The Special Assistant on Public Communication to the 2023 Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, Phrank Shaibu, has alleged that President Bola Tinubu is planning to reward the former Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike with a ministerial appointment.
Shaibu, while disclosing this in s statement he signed, Shaibu noted that the ministerial appointment was to appreciate Wike for rigging the presidential election in Rivers State to favour Tinubu, arguing that the results in states like Rivers was an indication that the last presidential election was rigged.
He said it was tragic that Tinubu was planning on rewarding Wike with a ministerial portfolio despite the pending petition against the former Governor which has attracted nearly 300,000 votes.
The statement read, “The Presidential election in Rivers State was clearly rigged as evidenced by what INEC has uploaded on IREV.
“So far, nearly 300,000 Nigerians have signed a petition on change.org demanding visa bans against Governor Wike.
“Tinubu is now on the verge of appointing Wike as a minister as a reward for that disgraceful election.
“What a shame. And this is the character who claimed to have fought for the actualisation of June 12?”
