Atiku, Okowa and Ayu have shared positions in PDP, Wike alleges

According to the Rivers governor, PDP had distributed positions to its presidential flag-bearer, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar; running mate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State and former Senate President Bukola Saraki, but had nothing to offer Abia, The Guardian reported.

He said:

“All those they are fighting are those who are projecting their party. They said Abia governor is a boy, Wike is a boy, Seyi (Makinde) is a boy, (Samuel) Ortom is a boy and Enugu governor is a boy, see what the boys are doing. They that are men should show us what they are doing.”

Responding when Ikpeazu suggested he should leave matters to God, he said:

“I was on plane with him and we were discussing and he said, why won’t I leave this thing for God and I said what do you mean by that?
“Why are you overcrowding God? God has given me what it takes for me to crush these people, for me to crush my enemies and you are telling me I should leave it for God. No. God has so many things to do.
“Now that I know I have the capacity to flog these small boys and you want me to go and leave it for God. I am going to flog them pepper.”
