‘We won’t beg Wike’ – PDP BoT member, Waziri says party is bigger than personal interest

A member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees, Adamu Maina Waziri has knocked against the decision of the main opposition party to beg Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike over the choice of Delta state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa as Atiku Abubakar’s running mate in 2023 presidential election.

Waziri, a former Minister of Police Affairs described the move as ill-informed, maintaining that the party is bigger than the interest of all members.

He said;

“Wike is desperate and he needs time to be comforted over what happened. I agree with the reconciliation but where we part ways is the issue of sending that mighty delegation to kneel for him.

“Whatever decisions the party made, all obedient members should abide, we must keep aside whatever happened during primary elections and move on, the party is bigger than the interest of all of us.

“Wike said he would not be running mate to anybody therefore we must find someone who will work smoothly with our presidential candidate.”

Waziri also debunked the rumor that Atiku sent him to speak with Wike in Turkey. He said;

“Atiku didn’t not send me anywhere but of course I was in Istanbul Turkey for my leave last Friday and we coincidentally met in a hotel, that’s just it.”
