Nigerians React As Atiku, Wike Meet Over PDP Crisis

Human rights activist and political analyst, Aisha Yesufu has shared her opinion on the demands made by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.

Naija News reports that the camp of Governor Wike stated that the National Chairman of the party, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, must resign from office.

The camp of the governor also demanded that it be allowed to produce Ayu’s replacement and the person should come from the South-West.

Wike’s camp also asked that Atiku must do only one term for them to agree to work with him and they should be accommodated in the new PDP government if it wins the 2023 presidential election.

In a tweet via her Twitter page on Monday, Yesufu said the demands made by Governor Wike are not outrageous as claimed by some Atiku loyalists.

The human rights activist also doubts if the PDP presidential candidate would agree to do one term in office if he becomes the next president in 2023.

She wrote: “Atiku will do one term? I laugh in Etsako. They will believe him if he says so? By the way nothing outrageous about the demands.”

Why Wike Should Shun Atiku, Tinubu, Back Peter Obi

The Non-Indigenes Association in Rivers State has called on Governor Nyesom Wike to back the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

Speaking to journalists in Port Harcourt, chairman of the association, Felix Ogbegbor, asked Wike to shun the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and that of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.

The group stated that they decided to back the presidential candidate of the Labour Party based on his antecedents as governor of Anambra State.

While insisting that Peter Obi had better plans for the country, Ogbegbor said that among the three candidates fielded by the APC, PDP, and LP, Peter Obi stood as the best.
