The Presidential Candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has advised Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike to stop speaking while he is under the influence of alcohol.
Wike had while addressing supporters at the Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State on Friday stated that he was drinking a 40-year-old whiskey while he was watching members of his own party on TV protesting against electoral fraud of February 25 in Abuja, Daily Trust reports.
In a statement on Sunday, however, Atiku’s Special Assistant on Public Communication, Mr. Phrank advised Wike to stay off alcohol as it had not only affected his voice and demeanour but also his thinking faculty.
“Governor Wike has confirmed what we all know. That he is a drunkard. The protest that was led by Waziri Atiku Abubakar on Monday, March 6, 2023, was against the stealing of the mandate of the Nigerian people, which in itself was a noble cause.

“For the sake of clarity, the protest occurred around 11.30am. Governor Wike says he was drinking whisky during the protest at 11.30am on a Monday. This reveals the sort of man he is – a dipsomaniac who abandons his official duties on Monday morning to binge on whisky.
“This explains the reason for his coarse voice, which is similar to that of a motor park tout. It is obvious that Governor Wike also dances under the influence of alcohol. No wonder it is characterised by aesthetic vulgarity.
“It is a common rule that you do not drink and drive. Unfortunately, a drunkard is the one steering the wheel of governance in Rivers State. This is more disturbing because he is married to a judge. Indeed, the term, as sober as a judge, could not even rub off positively on the cantankerous governor.”
Shaibu said Wike’s vituperations and wailings had nothing to do with ensuring that the south produced the next president, Vanguard Newspaper added.
He argued that Wike was just a sore loser who had gone on to deceive other members of his G5 who are now battling for political survival.
Shaibu also lambasted Wike for admitting on video to have manipulated the outcome of the elections in his state in the last election.
Governor El-Rufai’s son gives juicy prophecies on Wike, Kwankwaso

In a tweet on Saturday, March 11, Bashir said something good is coming for Kwankwaso in the future even if he lost in the last presidential election.
He noted that a few years from now, the former Kano governor will become the next president like Muhammadu Buhari.
