Cross River State PDP Gubernatorial Candidate’s Media Aide At It Again
The media aide to Sen Prof Sandy Onor, the governorship candidate of the People Democratic Party(PDP) Modlin Odu, has lashesd out at haters who are jubilating the failure of His Excellency, Governor of Rivers State Nyesom Wike at the just concluded PDP presidential primaries.
Dont forget Wike lost out the His Excellency Atiku Abubakar.
In her words, she said
Some people have now recovered their voices from the shock, after two days of deafening silence since the victory of Sen. Sandy Onor which they never imagined was a possibility having been blinded by parochial sentiments.
Laughing at Wike just to feel better about a very remarkable defeat of your preferred aspirants is like cutting off your nose to spite your face. The pain will always be on you unless you allow it go by accepting the unchangeable reality that election has been won and lost. When we consider strategy, wit, finances in Politics, we must also remember the God and grace factor. This way, we would learn to accept the outcome of any situation at all, even in our personal lives.
Wike was in the race to prove a point and he has done so. A newbie in the Presidential race, the indomitable, bold and roaring Lion of Niger Delta, pulled a total of 237 votes on his own against a 6th time Presidential aspirant like Atiku whom three other Presidential aspirants had to step down for, to win the ticket.
The PDP is not a disoriented party like the APC especially in this Ayu’s administration where there is no buying and selling of positions as it was in Secondus time. Wike stated rightly that “anyone who emerges, I will support”. A party man to the core. Atiku and Wike will both join resources to face the APC.
So, while you sit behind phone pads somewhere in Cross River to gloat, remember that in the 36 States of Nigeria, Wike either has people who emerged as Candidates for Governorship or for National Assembly seats in a free and fair contest. No presidential aspirant has this record. He is a king maker!. Shake off your hate and bitterness, overpower them and let’s work together for PDP in the interest of the State and Nigeria.
It will be recalled that the Senator representing the goid people of Cross River State Central in the national assembly clinched the tickek to become the the flag bearer of the party in the state come 2023 general elections.
It is not news that Wike was pivotal in the emergence of the Senator.
