Wike And Atiku Are Brothers – Jibrin Discloses Plan To End PDP Crisis
A former Board of Trustees Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Walid Jibrin has said that the Governor of Rivers state Nyesom Wike and the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar are brothers.
Jibrin who is the Chairman of the PDP presidential and governorship campaign council in Nasarawa State said this during his party’s zonal campaign rally on Thursday at the Awe Local Government Area of the state.
He revealed that leaders of the party were making frantic efforts to settle the disputes before the commencement of the 2023 elections.
According to him, “What is happening now in the PDP is a family matter. Alhaji Atiku and Governor Wike are brothers. As leaders, we are making efforts to address the issues, and we are hopeful that they will be resolved before the February 2023 elections.
“I stepped down from my position as BoT chairman to allow peace to reign in the party and pave way for other party stakeholders who had never occupied my former position to do so.
“I am confident that the PDP will retake the presidency and win many states during the forthcoming elections, so I am urging our party members and supporters to remain resolute in the struggle.”
Speaking on the Muslim-Muslim ticket fielded by the APC, Jibrin alleged that the ruling party was planning to cause division in the country.
He argued that Tinubu’s excuse that his wife is a Christian is lame and Insulting to the sensitivity of Nigerians.
He lamented that the former Governor of Lagos State could not be trusted as his actions could plunge the country into chaos.
“That singular unpatriotic gesture, coming at a time of rising security challenges confronting the nation is never a welcome development.
“The apparent late excuses by Tinubu to justify what is clearly an anomaly, that his wife is a Pentecostal pastor, are lame and insulting to the sensibility of Nigerians.
“And with what the APC and its presidential candidate have done, it is obvious that Nigeria cannot be safe in the hands of the former governor of Lagos State whose decisions and actions could plunge the country into chaos,” he added.
