Contrary to certain predictions, Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike believes he and his supporters in Rivers State will not defect from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), but rather stay to continue the battle for internal democracy.
This was said by Governor Wike on Thursday at a meeting with party members from all 319 wards in the state held in the Banquet Hall of the Government House in Port Harcourt.
He asserted that backing down from a battle is a show of weakness. The purpose of the meeting was to update the party leaders on recent events within the organisation and inform them of the governor’s intention to address the media tomorrow morning at 10 am about the PDP’s standing across the nation.
Wike stated that the purpose of the scheduled media discussion is to disclose his version of events, which he insisted is the truth, and expose the depravity of some individuals who take joy in being national leaders.
He claims that following the discussion, Nigerians would decide whether or not these individuals are still deserving of the applause they receive.
Governor Wike questioned why the PDP, which pledges to unite Nigeria, is unable to do so in it’s own capacity for itself.
The party would maintain control of all elective seats in the state, according to Governor Wike, despite the internal crises at the federal level and a pocket of hostility by certain unappreciative PDP members in Rivers State.
All three senatorial seats, 13 seats in the House of Representatives, 32 seats in state Houses of Assembly, 23 chairmanships of councils, and 319 councilorships are now held by the PDP.
Former minister Wike bragged of being far ahead of his critics, claiming he learns about every strategy before it is put into action.
Additionally, he cautioned party members in the state against serving as spies because the party there will not use any loopholes in its electoral campaign for 2023.
Ambassador Desmond Akawor, the chairman of the PDP in Rivers State, says party members in the State are devoted to supporting Governor Wike’s political ideas and will follow his directions regarding the next course of action prior to the elections.
Former Nigerian ambassador to South Korea, Akawor, claims the party is happy with the manner Governor Wike has been managing the state in terms of both politics and administration.
