Dino Melaye blasts Wike, says, ‘we will no longer tolerate his insolent tendencies’
The spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Dino Melaye, has blasted Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, who on Monday, ridiculed the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, after former President Olusegun Obasanjo endorsed the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, for the 2023 elections. He cautioned that the PDP will no longer tolerate Wike’s insolent tendencies.
Melaye berated Governor Wike for disrespect and unwarranted insult on former Vice President Atiku, noting that Atiku’s only crime was his defeat of Wike at the PDP National Convention in May 2022 to become the party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 elections.
Melaye in a statement declared: “Wike should be ashamed that he has constantly solicited the attention of Atiku by his continuous disrespect and unwarranted insult of a man who did nothing to you. Atiku’s only crime is that he won a transparent presidential primary.
“Wike was chief of staff to Amaechi but Amaechi did not trust him enough to hand over to him. I advise him to support whoever he wishes to support as we will no longer tolerate his insolent tendencies.
“The question is; is there something wrong with Wike that Amaechi did not hand over to him? Why will Prince Uche Secondus, Rt Hon. Austin Okpara, Sen. Lee Meaba, H.E Celestine Omehia, Chief Abiye Sikibo, Sen George Sekibo, Hon. Chinyere Igwe, etc, leave him unceremoniously for Atiku. Something is definitely wrong somewhere.”
