The Presidential Candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has advised Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike to stop speaking while he is under the influence of alcohol.
Wike had while addressing supporters at the Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State on Friday stated that he was drinking a 40-year-old whiskey while he was watching members of his own party on TV protesting against the February 25 Presidential election in Abuja.
“As they were protesting, I just sat down and took a 40-year whisky. I called some of my friends and opened the 40-year-old whisky as they were protesting,” Wike had said.
In a statement on Sunday, however, Atiku’s Special Assistant on Public Communication, Mr. Phrank Shaibu, advised Wike to stay off alcohol as it had not only “affected his voice and demeanour but also his thinking faculty”.
Shaibu said Wike’s vituperations and wailings had nothing to do with ensuring that the south produced the next president.
He argued that Wike was just a sore loser who had gone on to deceive other members of his G5 who are now battling for political survival.
