Atiku Promises To Support Wike For President In 2027

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, on Thursday met with the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike in Abuja.

Omadaily learned that Atiku offered to support Wike’s presidential ambition in 2027 if the Rivers governor supports him in the 2023 election.

This is coming days after the camp of Governor Wike pulled out of the presidential campaign of the PDP following the failure of Iyorchia Ayu to resign as the National Chairman of the party.

As of Wednesday, it appeared like PDP and Atiku were ready to move on with the 2023 race following the inauguration of the campaign council.

However, Atiku and Wike met on Thursday in Abuja, with the former vice president pleading with Wike to prevail on his camp to join the campaign train of PDP.

Sources close to the meeting claimed that Atiku during the meeting offered to support Wike’s presidential ambition in 2027, but Wike said he would consult his group and get back to Atiku.

A source said Governor Wike was not pleased with Atiku’s promise to support his presidential ambition in 2027 because he made the same promise to Igbo a few days ago.

He said the Rivers State Governor also noticed that Atiku does not keep to his promises over time due to pressure around him.

A source in Wike’s camp said, “This crisis would not have reached this level if Atiku had kept faith with London talks and unwritten agreement with Wike.

“Our group will soon meet on the latest overtures from Atiku.”
