Nigerian lawyer and a former President aide Reno Omokri, has said that governor of River State, Nyesom Wike did not sue the peoples Democratic Party (PDP), presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar to court as some reporters claimed
Wakadaily gathered that, some media had reported that Wike sued former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over the conduct of the party’s presidential primary.
“Tambuwal had asked delegates to vote for him but returned shortly afterwards to ask them to vote for Atiku.
Atiku won the primary and clinched the presidential ticket.
Wike and Ekamon asked the court to “cancel the transfer of votes and a corresponding order restraining the 3rd respondent (Tambuwal’s) withdrawal in the primary was done after voting had commenced.”
Reacting to the reports, Reno posted on his Facebook page that, “Governor Nyesom Wike is a much-loved member of the PDP. He has distanced himself from the lawsuit.
His exact words were “I don’t know anything about the so-called suit. I did not ask anyone to file any suit for me”. If Governor Wike has grievances, we have internal mechanisms. And those mechanisms are being put into effect. PDP and Atiku have nothing but love for Wike.
“We are sorry to disappoint our enemies who expected us to fight each other in court, and who perhaps sponsored the spurious lawsuit No. Wike has not taken Waziri Atiku Abubakar to court. Atiku remains the unifier.
“We are on a forward march that will end, God willing, at Aso Rock on May 29, 2023, when the new Peoples Democratic Party administration is sworn in,” Reno wrote.
