Wike fumes, reveals what will happen if PDP expels him

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has read the riot act to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over the party’s purported threat to expel.

Speaking while flagging off a new road in Rivers State on Friday, Wike said his expulsion from the PDP will mark the end of party.

Wike recounted what transpired between ex president, Olusegun Obasanjo, and his vice, Atiku Abubakar, while the former was seeking re-election in 2023.

He noted that that despite being Atiku’s principal, Obasanjo kowtowed to Atiku and met his condition in order to actualise his second term bid.

He said: “In 2003 when President Olusegun Obasanjo wanted to run for a second tenure―a whole president wanted to run for a second tenure―he knelt down before his vice and said, ‘my vice, please, allow me to run.’

“You know one of the conditions he gave him? That Tony Anenih must be sacked as the Minister of Works and that Tony Anenih must not be in the presidential campaign council. Obasanjo obliged and sacked Tony Anenih as the Minister of Works and removed him from the presidential campaign council. This is a president,[and] his own vice giving him condition; a retired General knelt down and was given conditions”

Wike said the aggrieved governors are not making the same demand as Atiku did in 2003 but are only asking that the party’s constitution be respected.

“We (G5) are not even doing that; we are not saying sack this one; we are only saying that the constitution of our party must be respected based on what the national chairman said and based on what you told me in my house.”

The governor then dared the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to expel him from the party, saying “try and see how you will survive it.”
