323

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has denied filing a suit against the Peoples Democratic Party, its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal.

Supporters of Wike had taken Atiku, Tambuwal, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to court over the conduct of the PDP presidential primary election which took place in May.

Speaking at the commissioning of House of Assembly Quarters in Port Harcourt, Wike said he was focused on delivering the dividends of democracy to the people of Rivers State.

Wike lost the party’s presidential ticket to Atiku after Tambuwal stepped down for the former vice-president and asked his supporters to vote for him.

“People have called me that I went to court against Atiku Abubakar.

“I want to state categorically, that I didn’t go to court. I just want to say it for Nigerians to know. I have kept quiet. I am busy delivering the dividends of democracy.

“If they lose election, nobody should call my name. I have told the candidate.

“If I wanted to go to court, I would have gone to court within two weeks.

“It is the candidate’s group that are doing all these things. Let the world hear. They are the ones plotting all these things, thinking they will spoil my name.

“We are supposed to be talking about winning election.”
