Former Nigerian MP Dino Melaye took to social media to ridicule Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike for his actions before and during the presidential election, which has just ended. Recall that the PDP's presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, lost to Bola Tinubu of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the February 25 elections. Atiku was his second, behind the former Lagos governor, while Labor Party leader Peter Obi was his third.
Naija News recalls Atiku's dismal loss to Wike's Rivers State, among other losses. Wike and his G5 team (five of his PDP governors who were offended) to boycott Atiku in the presidential election because he refused to bow to their pre-election demands swore Wyke has repeatedly publicly criticized Atiku and the PDP leadership for not allowing the opposition to field candidates from the south. Governor Rivers is speculated to have helped the ruling APC candidate, Tinubu, win.
After mocking Atiku, Gov. Wike raised further allegations and said he was under no obligation to apologize to anyone after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced Tinubu as the next president.
Melaye took to his microblogging page on Tuesday to respond to Wike's latest boast that the G5 governors have nothing to do with the elections that have just ended.
In the Feb. 25 election, his Melaye, who serves as spokesman for the PDP Presidential Election Council, warned Wike, citing that some members of the G-5 lost the election, prompting him to shame Governor Rivers. The Kogi state politician claimed the G5 played no role in the presidential election that just ended.
