Bode George Speaks On Rift Between Atiku And Wike
The rift between Atiku and Wike started after the governor lost the PDP primaries to the former-vice president and subsequent picking of Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa as running mate.
Speaking on Wednesday during an interview on Channels TV, George said it was as if some kind of devil had entered the party.
George appealed to Atiku and Wike to “cool down”, stressing they must understand that their ambitions cannot be bigger than the PDP.
He said, “It is a major bother not only for me, it is a bother to a lot of the committed elders and members of the upper chamber of the party. It looks like some kind of devil has entered into the midst of our party.
“We have the capacity to resolve our crisis; we have enough experienced leaders, committed followers, who will sit and be able to resolve this crisis once and for all.
“Unfortunately we have a month and a week before we commence the campaign, my appeal now is that Governor Wike should cool down, presidential candidate Atiku should also cool down because none of their ambition should be bigger and higher than the ambition of our party. We are appealing to both of them.
“Because there is no organisation anywhere in the world that would not have crisis but the capacity and the ability to handle the resolution of such crisis would be a measure of how developed, reliable or respectable that organisation is.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Governor Nyesom Wike had asked Atiku Abubakar to blame those around him if he lose the 2023 presidential election.
