Governor Wike will not support Atiku, Fayose says, gives reason
Meanwhile, Fayose had said he believed Nyesom Wike, Rivers state governor, will never support the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
Fayose said this in an interview on Wednesday, June 29, adding that power must shift to the southern part of Nigeria in 2023 after the expiration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term.
Atiku promised Wike VP ticket, says Fayose
The former governor also recounted how Atiku allegedly promised to make Governor Wike his running mate after he was declared winner of the PDP presidential primary election.
He said Alhaji Atiku failed to fulfill his promise to the Rivers state governor when he settled for Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state as his running mate.
