Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has been to Abuja for the first time since losing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential primary that was held on May 28.

However, Wike said his coming to Abuja reminded him of his defeat. He was invited to a book launch in Nigeria’s capital. The book was authored by retired Justice Abdu Aboki and unveiled by the governor.

After congratulating Justice Aboki, Wike then went on to say the book-launcher did not “do well”. He then explained, “But why I said My Lord did not do well is because if he had held this in Lagos or Kano, I would have been happy.

“When I landed and then passed through the venue. I said I think My Lord intentionally wanted me to remember 28 and 29 of May of what happened.

“Well, but life continues,” he said giving an indication of his feelings about his political loss.
