“If you are actually working for Atiku to win the presidency you cannot be insisting on a chairman because the president when he is elected can always change a chairman whether he is acting or elected."

Wike camp has failed in their agitation, Metuh said

While insisting that the Wike camp has failed in articulating their agitation through the right channel, he affirmed:

“If you want the chairman not to continue, then engineer the party to ask him, engineer the National Executive Committee, engineer the National Caucus, engineer the leadership of the party to ask him, then he will resign. But when you are outside and issue press statements it is not the party that is talking, it is an individual or group of friends that are talking.”

Saying that Atiku was also under pressure to move against candidates in the Wike camp and those aligned to them, Metuh said:

“I am aware that there is a lot of pressure asking him to issue the same statement against those people but he has not.

He has not taken any hard stance. He has been accommodating. They pushed him to London, he went to London. They will him this he will say, anything they say.”

2023: How karma is hunting Atiku, Wike, Ayu, others in PDP

Many have tagged the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari as a total failure because of the persistent insecurity and rising inflation, which has made the pockets go dry and subject the bellies to hunger, but karma seemed to be on his side and his party ahead of the general election.

The insecurity and inflation have swept Buhari’s landmark achievements in infrastructure and agriculture under the rug, influencing the retired general’s comment that those who are supposed to talk about his achievements are not doing so.

The largest opposition, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which is meant to seize the opportunity on the ground and hijack the power from the All Progressives Congress (APC), decided to play the tribal game and jeopardised the hope of southerners taking over from Buhari.
