PDP Crisis: Gov. Wike Promises To Expose The ‘Truth’



Governor, Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has promised to speak and reveal the “truth” about problems in the party very soon, Igbere TV reports.

Wike who has not spoken since he was overlooked by the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, almost two months ago has caused anxiety over his status in the party.

The anxiety has heightened over the weeks as he has allegedly refused to pick calls from Atiku and his camp or participate in the party’s activities.

The tough talking govenor had lost out to Atiku as the presidential candidate of the party in May and was overlooked as the party’s vice presidential candidate despite being overwhelmingly chosen by the 17-man committee set up by the party to help choose the VP candidate.

Atiku overruled the committee and settled for Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa.

This has divided the party with the pro-Wike camp insisting that Atiku must lead a delegation to the governor for settlement.

Alongside Wike are governors of Enugu, Abia, Oyo and Benue states as well as former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, all feeling aggrieved at the development and threatening to decamp.

Wike also has party supporters in Cross River, Edo, Anambra, Kano and many other states, all sympathetic to his cause.

Although Samuel Ortom, the Benue State Governor, said few days ago that they will not decamp, Wike’s latest promise to speak appears to be another move that may further polarise the party and widing the gulf.

In a tweet on Saturday evening, the governor said, “I will speak soon and Nigerians will know the truth of all that has transpired in the PDP in recent times.”
