2023: See What Fayose Told Wike Amid PDP Crisis

Ayo Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti State, spoke on the PDP’s internal conflict and insisted that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate, is not opposed to Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State.

Since Atiku became the PDP’s nominee for president in 2023, the party has been in trouble.

When Atiku chose Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa to be his running partner in the upcoming election, the party descended into chaos.

Wike finished second in the PDP’s presidential primary, but Atiku ignored him, causing the party to split.

Following his move, Wike called for the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu, the party’s National Chairman.

The governor remarked that neither the PDP’s presidential candidate nor its national chairman could be produced in the North.

However, Fayose stated that Atiku and Wike are not at odds with one another and that the rumored conflict between the two men was motivated by rivals who wanted strife within the party.

This was said by Fayose on Friday during the opening of the Obuama Community Secondary School in Rivers State.

He said, “For me, I want to believe his Excellency Atiku Abubakar is not against you but let me say this quickly: a lot of people surrounding the throne are enemies of the throne, and a lot of people surrounding the throne have an issue to grind with somebody or some issues with somebody and they take it to where they are not supposed to take it.

“There is no living being within this party and outside this party that will not acknowledge your contribution to this party. You’re the soul of this party even till now, what you do, how many people do it.

“Let me say: your good works will never go unrewarded. I have found out some things. The people that have benefited from you are the people that have pulled people down; the people you brought up; the people you laboured over for day and night.”

He added, “I believe the needful will be done because winning an election is all that matters. Wike hasn’t come out to say that Atiku Abubakar isn’t the presidential candidate.

“I was there the second day after the election when our candidate, the former Vice President, visited the house, the residence of Governor Wike and we had mutual conversations; we were all happy. Everything was in place to move forward. I spoke at that meeting, but we don’t want to aggravate this situation.”
