- Governor Nyesom Wike has completely disengaged himself from the PDP reconciliation saga
- Wike said that he will no more participate in any such issue
- The governor made it clear that he will spend his remaining time in office on development of the state
After pulling out from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) reconciliatory meeting in Edo state, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers has revealed his next move.
Governor Wike said that he will no longer participate in any reconciliation and wondered why the National Working Committee (NWC) needs the consent of governors who are on the platform of the party on the issue.
Moreover, Wike said that he was not one to accept injustice, adding that this is "why I keep speaking out on national issues. Nobody in PDP can intimidate Rivers state."
On his Twitter page on Tuesday, June 23, the Rivers governor said that henceforth he will concentrate on the development of his state.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Wike had disengaged himself from a reconciliation meeting organised by the PDP in Edo ahead of the gubernatorial election.
The aggrieved governor on Tuesday, June 23, alleged that there are some persons in the PDP's National Working Committee (NWC) who were bent on bringing his name to disrepute.
Wike warned the NWC to guard against taking any step that will bring about the disintegration of the party.
Meanwhile, Governor Godwin Obaseki who was recently disqualified from participating in the All Progressives Congress (APC) primaries in Edo state on June 14, visited Wike. Wike who received the embattled governor at the Rivers State Government House, Port Harcourt disclosed this in a tweet.
Though sources say they had no knowledge of the details of the meeting, they believe it is connected to the political survival of the governor.
Obaseki had been in disagreement with his former political godfather, Adams Oshiomhole who is also the national chairman of the APC, for some time now and this has technically culminated to his recent disqualification.
On Friday, June 12, Obaseki's hope of mounting the stool of power again was dashed as the APC disqualified him from participating in the party's primary which held on Monday, June 22.
