Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has criticized the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, over their complaint over the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) February 25 election results (INEC).
Atiku and the PDP’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, accompanied other party leaders in a protest over suspected irregularities in the presidential election.

Information According to reports in Nigeria, the party flatly rejected the results of the election, which saw the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu emerge as the president-elect.

Wike, in a speech to his constituents, criticized his party, saying it had devolved into a “Labour Union,” adding that he was drinking a 40-year-old whisky while Atiku led demonstrators.

Protests were delivered to the INEC headquarters.

He however described to them as a “students’ union” singing “aluta continua”.

“What we have is more than what they have,” the governor remarked in a combination of English and Pidgin.

“While they were protesting, I just sat down and I took one 40-year-old whiskey. ‘O guy, sit down,’ I said to some of my friends. Make una sit for 40 years.

“So I turned on the television to watch the marching” (Mimics). They’ve become a labor union, a student union, ‘all we’re saying…’ chai. What are you saying? What exactly are you saying?

“Aluta continues, that you have taken over the role of students’ union. That is what the party has devolved into.
