Trip to Abuja a reminder of my defeat in PDP presidential primary – Wike

Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, claimed on Friday that his visit to Abuja reminded him of his defeat in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary election that was conducted in the nation’s capital on May 28.

In the presidential primary, which was held in Eagle Square in Abuja and was won by the former vice president Atiku Abubakar, the governor came in second.
Wike said: “I want to once again appreciate My Lord, Hon Justice Abdu Aboki JSC for providing me this opportunity to be here and to be the principal launcher of a book written by retired Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Abdu Aboki.”

“But why I said My Lord did not do well is because if he had held this in Lagos or Kano, I would have been happy.”

The governor said when he arrived in Abuja and sighted the Eagle Square, he recalled the presidential primary experience.

He added: “When I landed and then passed through the venue (Eagle Square), I said I think My Lord intentionally wanted me to remember May 28 and 29 of what happened.

“Well, but life continues.”
