Nyesom Wike has distanced himself from a purported suit filed by him seeking the removal of former vice president, Atiku Abubakar as the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in next year’s general election.
This comes a few hours after some media outfits had reported that the Rivers State Governor had ordered the removal of PDP flags in the State government house, which also turned out to be false.

According to Thisday, Wike denied knowledge of the purported suit or even knowing the lawyers who filed the suit in the first instance. He described the suit as the handiwork of mischief makers who merely want to use him to score cheap political goals.
He stated emphatically, “I don’t know the lawyers”. Continuing, he said, “am I a kid to be filing a suit at this time? I had 14 days after the primary within which to have filed any suit. I didn’t do that then, is it two months after primary I will file a suit?
The media was on Friday morning awash with reports that Wike and one Chieftain of the PDP, Mr Newgent Ekamon, had dragged the PDP to court seeking the removal of Atiku as Candidate of the PDP in next year’s presidential polls.
Marked FHC/ABJ/CS/782/2022, the plaintiffs in the purported suit were said to have hinged their claims on the grounds that the PDP primary conferred an undue advantage on Atiku which aided his emergence as a candidate for the PDP in the May 28 and 29 primaries.
