Rivers State Governor, Mr Nyesom Wike has dissociated himself from a suit said to have been filed by him seeking the removal of Atiku Abubakar as presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 election.
He also said the reports by some media outlets that he had ordered the removal of PDP flags in Rivers State government house is false.
“I don’t know anything about the so called suit. I did not ask anyone to file any suit for me,” Wike told THISDAY.
He described the suit as the handiwork of mischief makers who merely want to use him to score cheap political goals.
“I don’t know the lawyers”. Continuing, Wike said, “am I a kid to be filing a suit at this time. I had 14 days after the primary within which to have filed any suit. I didn’t do that then, is it two months after primary I will file a suit?
“Just yesterday they came up with the claim that I ordered my Chief Security Officer to pull down PDP flag in Government House. This is all false, it’s all propaganda. Some people are trying to use me to win the election. Please disregard all these lies,” he said
