Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, commented on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)'s internal divisions on Monday, saying that while "nothing has happened yet," "something will happen" shortly.
Nobody can threaten the PDP presidential candidate, he claims, since he will always act morally regardless of intimidation or blackmail.
He said as Eneka Internal Roads was flagged off in the state's Obio-Akpor region.
"Anyone who knows me knows that once I have made up my decision and I believe that what I am doing is right, if you like, let the whole people team up, as much as my conscience is clear, I will always do what is right," Wike said.
“All of us should be calm; you’ve heard what is happening in PDP. Nothing has happened yet but by the grace of God; something will happen.”
Wike has been said to be disgruntled after former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar won the PDP presidential election in May. The Rivers governor was also said to be slighted with the selection of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as Atiku’s running mate.
Amid the crisis rocking the main opposition party, Wike met with Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi; and his All Progressives Congress (APC) counterpart, Bola Tinubu. Wike also held meetings with former president Olusegun Obasanjo as well as APC presidential aspirant and governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi.
Channels Television had reported that Wike on Friday said the ongoing consultation is in the interest of Nigerians.
The governor who spoke at the VIP Lounge of the Port Harcourt International Airport following his arrival in the country from London had said, “We believe that what is going on will be in the interest of Nigerians at the end of the day. Consultation is still ongoing. Nothing we have said now has been concretised. Discussions are going on.”
