nyesom wike 3

The PDP in Rivers State has denied earlier reports that its candidate in the just concluded governorship election and the winner of the poll, Nyesom Wike is planning to defect to the rival APC.  PDP says such allegation is not only malicious but baseless.
In a statement signed on behalf of the state chairman of PDP, Felix Obuah by his Special Adviser on Media, Jerry Needam, the party said defecting from PDP to the APC can only be likened to preferring hell to paradise.
The party leader said that the last general elections have demonstrated that Rivers State is a PDP state and cannot be betrayed by the holder of its mandate to govern the state for the next four years.
He said the governor-elect has given all he has to ensure that PDP remains alive.
“Rather than do that, the governor-elect, Chief Wike will do all within his power and humanly possible to deliver on his electioneering promises to the people to ensure they are not disappointed and to strengthen their support and belief in the PDP”.
The PDP Boss enjoined such rumour peddlers and, or daydreamers of Wike’s defection to join hands with the PDP-led government in reshaping, restoring and rebuilding the State that has been badly damaged.
 “May I also use this opportunity to make it abundantly clear to our APC brother members that there is an ocean of difference between the PDP leadership as presently constituted in Rivers State and ably led by His Excellency, Chief Barr Nyesom Wike, State Governor-elect and the APC.
“We are not as feeble minded and unsteady in character as APC members and will never do what they have done that has only attracted to them an outcast image before the court of public opinion, as doing so will be foolhardy of us.
“We will remain steadfast and focused to our vision of new better Rivers State where the welfare of its people will be adequately taken care of, and opportunities created for growth and development of our abundant human capital in fairness to all and anchored on justice.
“We are also most willing to receive back into the PDP fold those APC members who have genuinely repented and wish to come back to help move our State forward,” Prince Obuah declared.
The State PDP chairman, Bro Felix Obuah assured Rivers people that their mandate freely given to the PDP and the Governor-elect, Chief Barr Nyesom is sacrosanct.
