[2023] ‘People like to underrate’: Wike slams Atiku over Presidential Ticket

The governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has tackled former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar for claiming he would always clinch the ticket of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.

Wike, while speaking in Port Harcourt on Sunday, said the comment by the PDP presidential candidate in the 2019 election meant he is taking delegates of the party for granted.

According to a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri, Wike said: “I didn’t expect him frankly speaking to say that he will always take the ticket of the party. That is going too far and taking the delegates for granted.”

The governor however noted that he is committed to doing anything that will ensure PDP returns to power in 2023, and begin once again the process of rebuilding the nation after years of All Progressives Congress (APC) poor governance.

He said: “People should watch, there will be a shock as far as PDP convention is concerned. People should watch what is going to happen. People like to underrate so many persons and it is not good in politics.”
