Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, according to Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike, is taking members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for granted when it comes to securing the presidential ticket.
According to Wike's spokesman, Kelvin Ebiri, the governor said this on Sunday in response to Atiku's comment about obtaining the party's presidential ticket.
Atiku Abubakar claimed confidence in winning the PDP nomination after a Saturday visit to former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
“I didn’t expect him frankly speaking to say that he will always take the ticket of the party. That is going too far and taking the delegates for granted,” Wike said.
“People should watch. There will be shock as far as PDP convention is concerned. People should watch what is going to happen. People like to underrate so many persons and it is not good in politics.”©Standard Gazette, 2021.
