Senator Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker, has assured Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike that Southern governors did not abandon him following the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Presidential candidate for the 2023 general election.

Sani, who served in the 8th National Assembly as a member of Kaduna Central, believes the Southern Governors only went beyond the primaries and chose a formidable candidate who could overcome northern sentiment, mobilize votes, and win the general elections.
