Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has aimed a subtle dig at Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the 2023 election, saying the former vice-president ‘fled’ to the opposition in 2014.

There seems not to be an end in sight to the disagreement between Governor Wike; the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Iyorchia Ayu; and Atiku.

Speaking on Thursday during the Rivers State PDP stakeholders meeting at Government House, Port Harcourt, Wike said unlike those who “walked out from Eagle Square and joined the APC” in 2014, he will not leave the PDP.

“We are not like them, when in 2014; they walked out from Eagles Square and joined APC. Did they remain to fight inside the party? They ran away, but we will remain. Now there is a fight in the party, we will not run. We will fight it in this party,” Wike said.

“Those who run away from fight are weak people. But we will not.

“So everybody should know, this is the state where we are, so nobody should tell you stories.”

He also plainly accused Atiku of not holding Rivers State in high regard.
