BREAKING: “For Fubara to Become PDP’s Candidate There Was No Frontrunner Wike Did not Appeal To” -Okazu Powers

One of the stakeholders in the Rivers State PDP has come out to say that the former governor of the state, Nyesom Wike, is not high-handed in running the affairs of the party. During his interview on AIT, Okazu Powers revealed the process that led to the emergence of Fubara as the governor of the state.

Addressing the topic, Okazu said, “How are nominations mad in Rivers State (PDP)? If you want to be a LG caretaker chairman and you have five leaders in your LGA, all of them will counter sign to your name. However, if they reject you, what Wike does is that he usually speaks to each LGA leader and he is willing to go to their houses to plead. That is what happens behind the scenes for someone to emerge. However, when they insist on saying ‘no’, he will tell you that his hands are tied and you cannot emerge. There are times when his own preferred candidates during elections do not emerge. I like to use the LGA election because that is a common issue in Nigeria.”

He added, “However, by Wike’s disposition and personality, you would think that he is someone who makes unchecked decisions, but it does not always happen like that. Wike is a good politician sometimes, as he massages the egos of leaders and talks to people. For Fubara to become the PDP’s candidate, there was no frontrunner Wike did not appeal to. He urged them to look at the issue as a family, as Rivers South senatorial district had never produced a governor.
