The APC said that the governor of the south-south state dictates what happen in the party through his role as a party’s defacto National Chairman, spokesperson and sole administrator.
This assertion is contained in a press statement released by Yekini Nabena, the National Publicity Secretary of APC.
He alleged that since Nigerians rejected the PDP which ruled the nation for 16 years, it had become obvious that there was nothing democratic about PDP’s policies and practices.
“As events has shown, it is a misnomer to call the party, Peoples Democratic Party as there is nothing democratic about its policies and practices.
“The PDP to all intents and purposes has become the theatre of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike. Since assuming office after the disputed 2015 Rivers Governorship election, Wike has assumed the role of de facto PDP National Chairman, sole administrator, spokesman, organising secretary and BoT Chairman.
“Recall Governor Wike’s imposition of an erstwhile PDP National Chairman without a formal convention and the leaked telephone conversation of Governor Wike (allegedly) threatening to kill INEC officials he had paid to rig the rivers rerun election in favour of the PDP.” Nabena said.
According to the APC spokesman, the governor threatened to deal with PDP presidential aspirants, including the Senate President, Bukola Saraki if they fail to abide by his bidding.
