PDP Crisis: Wike announces decision on defection calls

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has announced his resolve to remain in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The governor made the position known on Thursday amid calls for him to dump the party over the lingering crisis.

Wike spoke during a meeting of PDP stakeholders in the state at the Government House, Port Harcourt.

“We will do the fight at 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.

The Rivers helmsman said those who run away from the fight are weak people and that he would not do so.

The governor noted that the constitution of the party clearly states that elective and party offices must be zoned.

“You have taken the presidential candidate, you have taken party chairman, you have also taken the DG of the campaign. We are talking about party politics.”

Wike said decisions are made by the presidential candidate, party chairman and the DG of the campaign.

“You can put pressure on the BoT chairman to resign when his tenure hasn’t come to an end. But you cannot put pressure on the chairman to resign”, he added.
