Niger Delta Freedom Volunteer Force blames Governor Nyesom Wike for Atiku’s defeat


A group known as Niger Delta Freedom Volunteer Force (NDFVF), has blamed Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state for allegedly causing the defeat suffered by the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the just concluded presidential election.

They also congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari at his re-election in the poll and called on Alhaji Atiku and the PDP to accept the defeat as the sincere outcome of the exercise.

They stated these in a communiqué issued at the end of emergency meeting in Port Harcourt last weekend and traced the failure to the party in the just held Presidential polls to the party’s national convention held in Port Harcourt, the state capital, last year.

The document jointly signed by the President and the Secretary of the group, Harry Lawson and Preye Wilson respectively, alleged that Governor Wike hijacked the convention and installed an incompetent leader who could not deliver victory to the party in the Presidential election.

They congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari, on his victory and urged Atiku, the PDP and the entire South-South, to accept outcome of the February 23rd presidential election and work with the president to move Nigeria forward.
