The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar’s camp has reacted after Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike pledged to assist Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate Peter Obi with logistics during his campaign.
Dino Melaye, spokesman for the PDP Presidential Campaign Management Committee, questioned Wike’s sincerity in demanding “justice” from the party’s leadership.
Melaye pointed out that most of the positions in LP are occupied by Southerners, unlike PDP.
Wike explained that Obi was a former governor; hence would provide him all the logistic support needed during LP’s presidential campaign in the state.
The leader of the G-5 governors disclosed this in Port Harcourt during the commissioning of a flyover in the state.
Reacting, Melaye, in a Facebook post, wrote: “Peter Obi’s visit in PH, Wike of Rivers state, stated that he would give Peter Obi support during the presidential election.
“In Labour Party, their National party chairman is from the South. The presidential candidate is from the South. Their DG is from the South. And the majority of their national positions are being held by southerners.
“So where is the justice Governor Wike is talking about? Time to reunite with your family my brother.
“Atiku Abubakar is the next President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria by the grace of God.”
