The governor of Rivers state, Barr. Nyesom Wike has denied suing the Peoples Democratic Party’s flagbearer, Alhaji Atiku Abubarkar.
News broke out Friday alleging that Wike had sued Atiku, Aminu Tambuwal and the PDP and prayed the court to declare him winner of the PDP primaries. Wike says he had no hand in it.
In the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/782/2022, Wike and a PDP chieftain, Newgent Ekamon, are listed as the plaintiffs. In the originating summons, the PDP is listed as the first respondent while the Independent National Electoral Commission is the 2nd respondent. Tambuwal and Atiku are listed as the 3rd and 4th respondents respectively.
