I Won't Allow Atiku's Scavengers To Belittle Me - Wike Fumes


The Daily Crucible | Friday, July 29, 2022 

Rivers State governor Nyesom Wike has slammed the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar of lying and sending scavengers after him.

Wike who contested the PDP presidential ticket for the 2023 elections in May but came second to Atiku, said he would not allow the scavengers and attack dogs allegedly from Atiku to reduce him to the status of a guy.

The Rivers State governor who was reacting to Warizi Adamawa' recent interview on Arise TV, also claimed Atiku concocted lies against him.

“The presidential candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar when he unveiled his vice presidential candidate, no right thinking member and lover of this party will say the speech he made on that day was fair. Forget about the rainseekers, forget about the scavengers, I never reacted to it. I said, this party belongs to all of us. Thereafter, he appeared on Arise TV, see the statements he made. Several lies were told and then you say I should not react to some of those issues, that would not be fair. Assuming today I am not alive, obviously what they have said would be accepted as the truth.

“When people tell lies, it is very unfortunate. Some senators called me and told me that Atiku Abubakar said he sent Bukola Saraki to me. That is not fair, that is not correct. I was in the state, Bukola came to me. I asked him were you sent by Atiku Abubakar? He said no. I asked him what do you want me to do? He said the matter is so serious. He never knew this, this and that. Forget about sending scavengers. Some of them would call my friends and say ‘o boy, tell your guy na, make him support us.’ It has reduced to that level. I have become ‘guy’.”

“Atiku Abubakar came to my house (after the primary) to say I should support him. So he doesn’t know my house again? People I don’t even know are calling me to say I should support them. They are trivializing issues. No way, I will not accept that. Atiku cannot say that he has sent anybody to me. Let one person say that he came to see me and that he was sent by Atiku Abubakar. Forget about those who are running around, looking for how they will survive, saying ‘oh, we have tried to call him, he did not pick’. I don’t know your phone number, you tried to call me. If you tried to call me, you would have first sent text and say I am this person, please I want to talk with you. Nobody has done that," Wike said.
