Ex-militant leader, Asari Dokubo, has called on Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike to apologise for his comment that he was betrayed during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential primaries held in Abuja over the weekend.
Wike, who lost the PDP presidential primaries with 237 votes to former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar who polled 371 votes, had alleged that he was betrayed by some governors from the South- south part of the country who were supposed to support his ambition.
But reacting to the claim by Wike via Facebook Live on Tuesday, Dokubo said Wike’s presidential bid was very laughable, given that he ought to know his boundaries.
Consequently, he urged Wike to repent, make restitution, and reconcile with “all those he offended by his actions and utterances”.
He maintained that the governor lacked the moral right to complain about betrayal, given his actions towards some of his allies, including former National Chairman of PDP, Uche Secondus, and chairman of the party in Rivers, Felix Obuah.
He said, “I was livid with anger [sic] that Nyesom Wike will tell people that he was betrayed. Betrayed by who? The people you are abusing? The people you treated like rats?
“They should accept your aspiration so that when you reach Abuja as president, you will kill us? People don’t advise you. You have cows like Ishi Samuel Nwanosike, you made Chairman, that has elevated you to the position of a god.”
Continuing, he said “If someone should be talking about betrayal, it should be former PDP Chairman, Uche Secondus. You kicked him out, destroyed his political career, because of your political aspiration, now you are talking about betrayal.”
The former militant leader added that Wike has made many enemies, who are willing to stab him behind his back because of his actions towards them.
