Lamido, 16 Other PDP Guber Candidates Visit Wike In Rivers
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, received at least seventeen Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidates at his private residence in Port Harcourt today, Naija News understands.
Leading the politicians to meet the PDP chieftain is the party’s governorship flag-bearer in Jigawa State, Mustapha Sule Lamido.
In the list also is the party’s governorship candidate in Kaduna State, Isa Ashiru and his Katsina State counterpart, Yakubu Lado Danmarke, among others.
The agenda of the meeting currently underway is yet to be made public. This, however, could be connected to the crisis rocking the party a few months ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Those Who Destroyed PDP Are Calling Us Boys
Wike on Tuesday claimed that the people who left PDP destroyed the party. According to him, the same people who destroyed the party are the ones calling him and his allies boys.
Recall that the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu had described the people calling for his resignation from office as children.
Ayu further stated that he would not allow the people to destroy the party ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The camp of Governor Wike, which includes the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, and Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu have been calling for Ayu’s resignation.
Wike, however, thinks the people calling him and his allies children are responsible for the destruction of the main opposition party.
The Rivers State Governor noted that the boys stayed behind and kept the party working when others left.
He charged the people of Rivers State not to be intimidated by anybody as the election season draws closer.
The PDP Governor said he pity any Rivers man going to pick crumbs from the table.
