Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, has congratulated Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike on his 55th birthday.
Atiku prayed that good things would happen to Wike as he marks his 55th birthday.
He disclosed this in a tweet that accompanied Wike’s photograph.
As you turn 55 today, I pray that all lines fall in pleasant places for you. Enjoy your special day. -AA pic.twitter.com/c8FboHQ9ra— Atiku Abubakar (@atiku) December 13, 2022

Atiku and Wike have endured a troubled relationship since the governor lost his bid to emerge as PDP’s presidential candidate.
Wike, who has refused to support Atiku’s presidential ambition, demanded the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu. His rationale for this was that both the party’s presidential flagbearer and the national chairman cannot be from the same region of the country; the North.
The governor and his group, G-5 said the North can’t produce the party’s presidential candidate and national chairman.
About the G5 governors: Apart from Mr Wike, other governors who are members of the G5 are Samuel Ortom (Benue), Ifeanyi Ugwanyi (Enugu), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and Seyi Makinde (Oyo).
