Mogho Town, Rivers state - Governor Nyesom Wike has said the alleged plot within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to punish him would make the party lose the 2023 presidential election.
Wike who spoke at the Rivers PDP campaign rally on Wednesday, January 25, in Mogho Town, Gokana local government area said the party was plotting to punish him for insisting on equity and fairness, Vanguard reported.
The Rivers state governor said his insistence on equity, fairness and justice to be practised within the party has become a political crime for which the camp of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, allegedly gears to "deal with him" when they win.

“Most of you have watched on YouTube where they said they will deal with me when they win. You can’t win.
“You’ve not won, you are threatening to deal with some people. Will God allow you? All of them planning and saying they will deal with us, they’ve not been born. I dare them, let them try it," Wike said.
