Why Is Your BP Rising? Wike Queries Atiku Over Reported Meeting With Tinubu

The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has queried the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, over a recent statement credited to him.

It had been reported that Atiku in a statement issued on Friday by his spokesman, Phrank Shuaibu, said he was not perturbed by the plots of five aggrieved governors, popularly known as G-5 governors, to endorse another presidential candidate and their reported meeting with the All Progressives Congress (APC) flagbearer, Bola Tinubu.

Atiku asserted that he is an elephant that has seen everything, noting that anyone that wants to stop his presidential bid should first make himself President of Nigeria.

Reacting to the statement on Friday during the flag-off of the construction of Eneka-Igbo Etche Road, Wike queried the reason Atiku and his camp are having high blood pressure on issues relating to G5 which they labelled as unimportant.

He demanded to know why they are bothered when they told Nigerians they are not worried about G-5 governors and their preferred presidential candidate.

The governor, who noted that he is not afraid of any politician, warned his political foes that they have not seen trouble yet ahead of the 2023 presidential election.


He said: “We will go and swim, you are worried, yet you tell Nigerians you are not bothered. They said I had conversation with BBC, where is the picture and video. We don’t have Journalists again we have pressmen. You can see people not being able to give the correction information. Newspaper and Television houses are now running and standing for election.


When I want to do something I will do it. You don’t need to speculate. They said there is trouble, there is no trouble. What we have is the introduction to the trouble that will come. Please my dear people, don’t border yourselves. They said we had meeting with somebody, what is your problem with it. Has Atiku not held meetings with governors of APC, ask him. As he is in Dubai, don’t we know what is going on?

So, why do you border about us, G- 5 governors you said you can win without us. Leave us alone.

Leave me alone, leave Seyi Makinde alone, Leave Ortom alone, leave Ikpeazu alone, leave Ugwuanyi alone and focus on your problems.

If you check their BP (blood pressure) it’s very high. My BP is like a kid … bring a doctor to check. Their own is running high every day. They are killing themselves for nothing.

So, just focus on what we are doing and forget their rumour mongering. Instead of them to focus on their campaign …. Am I contesting election? You that is contesting go and focus on your campaign. Tell the people what you will do when you enter.”
