The presidential campaign team for Atiku Abubakar has responded to Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike on whether electorate would vote the PDP candidate. Charles Aniagwu, the spokesperson for the campaign organization in Rivers, said that was not solely for Wike to decide.
He said, rather, “the people on the streets” would determine Atiku’s fate. Aniagwu recounted that, while visiting Edo during his campaign for the PDP ticket, Wike “told journalists that votes are not warehoused in the Edo State Governor House and that the votes are with the people on the streets.”
“So by the same token, Governor Wike must also realise that the votes in Rivers are not warehoused in the Rivers State Government House and that they are with the people on the streets,” Aniagwu stated.
His reaction follows Governor Wike’s comment during the commissioning of the Rukpouku-I30-Ogbodo-Igwuruta link Road.
Governor Wike told the people at the ceremony that “you will vote for our governor, our senatorial candidates, House of Representatives candidates and Assembly candidates.
“Then, the other one (the presidential candidate), I will come and tell you where you will vote. Don’t worry, calm down.
“These ones I have mentioned now make sure you come and vote for them. Very soon, we will meet at our houses and take a decision about where we are going.”
