Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has lambasted the Uche Secondus-led National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking in an interview with Channels Television, the Rivers Governor accused the NWC of sowing seed of discord among PDP governors.
Governor Wike stated that the leadership of the party is not working towards reclaiming power from the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2023.
He stated that Secondus and the NWC were only interested in remaining in power and clinching the presidency in 2023.
Wike said the PDP “ought to have harvested from the inefficiency of the APC; from the maladministration of the APC.”
Wike who vowed not to leave the PDP, stated that he will never allow anybody kill the former ruling party.
He said the current leadership of NWC is not ready for the tasks ahead but are busy constituting problems and sowing seeds of discord among governors for their own selfish interest.
“If you ask me currently as it is, is the leadership of the party willing for us to harvest this opportunity for a change, I will say no,” the Rivers governor said.
“An opposition party that ought to be united, to work, to take over the affairs of government, because people are waiting for this opportunity, but the current leadership of NWC is not prepared for that, rather, what they have done is to constitute some people to sow a seed of discord among governors for their own selfish interest. And that will boomerang; that will consume them.
“I will not allow anybody to kill PDP. They have the capacity to move to APC. I don’t and I cannot move to APC. So, anybody that tries to do something to destroy PDP, I will not allow you. Anybody that I see that has the trait to destroy the PDP, I will not allow.”
