The governor claimed responsibility for announcing Senator George Thompson Sekibo’s victory in Rivers East and Senator Betty Apiafi’s win in Rivers West.

Wike lamented that the same people are now in Abuja planning against him, claiming they won’t succeed since God has blessed him, despite the danger incurred to deliver them.

Despite the pressure from some politicians and attempts to split the State House of Assembly, the governor of Rivers State said he never guaranteed anyone a governorship ticket of the PDP.

Moreover, he claimed that he had a respectable showing at the PDP primary, even if he ultimately fell short of winning the party’s nomination for president.

The governor has stated that the Rivers State PDP campaign team will be introduced the following week, with the campaign strategy being tailored to the specifics of each municipality.

Wike stressed that the people of Rivers are pleased with the performance of his administration and will vote for all PDP candidates in the State.

“We will do the fight in the party. We are not like them when in 2014 they walked out of Eagle Square. They’ve forgotten. They walked out and joined APC. Is it not correct?

“Did they remain to fight inside the party? But we remained, they ran away. Now, there is a fight in the party, we will not run.

“We will fight it at this party. Those who run away from the fight are weak people. We will not. So everybody should know this is the state where we are. So that nobody tells you all kinds of stories.”

The governor insists that the constitution of the party clearly states that elective and party offices must be zoned which should be respected.

Wike wondered why the former PDP BoT chairman will be pressurised to resign and the PDP National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, is excusing himself from keeping to doing what is right.

He said, “You have taken presidential candidate, you have taken party chairman, you have also taken the D.G (director general) of the campaign. We are talking about party politics. Decisions are made by the presidential candidate, chairman of the party and the D.G of the campaign.

“They are telling you they told the chairman of the BOT to resign. So you know there is a problem. You said he should go and resign.

“You can put pressure on him to resign when his tenure hasn’t come to an end. But you cannot put pressure on the chairman to resign. You think at our level you will deceive us. You’ll tell us stories.”

Wike recalled how in 2015 the Federal Government used the military to invade Rivers State, interfered with and even annulled elections, but were resisted.
