2023 presidency: Atiku, Wike feud

Atiku and Wike have not been seen publicly together in 2023.

Wike started a feud with the PDP presidential candidate following the May 2022 primary election in Abuja.

The Rivers governor agitated for the resignation of the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, and also successfully drew support from key party chieftains.

According to Wike, he is fighting for equity, justice and fairness. The governor refused to support Atiku in the 2023 election, with the PDP candidate losing Rivers state.

Wike sends message to aggrieved opposition

Meanwhile, Governor Wike has said Nigerians have accepted the outcome of the 2023 general polls, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) deserves some accolades.

He stated this on Sunday, May 7, at the inauguration of the chairmen and members of Rivers State Primary Healthcare Management Board and Rivers State Independent Electoral Commission (RSIEC).
