The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has said the President-elect, Bola Tinubu cannot work with Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State despite the latter’s assistance.
Atiku said Tinubu cannot invite Wike to his dinner table because the governor is a snake.
The PDP flag bearer spoke in a statement through his spokesman, Phrank Shaibu.
A statement by Shaibu likened Wike to a prostitute claiming to be in business to feed the poor, stressing that nobody believes the lies perpetrated by the governor.
He said: “Wike invited Peter Obi to Port Harcourt under the guise of commissioning projects only for him to work against the same Obi and then goes around to call Obi the hero of the election. This is obviously a shameless man who takes Nigerians for fools.
“Wike is a snake and that is why even after helping Tinubu to a dubious victory in Rivers State, even Tinubu cannot invite him to the dinner table because a snake is not the kind of animal you can invite into your home. Such animals cannot be domesticated.”
Prior to the presidential election, Wike had rejected Atiku and backed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The governor refused to support Atiku following a fallout due to the outcome of the PDP’s primary election.
