate and the National Chairman.

Reacting, Fayose insisted that the supposed feud between the two men was triggered by enemies wanting friction in the party, maintaining that Atiku and Wike are in no way against each other.

Fayose disclosed this in the commissioning of the Obuama Community Secondary School in Rivers State on Friday.



He said, “For me, I want to believe his Excellency Atiku Abubakar is not against you but let me say this quickly: a lot of people surrounding the throne are enemies of the throne, and a lot of people surrounding the throne have an issue to grind with somebody or some issues with somebody and they take it to where they are not supposed to take it.

“There is no living being within this party and outside this party that will not acknowledge your contribution to this party. You’re the soul of this party even till now, what you do, how many people do it.

“Let me say: your good works will never go unrewarded. I have found out some things. The people that have benefited from you are the people that have pulled people down; the people you brought up; the people you laboured over for day and night.

He added: “I believe the needful will be done because winning an election is all that matters. Wike hasn’t come out to say that Atiku Abubakar isn’t the presidential candidate.

“I was there the second day after the election when our candidate, the former Vice President, visited the house, the residence of Governor Wike and we had mutual conversations; we were all happy. Everything was in place to move forward. I spoke at that meeting, but we don’t want to aggravate this situation.”
