The Rivers state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has debunked claims that Governor of the state, Nyesom Wike, has banned its members from campaigning for Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate, in the State.

DAILY REPORT NG reports that a former Rivers Southeast Senator, Ledogo Maeba, had said that Wike warned some chieftains of the party against campaigning for Atiku in the State.

According to the former lawmaker, Wike had issued the warning after he and some chieftains of the party visited the former vice-president and apologized on behalf of the governor.

Reacting to the claim, PDP State Publicity Secretary, Tambari Gbara, disclosed that Wike never banned party chieftains from campaigning for Atiku in Rivers State.

Gbara challenged Maeba to prove his allegation that the governor issued a threat against anyone campaigning for Atiku in the State.

According to Gbara: “If the governor wants to make that statement, he would make it official, that, in the State, nobody should campaign for Atiku Abubakar.

“Governor Wike is not somebody that hides his feelings. If he wants to say that, I don’t think he would say it privately. So, the person making the allegation should come out and prove himself.

“He (Maeba) should be able to furnish Rivers people and Nigerians with evidence.”
