PDP Crisis: Ayu Manipulated Presidential Primary – Wike
The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has opened up on events that led to the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as the Peoples Democratic Presidential candidate during the PDP primaries.
He said that there was nothing that the National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Iyorchia Ayu did not do for Atiku to emerge.
Wike made this revelation during an interview with Channels TV (Friday).
The governor alleged that Ayu called several presidential aspirants to step down for the former vice president during the convention.
“He was calling aspirants to withdraw for Atiku. I was there, Saraki and others were there.
“He manipulated the delegates. There was nothing Ayu did not do to ensure Wike didn’t emerge,” Wike said.
