Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP presidential candidate has accused Governor Nyesom Wike of abandoning three of his fellow G5 governors after all three lost in the bid to go to the Senate.
Atiku spoke as he reviewed recent assertions of the Rivers State governor describing his rival for the presidential ticket as a sore loser who he claimed had gone ahead to deceive the other members of the G5.

Speaking through his special assistant on special communication, Phrank Shaibu, he said that Wike’s contentions had nothing to do with ensuring that the south produced the next president noting that the Rivers governor had been desirous of being his running mate.
Atiku’s aide added, “Wike’s grouse with Waziri Atiku Abubakar has nothing to do with zoning. He is only wailing because he lost the presidential ticket of the PDP in a fair contest. After losing, he deceived four other governors to join his futile campaign.
“Three governors of the G5 failed woefully at their senatorial elections, including Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, who, as a sitting governor, came a distant third in the Abia South senatorial election. For Governor Seyi Makinde, his ambition is hanging by a thread after his misadventure cost the PDP to lose all three senatorial elections.

“Wike has not held a single meeting with his G5 members, having dumped them since their defeat. He has been rejoicing over the outcome of the polls even though his men have all lost. This is the sort of man he is, and yet he claims not to be committing anti-party infractions,” the Atiku aide said in reacting to what he claimed as the indifference of Wike to the Senate loss by his G5 contemporaries.
