Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has denied a purported suit said to have been filed by him seeking the removal of Atiku Abubakar as presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in next year’s general election.

This comes few hours after some media outfits had reported that Wike had ordered the removal of PDP flags in Rivers State government house,  which also turned out to be false.

According to Thisday, the Governor denied knowing anything whatsoever about the purported suit or even knowing the lawyers who filed the suit in the first instance. “I don’t know anything about the so called suit. I did not ask anyone to file any suit for me”

The media was on Friday morning awash with reports that Governor Wike and one Chieftain of the PDP, Mr Newgent Ekamon, had dragged the PDP to court seeking the removal of Atiku as Candidate of the PDP in next year’s presidential polls.

According to the purported suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/782/2022, the plaintiffs were said to have hinged their claims on the grounds that the PDP primary conferred undue advantage on Atiku which aided his emergence as candidate of the PDP in the May 28 and 29 primaries.

Reacting to the publication, Wike denied the suit said to have been filed at the Federal High Court, Abuja. He described the suit as the handiwork of mischief makers who merely want to use him to score cheap political goals.

He stated emphatically, “I don’t know the lawyers”. Continuing, he said, “am I a kid to be filing a suit at this time. I had 14 days after the primary within which to have filed any suit. I didn’t do that then, is it two months after primary I will file a suit?

    If the outcome and prayers of the litigation benefits Wike or in his favour. Would he reject such largess and advantage?

    THE NEXT THING FOR GOVERNOR Wike IS TO LET THE WHOLE WORLD KNOW NOW AND IN ADVANCE OF WHATEVER THE OUTCOME OF THE SUIT THAT HE WILL NEITHER TAKE ANY ADVANTAGE FROM IT AND OR CLAIM ANY OF ITS BENEFITS.

    Let us preempt the black man sense right away so as to forestall the hands of Esau.
