Governor Nyesom Wike
Kanunta, the brother of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has disclosed why Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State was defeated by Abubakar Atiku at the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, primary election.
He alleged that the IPOB and those killed during the massacre of Obigbo were responsible for Wike’s loss at the PDP primaries.
In a tweet, Kanunta dismissed claims that Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto betrayed Wike.
According to Kanunta: “Neither the North, nor Tambuwal betrayed #Wike. Nor was it any Southern disunity.
“It was KARMA that nailed him. The Karma of #Obigbo. The #IPOB was also a factor.
“Clue: Late Buhari won despite his open support for BokoHaram.”
During the PDP primaries in Abuja, Tambuwal had stepped down for the eventual winner, Atiku Abubakar.
Atiku emerged as PDP’s candidate after polling the highest number of votes.
Some Nigerians had accused Tambuwal of betraying Wike.
