PDP crisis enters new chapter as Wike reportedly reveals when he will teach Atiku big lesson
Legit.ng earlier reported that the Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, has vowed to teach those who undermined the voting power of his state a big lesson at the appropriate time
The governor made the strong comment when he played host to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state at the commissioning of the state projects
Wike's outburst could not be unconnected to the comment credited to the presidential aspirant of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, that he could win an election without Wike or Rivers state
