Wike Denies Suit Seeking Atiku’s Disqualification

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has denied filing a suit seeking the immediate removal of Atiku Abubakar as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in next year’s general election.

This publication understands that the governor distanced himself from the suit hours after it was reported that the PDP Chieftain filed a suit challenging the outcome of the opposition party’s primary election.

Naija News earlier reported that in the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/782/2022, Wike allegedly dragged the respondents to court over the conduct of the presidential primary that was held in Abuja on May 28 and May 29, 2022.

He filed the suit alongside a PDP chieftain, Newgent Ekamon, and listed PDP as the first respondent, while the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, is the 2nd respondent.

However, speaking in a chat with Track News Nigeria, Wike noted that he had no idea whatsoever about the purported suit nor know the lawyers who filed the suit at the Federal High Court, Abuja.
