Wike Shuns Atiku’s Rep In Turkey [Details] + Update On Suit Seeking Tinubu’s Disqualification

Wike shuns Atiku’s emissary in Turkey
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Thursday in Turkey refused to grant audience to a former Minister of Police Affairs, Adamu Waziri, who was sent to speak with him by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, those familiar with the matter have told PREMIUM TIMES.

Atiku, our sources said, deployed Mr Waziri to meet Mr Wike, who is on holiday in the Eastern European country, after the governor rebuffed several attempts by the candidate to arrange a meeting between them.
Having got wind that Mr Wike was away in Turkey, aides said Atiku deployed the former minister who tracked the governor down to Hilton Conrad Hotel in Istanbul on Thursday.

Mr Wike, however, declined his request for the two of them to huddle to enable him deliver a message from Atiku.
Mr Waziri was said to have called several friends and some leaders of the PDP in Nigeria to help persuade Mr Wike to discuss with him, but the governor did not yield.

Contrary to the claim by Mr Waziri on Thursday that he met Mr Wike in Istanbul, aides of the governor insisted that Mr Wike did not grant an audience to the former minister.

Fresh Update Emerges about Suit Seeking Tinubu’s Disqualification ahead of 2023
The leadership of the Action Alliance (AA) has dissociated itself from a lawsuit filed against the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The national chairman of the party, Adekunle Omoaje, said in a statement that Upkai Ukairo and Kalu Agu, the two men who instituted the litigation, are not party members, according to a report by PM News.
The suit claimed that Tinubu forged the “University of Chicago certificate” he submitted in 1999 to aid his qualification for the 1999 governorship election in Lagos state.
The statement read in part: “It has come to the notice of the leadership of Action Alliance that a suit was purportedly filed on behalf of the party at the Federal High Court, Abuja against the All Progressive Congress and its presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. “The matter said to be filed and deposed to by one Upkai Ukairo and one Kalu Agu, has nothing to do with Action Alliance. “As a matter of fact, both Upkai Ukairo and Kalu Agu are alien to the party and its leadership. They most probably are effigies or at best imaginary personalities.
