The publisher of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu, on Monday, spoke on the possibility of the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, dumping the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Momodu, while speaking on the crisis rocking the main opposition party, said the Rivers State Governor would not dump the party.
The former presidential aspirant described Wike as a very principled man, adding that defection to the All Progressives Congress might not profit Wike.
He claimed that Governor Wike is currently playing mind games, and has some demands he wants from the party.
Momodu, while speaking on Channels TV on Monday, said, “For me, governor Wike is a very principled man; if there’s one thing he has been consistent about, it is his love for PDP; I believe he will not leave PDP. He is playing a mind game and he’s good at it. What shall he profit him if he joins APC?
“The situation in PDP shows what Wike is in the equation of things in Nigeria. If you have a man who is your best governor across the board, across party lines, Wike stands out as a fantastic performer.
“Today, the fear of Wike is the beginning of wisdom in PDP, there is no question about that. Wike is smart, he knows the game he’s playing, and what he wants to do is to force a deal with the party. That’s my reading of the situation.
“He is a very smart politician. I’m sure eventually the party will reach an agreement with him.”
