After emerging victorious in the keenly contested PDP presidential primary election over the weekend, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has today paid a courtesy visit to his fellow contestant in the primaries, Chief Nyesom Wike.

The Rivers State Governor, Wike, was the closest to Atiku after the votes were counted. The Waziri Adamawa called on all party members and his fellow contestants to join hands with him in wrestling power from the ruling APC.

From a total number of 767 delegates, Atiku polled 371 votes

Nyesom Wike – 237

Anyim Pius Anyim – 14 votes

Udom Emmanuel – 38 votes

Sen Bala Mohammed – 20

Senator Bukola Saraki – 70

Ayo Fayose – 0

Dele Momodu – 0

It is not yet clear what the purpose of the visit to Nyesom Wike is, but some suggest that it might not be far from the selection of a running mate for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and also a call to join hands in gaining victory for the PDP at the polls come 2023.

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
