Update on Alleged Wike Case Against Atiku

Nigeria 2023: Wike sues Atiku, Claims He “Won” PDP Presidential Primaries

Update on this post: Good People, I have received more info on the alleged Nyesom Wike (governor of Rivers State)  suit challenging Atiku’s ascension as the PDP presidential flagbearer for the 2023 election. Apparently Wike did not file the suit even though he was listed as a plaintiff! The case # is FHC/ABJ/CS/782/2022 filed at the Federal High Court. 

Plaintiff: Nyesom Wike, Newgent Ekamon

Responders:  PDP, INEC, Tambuwal (governor of Sokoto), Atiku

The original confusion was that because he was listed as a plaintiff that it must have originated directly from him. It does appear that he was listed as plaintiff even though he possibly did not originate it. That said, nothing in his denial invalidates the premise since the other plaintiff has not dropped the case. In other words, PDP, Atiku and others have to respond to avoid legal surprises! Yet, I would have expected that this suit is statute barred looking at the time between the primaries and the filing.
