Wike Is Not Challenging Outcome Of PDP Presidential Primary – Gana

By Mohammed Baba Busu

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prof. Jerry Gana, said Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers is not challenging the outcome of the party’s presidential primary.

Gana, who is a member of the Board of Trustees (BOT) of the party said this in a statement he issued to newsmen on Friday in Abuja.

“Our attention has been drawn to some fake news, making it necessary to issue this firm statement.

“News in the media that Governor Nyesom Wike has commenced legal proceedings challenging the outcome of the 2022 PDP Presidential Primary, is false.

“We unequivocally state that Governor Nyesom Wike has not and will not challenge the outcome of the just concluded PDP Presidential Primaries in Court.

“He has long moved beyond such an action to focus on matters of how best to ensure victory for the PDP in the forthcoming elections. “

Gana also described as false reports alleging Wike had instructed the removal of the ceremonial PDP flags and insignia from the  Government House and Governor’s Office.

He said: “This again is false and misleading.  The Rivers State Governor never gave such instructions.

“It appears that some forces within and outside the party are expressly opposed to the reconciliatory moves between Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Wike.

“Such malicious efforts will surely fail, by the grace of God.

“Let me assure all party faithful and supporters that we are strongly determined to ensure the success of the current reconciliation process.

“Building a stronger and more united Peoples Democratic Party is our paramount priority as we move towards the 2023 General Elections.” (NAN)
