The younger brother to former Ekiti state Governor, Ayodele Fayose, Isaac has alleged that Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state is working for Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Fayose made this disclosure in a statement via his Facebook page on Tuesday which was sighted by Africa Today News, New York.
He stated, ‘It’s almost election day. Labour Party (LP) and support groups for Peter Obi need to consolidate in SS, MD (Especially Plateau, Benue), Ondo, Lagos, Kaduna, Taraba. These are the strong regions to get high numbers.
‘The SE needs to show its hands massively.
‘For SS: Wike is working for BAT, there is a heavy propaganda going on in Akwa Ibom, Okowa is ready for war in Delta, Bayelsa needs a structure to convert, Edo is certain.
‘BAT is playing a victim in the SW, and unfortunately, it’s working.’
Africa Today News, New York recall that Wike has been at war with the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, after losing the party’s presidential ticket to Atiku Abubakar.
The face-off with Atiku led to Wike’s call for the removal of the PDP’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.
Wike and the G-5 governors said the party can’t have the North produce the party’s national chairman and presidential candidate.
Their grouse with Atiku and PDP is that a southerner should be allowed to produce the party’s national chairman for the sake of balance and equity.
Meanwhile, Governor Nyesom Wike has revealed that the state government has re-issued the approval for the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to use the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in the state to host its presidential campaign rally.
Africa Today News, New the Rivers State Government had on January 31 withdrawn the initial approval of February 11 on the grounds that credible intelligence and recent development show that the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation is working in collaboration with the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers.
The government said it understood that the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation was intending to share the approved facility with the APC whose activities are characterised by violence and destruction.
