The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has defiled his party stand to rejoice with President Muhammadu Buhari on his victory at the tribunal.
Atiku and Peoples Democratic Party have decided to appeal the ruling that gave victory to the president.
With the congratulatory message by Wike to Buhari, he has crossed the party line and thereby abandon Atiku and his party.
Governor Wike said he declared his message of solidarity with the President publicly because “it came from the heart”.
He said his open congratulation message was more sincere than those of his colleagues, ostensibly in the PDP, who paid nocturnal visits to the president over the same issue.
