On The PDP Turmoil, Wike Predicts That Something Would Happen Shortly
The governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, claims that the PDP’s internal conflict will be resolved shortly (PDP).
On Monday, Wike addressed the crowd as construction in the state’s Obio-Akpor region was flagged off.
Since the conclusion of its May presidential primary election, the opposition party has been mired in controversy.
“Anyone who knows me knows that once I have made up my mind and I believe that what I am doing is right, if you like, let the whole people team up, as far as my conscience is clear, I will do what is right at all times; it doesn’t matter any gang up,” the governor of Rivers said while speaking at the event.
I don’t even give a damn if you go out and buy newspaper owners and post any story you want on the front pages. Tell lies about me if you want to demonize me. You are concerned, but I am not. I’ll act morally upright.
“People are crying, and I have done nothing. What will happen if we take a certain action?
“Every time I deliver the newspaper, people tell me that Wike did this or that. I’ll chuckle. Make them feel uneasy. Make them experience insomnia. What needs to be done will be done when the time is right. No one will intimidate me.
“We should all be calm. You are aware of what is going on in PDP. By God’s grace, something will happen even though nothing has yet.
The governor continued by saying that effective leadership and creating a happy populace are more important than party affiliation.
“Some other people are busily organizing themselves to maintain their position of power in Nigeria and plunder the one that these other people have retained. If you are aware of what is happening in Nigeria, ignore the people frantically trying to save or rescue you and pay attention to what happens instead, the speaker advised.
I have the privilege of knowing them, and I will reveal their identities when it is right.
TheCable had previously reported on how Wike, who left the country on Monday with his colleagues, met with Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for president, in Paris, France.
The Rivers governor also met with former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi, and Peoples Democratic presidential contender Atiku Abubakar in London, United Kingdom (UK).
Wike stated that the talks with the presidential aspirants are “in the interest of Nigeria” after his return to Nigeria.
