Okowa: Wike, others deserve explanation from Atiku, says Ortom
The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, on Wednesday, said his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike, and others who backed Wike for the Peoples Democratic Party vice-presidential ticket slot deserve a detailed explanation from the party's presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
“Some of us believe that Wike has the capacity but Nigerians or let me say the PDP people did not give him the opportunity. Some of us rooted for him. I was amongst the 17 members committee that was set up by the candidate himself and the party and some of us said that for the vice presidency of the party, we needed Wike to be the vice president so that he can bridge the gap.
“We (the committee) said it does not matter whether he supported the presidential candidate or not, all we are looking for is unity and how we can make things work. Unfortunately, it was said that it is Governor Ifeanyi Okowa who is also a PDP member. And that is the wisdom of the presidential candidate.
What is Ortom saying? He headed the committee saddled to zone the presidency to the south, he failed. Let him apologize and stop playing to the gallery. Simple he has Some personal intent and he knows for sure Wike would constantly challenge him unlike Okowa!! But in a long run Atiku did not think he decision through!! Now the party’s Jeopardy is getting worse.
Atiku had a choice and he made one. What's the problem with that? GovWike is a Force that can't be underestimated, leave it or take it he GovWike command alot of followers more than sleeping okowa, OfficialPDPNig will definitely loss the election, I have decided to be obidient No turning back No turning back
Chosen okowa over wike after the members of committee recommended wike is something Atiku and okowa can't get away from it, Atiku has made a very costly mistake in his life With this interview, Atiku does not act like a democrat, 14 out of 17 voted for Wike as VP, Atiku feel he is wiser than the 14 and picked Okowa with only 3 votes. It's undemocratic and pointer what he will do if he becomes president, too sad.
You guys should tell that propaganda and worse Nigeria Governor that he have not explained to Orker Jev and Benue Zone B how he collected his senatorial ticket by force. And that he should pay salaries and pension as he don't have one single project. Okowa: Wike, others deserve explanation from Atiku, says Ortom

Some of us rooted for him. I was amongst the 17 members committee that was set up by the candidate himself and the party and some of us said that for the vice presidency of the party, we needed Wike to be the vice president so that he can bridge the gap. Ortom, who appeared on Arise TV on Wednesday morning, also claimed that it was Wike who brought him back to the PDP in 2015 when he was treated unjustly. “We (the committee) said it does not matter whether he supported the presidential candidate or not, all we are looking for is unity and how we can make things work. The candidate then Ifeanyi Okowa, governor of Delta, as his running mate despite the party’s national working committee (NWC) endorsing Wike for the role. Unfortunately, it was said that it is Governor Ifeanyi Okowa who is also a PDP member. “When people left the party, Wike was on ground. And that is the wisdom of the presidential candidate. He’s somebody who stood for the party and made sure that things worked.
“Some of us have resorted back to prayers because I am really confused. “He brought me back to PDP in 2015. He added that he will be supporting Atiku’s presidential bid only if God directs him. I felt that Wike would have been the vice-presidential candidate of the party after losing the presidential ticket to Atiku. He was the second person to Atiku and Wike has the charisma. The party and national level should go to him and appeal to him. “All of us have our weak spots. Some of us believed in him, but unfortunately, it was somebody else. Wike can be something something, but when it comes to mobilisation, impact, value addition and reaching out, and making sure that the party works, Wike is an instrument.” DAILY POST reports that Wike has been involved lately in closed-door meetings with some top politicians who visited his country home shortly after the 2022 PDP presidential primaries and controversial selection of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as running mate. We’ve resorted to prayer: ‘Lord God, where do we go from here.
Wike is somebody who stood for the party and makes sure that things work. So, for some of us, we believe in him but unfortunately, it was somebody else and it doesn’t matter because the party is supreme. The visits were a sequel to a strong rumour of Wike’s alleged plan to dump the PDP after failing to make the cut in becoming a running mate to the flag bearer of the party for the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar. I have been in hibernation. But for some of us, now I have resorted to prayers and if you haven’t seen me in Turkey, it is because I am praying. “I have resorted to prayers: Lord God, where do we go from here? Where is our country going and what is our problem? I tell you as a Christian, that I believe that power belongs to God. Meanwhile, Wike left the shores of Nigeria for a holiday in Turkey. John 3:27 says “A man can receive nothing except it is given to him from above”. The Bible says a man can receive nothing except it is given to him from above. I am fasting and praying.
If God says it is Atiku and if God says it is whoever, that is all. Related Topics:.” When asked if he supports Atiku, he said, “I told you I am praying. I have gone into hibernation and I am fasting and praying. I am fasting and praying. So, in the end, if God directs me to support Atiku, why should I not do it? After all, he is my party man. “But I am waiting for him because there are more things he is expected to do. I expect more explanation.
I expected him to reach out to Wike who came second and he denied him the popular view of PDP members. I expect him to reach out to Wike, who came second in the presidential primary. 14 out of 17 members say that Wike should be the VP but in his wisdom, he chose Governor Okowa. Governor Okowa is a nice man and my friend and I have no problem with him. But if we are in a democratic era, and 14 people out of 17 said that it should be Wike, and he in his wisdom gave it to Okowa, I expect more explanation, I expect him to talk to Wike first, I expect him to even reach out to some of us so that together we can work as a party. I expect him to talk to Wike — whom we are supporting — first. “But the bottom line for me is that I have gone into hibernation and I am praying and at the end, whatever God directs me, I can assure you that I will do it.
