An Abuja-based socio-political activist, Deji Adeyanju, has said Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State might work against the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar considering his new-found love with the All Progressives Congress, APC chieftains.
Adeyanju stated this amid the ongoing PDP crisis, which has led Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State to associate with some top members of the APC.
Adeyanju, in a chat with DAILY POST, said: “There is the possibility that Wike will work against Atiku and PDP because all politicians care about is their political interest and self-preservation, but in essence, nobody can tell Rivers people who they should vote for or not at this level.
“But for political expediency and other reasons, you need a governor who can galvanise people so that there would be massive voting, so that people will not be disenfranchised.
“The numbers can be significant if the governor has the capacity to help suppress votes or increase votes. These are some of the issues you need a governor and party for, so when it’s not working, there is the possibility that the people’s will can be suppressed.”
