A former presidential aspirant on the party’s platform, Dr Cosmos Ndukwe, has clarified the air on rumors about the person behind the suit challenging the Presidential election that brought in the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
Dr Cosmos Ndukwe said he was the one that sued the party and not the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike.
His clarification came following Wike’s denial that he sued his party’s presidential flagbearer.
The governor, who is currently romancing All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftains, inviting them to commission projects in Rivers instead of his PDP colleagues, said he neither went to court nor asked anyone to file a suit on his behalf.
He also said reports of the suit emanated from Atiku’s people.
Wike made the comments in Port Harcourt, Friday, during the official commissioning of some projects.
“I want to state categorically that if I wanted to go to court, I will go to court. I have kept quiet and busy delivering dividends of democracy. If I wanted to, I would have gone to court within two weeks after the primary. Because that is a pre-election matter. It is the candidate’s group doing all these. And they’re not doing him any favour. But I wish them good luck,” he said.
