JUST IN: Atiku knocks Wike, Says Excessive Alcohol Damaged Ex-Gov’s Organs

Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has lashed out at former Rivers  state governor, Nyesom Wike, over claims that he was poisoned at the national secretariat of the party.

Politics Nigeria recalls that Wike had alleged the “poison” damaged his liver and kidneys.

But speaking through his special assistant on public communication, Phrank Shaibu, Atiku noted that Wike’s ordeal could have been caused by excessive alcohol intake.

He said Wike had always been open about his love for alcohol, especially whiskey, which he has even admitted to drinking in the early hours of the day.

“Governor Wike has always been open about his intense and indubitable love for whiskey. He even said back in March that he was sipping a 40-year-old whiskey with his friends while watching Atiku and others protesting on TV at 11am,” he said.

“Governor Wike has also been seen drinking and dancing in videos, including one he did with former Governor Rochas Okorocha. If Wike was indeed poisoned and his organs failed, he ought to be a teetotaller by now and reduce his drinking.”

He advised Wike to reduce his alcohol consumption adding that that judging by the rate at which the former governor drinks, he likely had alcohol poisoning and not food poisoning.

He further said even though he is not a medical doctor, there is a general knowledge that excessive alcohol consumption leads to high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, liver disease, digestive problems; and cancer of the breast, mouth, throat, oesophagus, voice box, liver, colon rectum and more.
