Gov Nyesom Wike
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has acknowledged that regardless of the disaster within the Peoples Democratic Get together PDP, he’ll stay within the get together.
The governor acknowledged this throughout a gathering with PDP stakeholders in Rivers state on Thursday evening, September 22.
Governor Wike and his supporters have been calling for the resignation of the nationwide chairman of the get together, Iyiorcha Ayu.
They argue that for the reason that presidential candidate of the get together within the 2023 common election, Atiku Abubakar, is from the North, Ayu who can also be from the North can not stay the get together chairman, They insist that Ayu vacates his workplace for a Southerner.
On Tuesday, September 20, Governor Wike’s supporters withdrew their help for the presidential marketing campaign of Atiku Abubakar. In response, Atiku Abubakar mentioned he can not drive the nationwide chairman to resign.
Talking on Thursday, Wike mentioned that the latest developments wouldn’t make him go away the get together. He added that it’s unsuitable for the get together’s presidential candidate, nationwide chairman, and presidential marketing campaign DG to be from the identical area.
“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 from Eagle Square. They’ve forgotten. They walked out and joined APC. Is it not correct?’‘. Wike said
Did they remain to fight inside the party? But we remained; they ran away. Now, there is a fight in the party, we will not run. We will fight it in this party. Those who run away from fights are weak people. We will not. So, everybody should know this is the state where we are, so that nobody tells you all kind of stories.
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 DG 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.”he mentioned
