There is serious pressure on Atiku to substitute Governor Okowa’s name with Wike’s name, 9news Nigeria gathered.

“Politics is about capacity and structure. You need political stamina and weight to win a ruling party that controls so many states. Hate or love Governor Wike, he has the political capital to deliver Atiku when the chips are down”, said a source who pleaded anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the information.

Extensive Investigations revealed that Atiku was surprised to see the calibre of political heavyweights making spirited efforts to have Wike on board their boat and have put machineries in place to counter the development. One of the measures was a high powered delegation to meet Wike to plead with him not to abandon the party.

Further Investigations by 9news Nigeria shows that most PDP leaders are not happy with the retirement treatment given to Wike and have vowed to get their pound of flesh during the presidential election by working against PDP.

Another source who confided in 9news Nigeria correspondent said “that those who advised Atiku to dump Wike are his enemies because he may not be able to galvanize enough votes in the south to give him the needed margin for victory with the hurricane and whirl movement of the OBIdients( Peter Obi’s Supporters). Everything seems to be working right for Labour Party. Peter Obi and his supporters will sweep the south ahead of PDP and he will share the North with APC, the source thundered”.

9news Nigeria had earlier reported that Atiku singlehandedly picked Governor Okowa as his running mate after bowing to pressures from some quarters. The National Working Committee of the PDP had earlier set up a 17-man committee saddled with the responsibility of picking the running mate. The committee later zeroed in on Governor Wike which was replaced by Governor Okowa by Atiku.

It was learned that Governors Ikpeazu and Wike had been holidaying in Europe strategising on the next political statement to make. It was gathered that Wike had been scheduled to meet the APC Presidential Candidate, Senator Bola Tinubu who is in France for further medical appointment and further consultations to his ambition. The outcome of the meeting will determine Governor Wike’s next political move.

9news Nigeria therefore advises candidates and their supporters to do away with politics of bitterness but focus on issue based campaigns ahead of 2023 general elections.
