We are not leaving pdp– Wike


The Governor said they would remain in the party to fight for its preservation and enthronement of unity, inclusivity, equity and peace.

Wike also vowed to use his media chat on Friday to expose ill characters in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) priding themselves as national leaders.

He said after the chat, it would be left for Nigerians to decide if such people were still worthy of the ovation being accorded to them.

Wike wondered how the PDP, which could not unite the party was promising to unify Nigeria.

The Governor spoke on Thursday during a meeting with stakeholders of the party across the 319 wards of the state at the Banquet Hall of the Government House in Port Harcourt.

He said he remained a man of character unlike persons, who could not keep their words and walked out of the party at the Eagle Square in Abuja in 2014.

In 2014, Atiku was among the party leaders that abandoned the PDP for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Wike said: “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 forgot. They walked out and joined APC. Is it not correct?

“ 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 fight 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.”

The Governor insisted that the Constitution of the party clearly stated that elective and party offices must be zoned and that it should be respected.

Wike wondered why the former PDP BoT chairman would be pressurised to resign while the PDP National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, was excusing himself from doing the right things.

He said: “You have taken presidential candidate, you have taken party chairman, you have also taken the D.G (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.
