Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike is head bent at the on crises in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and has that he will never leave the party the way some people left the Eagle Square in Abuja in 2014. Noting that he will stay in the party to fight the battle as he is never a weakling.
You will recalled that Governor Wike has demanded that the Chairman of the party to go back to the west since the leadership of the party has seeded the Presidential candidate of the party to the north instead of the South.
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. Saying after the chat, Nigerians will decide if some members of the party deserved to be respected and honour.
Wike wondered how the PDP, which could not unite the party was promising to unify Nigeria when its is finding it difficult to put his house in unity. Governor said earlier 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.
“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?”, Wike said.
“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.”

Wike wondered why the former PDP BoT chairman would be pressurized to resign while the PDP National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, was excusing himself from doing the right things. He insisted that the Constitution of the party clearly stated that elective and party offices must be zoned and that it should be respected.
“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”, He concluded.
It will be recalled that in 2014, Atiku was among the party leaders that abandoned the PDP for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
