Legit.ng had reported that the emergence of Honourable Ndudi Elumelu as the minority leader of the House of Representatives was causing a crisis in the Rivers state chapter of the PDP.
This was as Governor Nyesom Wike described the committee set up by the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the PDP to investigate the election of Elumelu as corrupt, adding that the minority leader's emergence is contrary to the wish of the people.
He said: “The committee set up by the PDP on the illegal emergence of Ndudi Elumelu is the most corrupt committee ever set up by the party."
Wike warned the PDP not to toy with the state, adding that the government is capable of fighting the opposition party to a standstill.
He added: "The Rivers state governor is not one of those governors that anyone can cajole. The Rivers state governor is not one of those governors that will kowtow to their illicit activities.”
