Atiku told many lies in interview — Wike

Nyesom Wike

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has accused his fellow party member and presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar of telling lies in his recent interview.

Atiku spoke with Arise TV recently and spoke on multiple issues including efforts being made to appease Wike and other aggrieved members of the party.

Speaking with reporters on Friday at the Port Harcourt International Airport shortly after he returned from a foreign trip, Wike said no reconciliation committee has met with him as alleged by Atiku.

“He (Atiku) appeared on Arise Television, see the statement he made. So many lies were told and you said I should not react to some of those issues. That would not be fair,” Wike claimed.

Crisis in the PDP began after Atiku overlooked Wike for the vice-presidential slot. Some PDP governors had recommended Wike for the position.

“I have decided to be quiet because PDP is a party I love so much. I have moved on to conclude my social contract with the people of Rivers. However, it is time to let Nigerians know the truth,” added Wike.

The governor said that posterity would not forgive him should he fail to set the record straight.

He however promised to clear the air after the commissioning of the projects lined up for inauguration by the state government.
