Governor Nyesom Wike has reportedly resigned as PDP campaign zonal coordinator, few weeks after he was appointed alongside other prominent leaders of the party and Senate President, Bukola Saraki, who was named the Director-General of the Atiku Presidential Campaign Council.
Recall that it was reported that apart from the Senate president, Ayo Fayose, Aminu Tambuwal, Ibrahim Dankwambo, Samuel Ortom, Nyesom Wike and Dave Umahi were named as zonal coordinators.
While Governor Aminu Tambuwal was named as the Zonal Coordinator for NorthWest, Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo was appointed Zonal Coordinator for North-East, Governor Samuel Ortom for North-Central, Governor Dave Umahi for South-East, Nyesom Wike for South-South and former Governor Ayodele Fayose as Zonal Coordinator for the SouthWest.
However a source close to the governor who spoke to Saturday Sun late Friday night, disclosed that Wike’s letter of resignation as Atiku’s campaign coordinator for the south south was ready and would be submitted today, Saturday.
It was gathered that Wike is not comfortable with the way things are going in the campaign, especially lack of consultations of appropriate party leaders before vital decisions and appointments are made. The source however said notwithstanding the resignation by the governor, he remains committed to the party and the 2019 campaigns.
