I Won’t Leave PDP, I Will Fight To The Finish ― Wike Talks Tough

Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has vowed not to defect from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) under any circumstances or at the request of anyone.

The governor declared that he was more concerned with maintaining the party’s sanity and that he would continue to strive for the establishment of harmony, inclusivity, equity, and peace inside the PDP.

The announcement was made by the Governor on Thursday at the Rivers State PDP stakeholders meeting at Government House in Port Harcourt.

Wike declared; “One thing I have always told people is, if anybody is thinking, doing anything to think that we will leave PDP, foul. We will do the fight in the party. We are not like them when in 2014 they walked out of Eagle Square. They’ve forgotten. They walked out and joined APC. Is it not correct?

He stressed that zone-based elections and party offices must be recognized because the party constitution makes this explicit.

The Governor questioned why Senator Iyorchia Ayu, the PDP national chairman, is abstaining from doing what is right while the former PDP BOT chairman was pressured to leave.

“You have taken presidential candidate, you have taken party chairman, you have also taken the DG (director-general) of the campaign. We are talking about party politics. Decisions are made by the presidential candidate, chairman of the party and the D.G of the campaign.

“They are telling you they told the chairman of the BOT to resign. So, you know there is a problem. You said he should go and resign. You can put pressure on him to resign when his tenure hasn’t come to an end. But you cannot put pressure on the chairman to resign. You think at our level you will deceive us. You’ll tell us stories,” Wike told Atiku and his team.
