Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has scolded media expert and spokesman for the Peoples Democratic Party PDP Campaign Council, Dele Momodu, calling him jobless for allegedly warning him (Wike) and allies not to cross the line over the party crisis.
Wike accused Dele Momodu of being used and chided the former presidential aspirant under the umbrella of the PDP that he couldn’t score a single vote from his state delegates during the opposition party’s presidential primary elections.
In his words:
“I have also read one Dele Momodu say we shouldn’t cross the line. When did he come into PDP? He came in two weeks to the presidential primary. He is from Edo state, not one vote, even from his own state in the primary.
“When you are desperate to be recognised, that is when a presidential aspirant turns a spokesperson. Somebody who wants to rule Nigeria has become the spokesman to a presidential candidate.
“Everyone knows how many times Dele Momodu has been to Port Harcourt, from one project inauguration to the other. I’m not going to be a party to anybody wanting to use me to be relevant. If you don’t have any job, say you don’t have a job. I have a job.
“You must have heard what the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde just said. So this idea of people bragging that they can do without five state governors which they know, not the ones they don’t know, we will see how far they go.
“Luckily for me, I’ve never left this party one day. Never. But for some of them, it’s just to jump around. Like Osita Chidoka, who didn’t get Anambra PDP guber ticket, left and ran for another party.
“I will remain in the party and fight for our rights. I’m not looking for a job, not looking to be a minister. Most of them are con men. If they say I’m not relevant, we will show who is relevant during and after the elections.”
