A stakeholder in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday revealed that the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has shifted his attention from the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Atiku and the Governor in the past few months have been trying to end their differences ahead of the 2023 general election.
The stakeholder who spoke with Tribune claimed that Wike has shifted his attention to some people he believes are responsible for the crisis in the party.
According to the source, Governor Wike is isolating the former vice president from the problem in the party by shifting his attention to some people in the party.
The source further stated that the Rivers State Governor has been going after his friends and brother in the state chapter of the party.
The source said, “If you look at it closely, you will discover that Wike’s reactions are not essentially targeted at the candidate. He has shifted from the initial reaction to Atiku to a reaction to his friends and brothers in the same political party in his state.
“He has moved from there to go after individuals, who are members of the party who he believes have one form of hand or the other in the disagreement. When you look at it clinically, he is isolating the candidate from the problem.”
