Wike said during his meeting with Atiku Abubakar on Monday, he told the presidential candidate that some of the persons who are with him cannot and do not have votes unlike himself.
“We have done our own part and we never betrayed anybody, because it is not in our blood to betray. But it’s a shame to those people. Some of the governors from the south are the people they used to sabotage our interest. However, we have shown them that we are not like them. We have the capacity to do whatever is good for us.
“I don’t want to talk about some other people who cannot even win election in their own places. I’ve told them that this election, whoever emerges, I will support, and I am not going to go back.
“I saw one governor who was dancing. Meanwhile, he did not win one delegate. I told Atiku Abubakar this afternoon when he came to see me that ‘some of the people following you here, they don’t have votes; they're empty.’ I have votes. I have something to offer. Do they have anything to offer?"
After PDP presidential primary, Atiku holds crucial talks with Wike
