Edo 2020: Gov Wike Pull Out, Left Obaseki At The Mid of his ambition for his re-election.
The Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike pulls out of Edo PDP reconciliation, says some members of PDP NWC are tax collectors.
Recall that Gov Nyesom Wike played a major role in the welcoming of Edo State Governor to the People’s Democratic Party with a waiver to contest.
Governor Nyesom Wike pulled out of the reconciliation efforts of the Edo State Chapter of the People’s Democratic Party(PDP).
Which seems like bringing someone out for a mission and leaving the person in the middle of the mission alone.
DEZ MAYORZ gathered that Wike resigned because he believes that some members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP are sycophants and tax collectors who will never tell the truth.
He accused them of insincerity and trying to blackmail him on media instead of the NWC to carry everybody along in Edo state.
“I told them that in Edo State, we must handle the issue carefully and carry everybody along. They must respect human beings and not behave like tax collectors.
“They said because an order was obtained from a Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, then I am responsible.
“I have had sleepless nights to resolve the issue in Edo state. The Governors of Edo, Adamawa, and Delta states, know what I have done to resolve the issues in Edo state.
“As a result of this senseless accusation, I have pulled out of Edo State settlement. My integrity matters. I have also directed my lawyer to write ThisDay Newspaper on the publication they made against me in their Tuesday,23rd June, 2020 edition.
“I know the members of the National Working Committee of PDP who connived with ThisDay. They are tax collectors. Let them challenge me and I will come out with more facts.
“Nobody will rubbish me by raising false accusations against me. I will fight back”, he stated.
Governor Wike pulls out in any reconciliation and wondered why the NWC now wants to consult Governors of the party.
He questioned why the NWC did not consult with Governors in the case of Bayelsa State.
The governor warned that if PDP is not careful, the crisis in the All Progressive Congress (APC) would be a child’s play.
“I am brought up not to accept injustice, and that is why I keep speaking out on national issues. Nobody in PDP can intimidate Rivers State.
“Nobody can threaten me because I said things must be done constitutionally. I will always continue to satisfy my conscience.
“From now on, I want to concentrate on the development of Rivers State”, he added.
