Senator Orji Kalu has hailed People's Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Nyesom Wike.



The Senate Chief Whip declared that “Wike is the winner of the game for defying all odds to come second."

In a Facebook post, Kalu said though he’s a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Wike deserved accolades.

The former Abia Governor commended the “performance, tenacity and courage” of the Rivers helmsman.

“He lost, but he fought gallantly." I congratulate and commend his doggedness in the just concluded PDP presidential primaries, "he added.

Wike lost the PDP 2023 ticket to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

On Monday, Atiku visited him and other contestants, including Bukola Saraki and Anyim Pius Anyim, in Abuja.

The party chieftains were said to have agreed to work together to retake power from the APC.

The ruling party will conduct its presidential primary this weekend.

At the PDP primary, Atiku polled 371 votes; Wike, 237; former Senate President Saraki, 70; votes; Akwa Ibom Governor Emmanuel Udom, 38.
