The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has disowned a rumored lawsuit that he allegedly filed against Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

This is coming after some media reports falsely hitting that Wike had ordered the removal of PDP flags from the Rivers State government house.

The governor refuted that he does not know anything concerning the purported lawsuit or even knowing the attorneys who initially filed it in an exclusive interview with THISDAY.

“I have no knowledge of the alleged litigation. I didn’t ask anyone to bring a lawsuit on my behalf.”

As revealed in the alleged suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/782/2022, the plaintiffs were said to have hinged their claims on the grounds that the PDP primary conferred undue advantage on Atiku which aided his emergence as candidate of the PDP in the May 28 and 29 primary.

While reacting to the publication, Wike wholly disowned the suit said to have been filed at the Federal High Court, Abuja. He described the lawsuit as the handiwork of mischief makers who merely want to use him to score cheap political goals.

He emphasized, “I don’t know the lawyers”. “Am I a kid to be filing a suit at this time. I had 14 days after the primary within which to have filed any suit. I didn’t do that then, is it two months after primary I will file a suit?

In response to another rumour, he said, “Just yesterday they came up with the claim that I ordered my Chief Security Officer to pull down PDP flag in Government House. This is all false, it’s all propaganda. Some people are trying to use me to win the election. Please disregard all these lies.”
