PDP: Wike Blasts Atiku, Saraki Says Consensus Candidate Is Rubbish

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has blasted Atiku, Saraki, and others for the consensus arrangement for the Presidential candidates in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Infoexpert24 reports that Wike faulted the arrangement describing it as rubbish and fake news used in deceiving PDP members.

Speaking with PDP delegates and members in Calabar, the Cross River State capital, on Wednesday, Wike said consensus could only happen through equity, justice, and fairness.

He recalled telling a former Senate President that he would not support a consensus arraignment in PDP.

According to Wike: “I am not here for any consensus rubbish. I have told people not to deceive our party members with fake news about consensus. We all believe in consensus, but it must come with equity, justice, and fairness.

“When some of my colleagues led by the former Senate President came to me, I told them I would not fall into the consensus trap. If you want to run for election, please run, and if you are not ready, please go home.

“They want somebody who would come and bow down for them. But what the country needs now is fearless and courageous somebody.”
