Gov. Wike Rejects PDP Peace Move With Governor Dickson




Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has rejected the peace move by the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party to intervene in the crisis with the governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson, over the Soku Oil Wells/fields returned to Rivers State by the Federal High Court.

The Rivers State governor in a statement through his Special Assistant on Electronic Media, Simeon Nwakaudu, stated that there was no need for the party to intervene in the issue since the court had ruled on the matter.

He said: “I don’t know why they are interceding. They have no power to resolve the issue of Oil Wells. Secondly, the matter has been determined by a court of competent jurisdiction.”

“Anybody who is not satisfied should go on Appeal. Are they interceding on behalf of someone who betrayed the party?”

“They know that Governor Dickson betrayed and sold out the party. They know that during the 2019 election in Rivers State, what happened in the state. That Dickson worked with my opponent.”

“Throughout that period, the National Chairman himself knows, that people were calling from all over the country to know the situation. Dickson never called one day.”

“This was because of his alignment with the opposition . I can show proof that Dickson had already made up his mind to go over to APC.”

“I am not going to sit down with anybody to discuss anything as it relates to Governor Dickson. I have no business with Governor Dickson.”

Governor Wike called on the outgoing governor of Bayelsa State to resign from PDP and allow the party leaders in the state to rebuild the party.

“In fact, Governor Dickson ought to have resigned from the party by now. So that the leaders of PDP in Bayelsa would rebuild the party.”

“The National Leadership of the party should know that the only option left for PDP to be strong in Bayelsa is for Dickson to leave the party,” he said.

He said: “Where was the party when Dickson sold out? Why couldn’t they come out to speak out? Governor Dickson, you have killed our party in that State. What is anyone wading in for? I am not going to be party to that and nobody will stop me .”

“Nobody fights Rivers State and gets any benefits out of it . I have said it severally. I am not here because of my interest. I am here because of the interest of Rivers State.”

“The party would have waded in when they saw fraud. That Dickson was killing the party in Bayelsa State. He has achieved his aim by making sure nobody comes after him as he leaves office in February, 2020.”

“Do you know the effect of APC winning Bayelsa State? And they are talking of wading in.”
