Atiku emerged the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the party’s primaries which held in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.


Wike who backed Sokoto State governor Aminu Tambuwal against Atiku in the primary election, stormed out of the venue shortly after the declaration of the winner.

However, Wike said he has accepted the outcome of the primaries and willing to move forward in the interest of the party.

He further pledged his support for Atiku stating that he will stop at nothing to ensure the party emerged victorious in 2019.

He tweeted:

”In the buildup, I had a candidate and i supported my candidate openly, that doesn’t translate to not accepting the outcome which was sincerely in favour of Alhaji Atiku. We will stop at nothing in the support of HE @atiku to make sure the party comes out victorious in 2019.”

His tweet puts to sleep the rumors going around which state that he is planning on dumping the party after his candidate failed to clinch the party’s presidential ticket.
