Wike breaks silence, vows to reveal ‘truth’ about PDP crisis

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike on Saturday promised to reveal the ‘truth’ about the crisis threatening to ruin the chances of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party in next year’s presidential election.

Wike and some of his PDP colleagues believe he should have been selected as the party’s vice-presidential candidate, not Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.

Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom said Atiku jettisoned the recommendation of 14 out of 17 members of the committee that recommended Wike as his running mate, leading to crisis in the PDP.

However, Atiku said in an exclusive interview with Arise TV aired on Friday that he chose Okowa because the latter “could deliver”.
