“Whether the cock crows or not, the sun will rise” — Shaibu reacts to closure of PDP campaign office in Rivers

The Special Assistant on Public Communications for the Atiku-Okowa Campaign Organisation, Mr. Phrank Shaibu, has reacted to the campaign’s Port Harcourt office being closed.

He told Vanguard over the phone on Friday that the matter had been brought to the campaign’s attention.

Shaibu went philosophical as he said, “Let me say this: whether the cock crows or not, the sun will rise. Atiku Abubakar will be president by the special grace of God.”

Earlier, news reached Abuja that the PDP Presidential Campaign Office in GRA Port Harcourt had been sealed by the state government.

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike signed Executive Order 22 a few weeks ago, which prohibits the citing of campaign offices by political parties in residential areas without government approval.

Local reports indicated that the state chapter of the PDP PCC had applied for approval from the state government but had been kept in the dark about whether or not the approval had been granted.

Governor Wike and four of his fellow PDP governors, commonly referred to as the “G-5,” have been having a running battle with the party’s national leadership, insisting that the National Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, step aside as a pre-condition for their support for the party’s presidential candidate.
