Wike, who seemed unhappy with the ways and manners his colleagues dumped the party, described them as unfaithful human beings that lack conscience.
The Governor of Rivers State and a core member of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has fired a salvo at his colleagues defecting from their party to ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, saying they are hopeless, shameless human beings that cannot be trusted.
Wike, who seemed unhappy with the way and manner his colleagues dumped the party they are working great to restored to power at the federal level come 2023, described those governors as unfaithful human beings that lack conscience.
The indefatigable Wike disclosed this two days after an aide of the Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle announced that his boss, the national and state assembly members, and all the PDP executives from all levels of the state will dump PDP for the ruling APC.
Recall that in May, Governor of Cross River, Dr Been Ayade also defected from PDP to join the ruling party.
Governor Wike while speaking during the inauguration of a road in Port Harcourt, the state capital on Tuesday, said it is pious of the ruling party to portray PDP as Bad and corrupt party and yet turn around to lure its member to join their party.
In his words:
“People who could not win an ordinary election. The party used technicality and went to court and got a victory. Now, they say they are leaving the party. Hopeless, shameless human beings. People who have no conscience.”
Wike now declared that he will remain in his beloved party no matter what APC bring against him and he also assured that his people in the state will also remain in PDP even if it will be only them in the country.
“Bring everything you have against me, I will not join you. Rivers state will not join you. Even if it is only Rivers state in this country, we will continue to be Peoples Democratic Party,” he added.
The Rivers State governor also accused the federal government of blackmailing some PDP governors and members to join the ruling party in order to avoid being arrested for the offence they did not commit.
