Adamu Maina Waziri, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees has kicked against the opposition party’s decision to plead with Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State over the choice of Delta State governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as Atiku Abubakar’s running mate in 2023 presidential election.
Adamu Maina Waziri, a former Minister of Police Affairs described the move as ill-informed, insisting that the party is bigger than the interest of all of members.
“Wike is desperate and he needs time to be comforted over what happened. I agree with the reconciliation but where we part ways is the issue of sending that mighty delegation to kneel for him.
Whatever decisions the party made, all obedient members should abide, we must keep aside whatever happened during primary elections and move on, the party is bigger than the interest of all of us.
Wike said he would not be running mate to anybody therefore we must find someone who will work smoothly with our presidential candidate.”
Waziri also debunked the rumor that Atiku sent him to speak with Wike in Turkey. He said;
“Atiku didn’t not send me anywhere but of course I was in Istanbul Turkey for my leave last Friday and we coincidentally met in a hotel, that’s just it.”
