Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has reacted to media reports that he’s instituted a legal action against the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP; its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar; and Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal.
Recall that the opposition party has been embroiled in protracted crisis since the conclusion of its presidential primary election.
Speaking at the commissioning of House of Assembly Quarters in Port Harcourt, Wike said he was focused on delivering the dividends of democracy to the people of the state.
He stated that it’s the camp of the party’s presidential candidate that is behind the report, noting that they are doing that to tarnish his image.
“People have called me that I went to court against Atiku Abubakar.
“I want to state categorically, that I didn’t go to court. I just want to say it for Nigerians to know. I have kept quiet. I am busy delivering the dividends of democracy.
“If they lose election, nobody should call my name. I have told the candidate.
“If I wanted to go to court, I would have gone to court within two weeks.
“It is the candidate’s group that are doing all these things. Let the world hear. They are the ones plotting all these things, thinking they will spoil my name.
“We are supposed to be talking about winning election.”
