With just two weeks before the formal opening of Nigeria's presidential campaigns, the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is in disarray with the influential Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and his clique of governors, which is now threatening to undermine presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar. 

In recent weeks, Nigerians have almost on a daily basis been entertained by the sheer spectacle of Governor Wike’s frequent dancing on live television. Wike’s spontaneous body movements are often triggered by playful songs targeted at his political rivals. As the hype man sings his praises, Wike relishes the music seeping from the speakers.
