Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Friday revealed that there was nothing that Sen. Iyorchia Ayu, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, did not do for him not to emerge as the presidential candidate of the party.
Wike said this during a live media chat with selected television stations in Port Harcourt.
“There’s nothing Ayu did not do for me not to emerge as the PDP candidate,” Wike said.
“Ayu did everything to manipulate the system to ensure that all the numbers did not add up.”
Recall that the PDP held its presidential primaries in May this year.
Alhaji Abubakar Atiku emerged as the presidential candidate of the PDP for the 2023 general election.
Atiku defeated Wike after he secured 371 votes, while the governor, who came second, garnered 237 votes.
