I will stay and fight inside the party – Wike

The intra-party crisis of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) appears to be escalating as Nyesom Wike, Rivers State Governor has vowed to remain within the party and fight.

Reminding Atiku Abubakar, the PDP 2023 Presidential candidate and Governor Tambuwal of Sokoto State, Atiku’s Campaign DG, that they once dumped the PDP, Wike mocked, “We are not like them, when in 2014 they walked out from Eagle Square. They’ve forgotten. They walked out and joined APC. Is it not correct?”

“Did they remain to fight inside the party? But we remained; they ran away. Now, there is a fight in the party, we will not run. We will fight it in this party. Those who run away from fights are weak people. We will not,” Wike said.

Wike lost out to Atiku in their party’s primary election in May. He demands that Iyorchia Ayu, the PDP national chairman must resign.
