Atiku vs Wike: Why PDP Cancelled Rivers Campaign Rally

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Spokesman Charles Aniagwu has stated that the party canceled its planned presidential campaign event in Rivers State due to the state’s increasing level of insecurity.

Aniagwu, the commissioner for information for Delta State, stated on AIT that the PDP called off the gathering to prevent bloodshed.

Aniagwu alleged that Nigerians did not see half of what Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike is doing today during the military era in the country and accused Wike of building traps for Atiku Abubakar’s followers.

According to the commissioner, the PDP would sweep virtually all the strongholds of the APC in the country.

He said: “Is it not preposterous that a Wike who claimed APC had cancer and PDP malaria that was treatable and now turned around to support same Tinubu and APC he once denigrated? That tells you the character of the man he is.

“Atiku has examined the whole scenario playing out in Rivers State, yes he may have enough policemen to secure him, his running mate, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa and indeed some leaders of the party in Rivers, but will it be possible to provide enough security for the massive supporters that would come to the stadium that was approved, cancelled and re-approved?

“So like Jonathan said in 2015 when he said that his ambition is not worth the blood of any Nigerian, the Presidential Candidate of the PDP and his running mate believe that their ambition is not worth the blood of any Nigerian and that they would not want to sacrifice any Nigerian on the altar of wanting to be President.

“We will device means of talking to our brothers and sisters in Rivers because we believe that Rivers state is still largely PDP and that they will vote for Atiku-Okowa and one way or the other we will reach out to them and talk to them but having to organise a rally where anybody will even have to lose his life is not something we would want to undertake.

“As Nigerians, everybody know that the conduct of the Rivers Governor in the whole processes have not demonstrated statesmanship.

“He is a member of our party and we have accorded him the respect we believe he deserves but you know that he has reciprocated that by way of his comments, actions and Nigerians must be weary of this kind of conduct.

“For us our determination is to bring everybody together in this country and Atiku and Okowa are ever determined to do that.

“Atiku and Okowa are ready to carry everybody along when they win including Nyesom Wike irrespective of the attacks and so let no one think that Wike will be in trouble if Atiku wins.

“Wike will not be in any trouble because that is not on the agenda of Atiku. Atiku is ready to recover our country and if Wike has any role to play in helping to get our country function effectively, we will do that.”
