Governor Nyesom Wike has given his go-ahead on the use of the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium for the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential campaign.
The incumbent governor initially refused to grant Atiku Abubakar permission to hold his presidential rally in Rivers State due to the rift within the party.
However, it is understood that Wike has now granted Atiku and his campaign team access to the stadium with a few weeks to the 2023 polls, Daily Trust reports.
During the PDP rally at Ogu town in Ogu-bolo local government, Wike said he had accepted the presidential campaign should go on February 11, 2023.
Wike said: “This morning after an appeal from people who talked to me, I gave them back Adokiye Amiesimaka.
“Go and campaign. Let it not be that because they didn’t campaign that is why they didn’t win in Rivers State.”
