UPDATE: Atiku Abubakar’s interview full of lies – Nyesom Wike breaks silence(video)

Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, allegedly told several lies during a recent interview, according to Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike.

At the Port Harcourt International Airport on Friday, July 29, 2022, Wike made the following remarks: “Thereafter he (Atiku) appeared before Arise Television, see the statements he made. So many lies were told”.

Governor Wike said in an earlier interview with Channels TV that he had kept quiet for weeks following the primary defeat because of his loyalty to the PDP. I’ve made the decision to be quiet since I love the PDP so much, he stated.

Atiku’s statement on the day he introduced Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running partner was criticized by Governor Wike as well.

Wike not only charged the PDP presidential candidate with lying, but also of manipulating some chieftains of the main opposition party to disseminate untruths against him.

In due course, he promised, he would react to Atiku and his “attack dogs,” one by one and line by line.

Remember how Atiku explained why he chose Wike as his running mate?

In response to a question about why he chose Okowa, Atiku stated that he wanted a candidate who could “deliver the policies of the party, and also strive to unify the country.”

“Governor Wike was not rejected. In the party, nobody was turned away. But you must recognize that the candidate has the right to choose his or her running mate—one with whom he or she feels they can cooperate peacefully while also carrying out the party’s ideals and working to bring the nation together.

“Governor Wike is a brilliant politician. He’s courageous, tenacious. I believe he has a future in the political evolution of this country. It’s not a question of rejection. Certainly, not. I think it’s too harsh a word to say that we rejected Governor Wike. Certainly not,” Atiku said.

Governor Wike claimed that former Vice President Atiku had not yet sent a representative to the reconciliation committee that the PDP leadership had established.
