Wike may quit as Atiku’s South-South campaign coordinator



There were indications yesterday that Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, could quit as the South-South campaign coordinator for former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),

Sources close to the governor told The Nation yesterday that he was not happy because Atiku’s campaign committee was not carrying him along in its activities.

The governor was said to have complained that some of the people appointed to work with him were appointed without his knowledge.

An aide of the governor told our reporter yesterday that he was planning to communicate his decision to the presidential candidate.
