Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has alleged that Presidential Primary of the Peoples Democratic Party that produced Atiku Abubakar as the presidential candidate of the party, was manipulated.

Wike, who revealed this at an ongoing media parley said the love he and others in his camp had for the party was what prevented them from putting a stop to the convention.

According to him, the PDP’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, played a vital role that was detrimental to other aspirants in the emergence of Atiku as PDP flagbearer.

The governor alleged that Ayu called several presidential aspirants to step down for the former vice president during the convention.

Wike said;

“He was calling aspirants to withdraw for Atiku. I was there, Saraki and others were there.

“He manipulated the delegates. There was nothing Ayu did not do to ensure Wike didn’t emerge.”
