The Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has sent a strong warning to the Peoples Democratic Party’s National Working Committee (NWC) against sowing a seed of discord among the PDP governors.
Wike insisted that if they do that, the Uche-Secondus-led National Working Committee will jeopardize the party’s prospect to clinch the presidency in 2023.
He said the present PDP-NWC is only interested in remaining in power and not working towards reclaiming power in 2023 from the APC.
“PDP ought to have harvested from the inefficiency of the APC; from the maladministration of the APC,” Wike was quoted by Channels Television.
Wike vowed never to allow anyone to kill the PDP, stating that while others can easily defect to APC, he doesn’t have the capacity to do that.
The Governor lamented that the current leadership of the NWC is not prepared to tackle the task ahead but busy planting discord among the PDP governors because of their selfish interest.
“If you ask me currently as it is, is the leadership of the party willing for us to harvest this opportunity for a change, I will say no.
“An opposition party that ought to be united, to work, to take over the affairs of government, because people are waiting for this opportunity, but the current leadership of NWC is not prepared for that, rather, what they have done is to constitute some people to sow a seed of discord among governors for their own selfish interest. And that will boomerang; that will consume them.
“I will not allow anybody to kill PDP. They have the capacity to move to APC. I don’t, and I cannot move to APC. So, anybody that tries to do something to destroy PDP, I will not allow you. Anybody that I see that has the trait to destroy the PDP, I will not allow.”
Governor Wike has recently been meeting with leaders of regional and ethnic groups in the State, with the latest meeting in Port Harcourt with the Chairman of Northern Elders Forum, NEF, Prof. Ango Abdullahi.
