Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike has accused the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of working with the enemies of Rivers State, and snubbing him, the governor of the state in his selection of his presidential campaign council members.
Wike said that such is a clear indication that Atiku does not want him to campaign for him.
The Rivers State governor accused Atiku of disrespecting the whole of Rivers State by choosing to work with the enemies of the state.
He said that since he has shown he does not need Rivers State, the state will campaign for those it wants.
“The presidential candidate entered Rivers State and picked those he wants to pick without the contribution of the governor.
“So they said they don’t need me to campaign for them, that they don’t want Rivers people to campaign for them, will you force yourself?
“I have never seen how people will disrespect a state like Rivers State and go and choose those who are enemies of the state.
“So they don’t want us to campaign, let’s campaign for those who want us to campaign for them,” Wike said.
