…..remember the disgraceful fall of Biblical Pharoah and Nebuchadnezzar should be a lesson to you- Wosi

A People’s Democratic Party, PDP, stalwart in Adamawa State, Mr. Mark Wosi blasted the Governor of Rivers State, Nyenson Wike by warning him to tread with caution over his pride attitude for not accepting defeat.

He said the way and manner Nyeson is doing is becoming unbecoming of a politician of his worth who is heating the polity of the PDP unnecessarily.

Mark a loyalist of the PDP Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar warned Wike to know that Atiku started politics long ago before his dream of becoming a political figure in River state become a reality.

Wosi said the daily noise making of Wike has best described his political inexperience, forgetting that defeat is part of the game of politics that will make one a better politician.

But his attitude of not allowing PDP to be because Atiku is the preferred candidate to win through the popular votes of Nigerians is discrediting the party.

Mark advised Wike to stop shifting blame and stop chasing the shadows over the emergence of Atiku, the presidential candidate, and Iyorchia Ayu, the PDP national chairman.

He said Both Atiku and Ayu came through the party congresses, and he should be reminded that the Presidential candidate has the prerogative right to choose whoever he likes to be his Vice President.

“It always surprises me to hear Wike making noise that he has been keeping and running the party in Atiku’s absence. Let me tell you before Wike think of becoming a member of PDP many people have been running the affairs of the party.

” Wike is not a founding member of PDP, Atiku is a forefront founding member whose wealth was used well to grow up the party to its present glorious stand. And whenever Atiku left the party for another he did that for a concrete reason.

“For example when he was a Vice President and wanted to contest, President Olusegun Obasanjo stopped and threatened to expel him from the party. To prove a point it’s his right to contest, he went to court and a judgement was passed in his favor but he later left the party. This and many reasons Atiku at one point of the other left PDP for other political parties.” Wosi said

Wosi berated Wike to stop claiming that the 2023 presidential election it’s the turn of the South.

Mark going by calculation he recalled from Goodluck Jonathan’s administration when it was the turn of the North led by Umaru Musa Yar’adu’s administration, it was abruptly short-lived by his death and Jonathan has to take over, who is a Southerner.

“It was at this point that people like Atiku raise and say to Jonathan’s aspiration of continuity must not be, but won the election in 2011, a reason he (Atiku) left PDP again to APC in 2015 to prove to Jonathan that there is a zoning policy over the years been respected.

” So what is the noise about? Atiku has been a founding and a funding member of PDP, running the affairs of the party from his pocket before Wike should think of joining the party.

“Wike does not have to say he is the one bankrolling the party, Atiku has been doing that nobody knows and is still doing it without anybody’s knowledge.

” Atiku is a mature politician who since 1992 to date has been contesting elections to be the Presidential and losing he has never complained. But Wike’s case is different, I guise he is just a baby when it comes to politics. Because one lost an election and he wants heaven to fall?

“It doesn’t suppose to be so, he should allow PDP to move on, maybe is not his time, he should not take the position of God because he didn’t get the presidential ticket of PDP or he was not picked to be a vice president,” Mark stressed

The Atiku supporter warmed Wike not to play the position of God over his life and political career.

He chided the River state Governor to be careful not to end up being like the Biblical Pharaoh and Nebuchadnezzar whose pride made them have a disgraceful fall.

“I advise him to calm down and move forward the party with the good spirit of sportsmanship, because is not the first person to lose an election. He should allows peace to reign and allows Atiku to be in pushing the agenda of PDP to win the election come 2023.” Wosi added
