Isaac's claim stems from a video of an Arise TV reporter, Reuben Abati, who while introducing Atiku started with the title but recalled that the politician had opted for the removal of Alhaji whenever he is being addressed.

Governor Wike will not support Atiku, Fayose says, gives reason

Meanwhile, Fayose had said that Nyesom Wike, Rivers state governor, would 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 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.

His words:

“Wike never said he wanted to be VP, but when Atiku visited him, he was the one who said, ‘I want you to be my VP’. He said that to Wike. If that then changes, is Wike not supposed to be told? Is he not supposed to know?”
