Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that regardless of any intimidation by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, he will emerge Nigeria’s next president in 2023.

Edujandon.com had reported how the Rivers State government sealed off the campaign office of Atiku based on Executive Orders 21 and 22.

The office was said to have been shut for producing noisy political activities in residential areas without approval from the State government.

But reacting through his Special Assistant on Public Communications, Phrank Shaibu, Atiku said the action will not deter him.

“Let me say this, whether the cock crows or not, the sun will rise. Atiku Abubakar will be President by the Special grace of God,”Vangaurdquotes Shaibu as saying.

Over the past months, five PDP governors – Wike, Samuel Ortom of Benue, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, Seyi Makinde of Oyo, and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu – have been at the forefront of calls for lyorchia Ayu to resign as the party’s chairman.

The call for Ayu’s resignation, according to the PDP stakeholders, is that the party’s presidential candidate and national chairman cannot be from the same region.

However, Ayu has maintained that he will not resign. Amid the crisis, Wike and his allies pulled out of the PDP presidential campaign council.
