Wike Connived With Kwankwaso To Create Problems In Kano PDP

One of the founding fathers of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Aminu Wali, has accused Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State of conspiring with the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, to plunge the party into crisis in Kano State.

Speaking to Sunday Sun, Wali stated that despite the gang up against him by the duo, he has nothing against Wike.

Wali, who will be 81 years next month, said the PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, chose Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate because he won’t give him problems.

He said: “I don’t have anything against Wike, even though he created my own problems in my state (Kano State). Him and Kwankwaso, they connived and created the internal party problems that we are facing in the state. But for me this is politics. I will not take it against him.”

On if Okowa can bring the votes Atiku needs to win the 2023 election, Wali said: “He may not be able to do that. But even when Peter Obi ran as a deputy to Atiku, the votes we got did not translate to what we had expected in 2019.  

“Yes, Atiku got his 25 percent in most of these states, but I still believe that Atiku would be able to get the same 25 percent even from the Southeast without Obi. That is my belief, but I may be wrong.”

He added that Okowa’s by his demeanor is peaceful, adding that he is never controversial, “and for a presidential candidate, somebody that expects to be president, you will want to have somebody that is peaceful, knowing that there would not be a lot of problems in his absence.”

“I think that this is what went for Okowa because I think that generally within the party, both North and South, Okowa has respect from everybody.

“He may not be the sort of crowd puller that Wike is, but for the presidential candidate and for those senior members of the party, I know that they would be more comfortable with somebody that would not create a lot of problems wherever he goes and would leave the president to spend most of his time trying to sort out little problems wherever he goes rather than facing administrative problems,” Wali added.
