Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has dared the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to suspend him if they can, stating that it is not possible.
Newsonline reports that Wike alleged that the national chairman of the party, Ayu Iyorchia, is responsible for the crisis ravaging the party by not honouring his word of resigning as the party’s leader.
The Rivers state governor added that power was responsible for the refusal of Ayu to give up his position as he promised he would at the Abuja house of Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed before the presidential primary of the party.
Governor Wike stated this on Friday (today) in Portharcourt while speaking in a media chat with some selected media houses.
Wike said, “I dare them to do it. They know what I can do. A child who says his father will not sleep, will also not sleep.”
He further stated, “If you are an asset people will come to you. Who is a pretty girl that people don’t want to talk to?”
Wike added that Ayu does not love the party but was interested in the position that they shared if the presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar wins the 2023 election.
“If Ayu says he loves this party so much and wants it to win elections, he should keep his word and leave.
“I heard if the PDP wins the election, the national chairman wants to be Secretary of the Government of the Federation. Somebody else wants to be Senate President.
“They have shared positions. They pressured the BoT chairman to resign. Why didn’t they pressure the national chairman to resign?”
Wike continued, “The problem is that we have not won elections and we are too arrogant. All they know is name-calling. Wike did this, Wike camp did that. Why not address the issues?
“They are saying we can do without Wike. Some of those supporting Atiku are his enemies. Some of them are from Edo.”
