As the 2023 election campaigns formally kickstart in few days, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar might have ignored the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, with the appointment of the former National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, as Technical Adviser.

Also appointed are the former Presidents of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, Special Envoy and Senator Pius Anyim, Special Adviser.

Others appointed as Special Advisers to the candidate are former governor of Kano State, Senator Ibrahim Shekarau; former governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola and Senator Ehigie Uzamere.

Atiku, in a statement by his Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, said that the appointments were made to strengthen his presidential campaign team and are to take immediate effect.

Atiku Abubakar charged the appointees to use their vast political experiences in ensuring that the PDP presidential campaign records resounding success in the 2023 election.

It will be recalled that Wike has been on the warpath with many people within the party, including the National Chairman of the Party, Iyorchia Ayu, over Atiku’s emergence.

He has consistently demanded the resignation of the Chairman over zoning despite the vote of confidence by the National Executive Council, NEC of the Party.

Wike, who was instrumental to the removal of Secondus as the Chairman of the Party, recently tackled the former Chairman after the vote of confidence was passed on Ayu.

He said, “I was listening, watching, they said there is one man they call Secondus. They said he was dancing, celebrating that NEC gave their person a vote of confidence.

“He (Secondus) forgets history that the same NEC through Aliyu Babangida who moved a motion for a vote of confidence supported by the same person – Ndudi Elumelu. They gave him a vote of confidence, what happened? He left office,”
