Wike noted that it is expedient that Atiku calls these rumour peddlers to order stating that the presidency is his for the taking if he does the right thing.
“We are busy campaigning with our projects on how our party will win election in the state, other people are busy in Abuja carrying rumours and gossip up and down.
