JUST IN: Again, Wike dares PDP to sack him, G5

Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, on Saturday dared the Iyorchia Ayu-led National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to extend ‘the despotic tendencies’ to the G-5 governors and see if they could withstand the repercussion.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that members of the G5 are Wike, Samuel Ortom (Benue), Ifeanyi Ugwanyi (Enugu), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and Seyi Makinde (Oyo).

The five aggrieved governors are demanding the replacement of Ayu with a southerner to correct “regional imbalance” in the PDP since the party’s presidential flag-bearer, Atiku Abubakar, and Ayu are both northerners.

Wike’s threat on Saturday comes a day after the PDP announced the suspension of Fayose Oluwajomiloju, son of a former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose; Enugu Senator, Chimaroke Nnamani; among others.

Speaking at the campaign flag-off rally by the State PDP Campaign Council in Bori, Khana Local Government Area (LGA), stressed that the Ayu led NWC resort to tyranny will do more damage to the PDP as far as the 2023 general election is concerned.

“So, don’t think you can threaten people by saying so, so persons have been suspended. Rubbish! Completely rubbish.

“We are above that level that you think you can threaten anybody, intimidate anybody with whatever illegal decision you have taken,” Wike said.

The Rivers State governor dared Ayu and his cohorts to extend the ‘despotic tendencies’ to the G-5 governors and see if they could withstand the repercussion.

“So, we are waiting for you to announce my own and any other of my friend. Like I have said, when a man says you will not sleep, he too, will he sleep? Will Ayu sleep? Will those his cohorts sleep?

“So don’t worry, we have the capacity to pay back. We have the capacity to tell you that enough is enough.”
