Wike Wrotes Letter To 23 LG Chairmen, Asked Them To Resign If Tinubu Doesn’t Win In Their LG – PDP
This morning’s online edition of the Punch Newspaper reported that the Peoples Democratic Party’s Presidential Campaign Council predicted that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progress Congress (APC), would lose Rivers State to Wike in the upcoming election on Saturday because of Wike’s support for Tinubu alone.

Dr. Leloonu Nwibubasa, a spokesman for the PDP PCC in Rivers State, reportedly wrote this in a letter to Governor Wike on Sunday, and it was made available to newsmen in Port Harcourt. In it, he claimed that Tinubu “shot himself in the foot” by visiting Rivers without first meeting with Rotimi Amaechi, the leader of the APC in the state.

Leloonu added that no matter what Wike does to his appointees in Rivers, Atiku will still win in Rivers while criticising Wike.
“When I speak to you, there is disarray in Wike’s camp,” he remarked. Wike sent a letter to 23 chairmen of Rivers’ local governments, asking them to quit if Tinubu does not win in their area. If Tinubu did not win in their LGAs, he threatened to “announce their resignation that they are no longer chairman of council,” therefore he requested them to sign the letter as a precaution.
Leloonu continued, saying such a high degree of pressure should make it very evident that WIke is aware of the resistance he faces and that his viewpoint is not the position of his followers.
