APC planning to disrupt PDP presidential primaries - Wike

Former Vice President and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has praised former President Olusegun Obasanjo for the role he played in his development in politics.

The Fulani businessman and politician beat 11 other contestants to pave the way to face his kinsman Buhari, who also got the nod of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) earlier on Sunday. A landmark event in the sense that since the rebranding of our great party, the PDP, and infact I daresay, since the return of democratic rule of governance in this country, we have witnessed the most credible transparent and fair primaries.

"Exactly 10 months after that pledge, I can, with gratitude to God and utmost humility, report to you that the PDP of today is improved, enhanced and has migrated from an opposition party to a ruling party in waiting".

According to Daily Post, Wike said that the PDP primaries will go smoothly despite APC's plot.

"Governor Wike personally extended his congratulations to the Former Vice President after his election was announced by the chairman of the National Convention Planning Committee, Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa", the statement read.

Abubakar has already run for the presidency four times.

He said "As at thursday, APC brought hoodlums to create an atmosphere of insecurity in Rivers State".

Wike also called on everyone to join hands with whoever emerges as the PDP presidential candidate to sack Buhari's government, which he described a s a failure.

Nigerians will elect governors and lawmakers as well as the president in elections set for February and March next year.

"The fact that nobody came forward to challenge the president is an indication that the party members are satisfied with his performance and they want to see more of him in office", presidential spokesman Garba Shehu told AFP.
