“Rivers is PDP. The governorship and national assembly members are PDP. Ayu lost his polling unit. I won three senatorial seats, 32 house of Assembly seats. He didn’t get anything.
“Jigawa did not win presidential election. Babangida Aliyu did not win. So who is the betrayer? We won to make sure PDP exist. Of what relevance is he as national chairman? He couldn’t deliver his polling unit."

The Rivers governor further reiterated that all he has ever wanted was for fairness and equity to reign supreme in the party.

He referred to the zoning of the national leadership as an unfair treatment of other regions. Governor Wike also said he would never leave the PDP as he remains a committed party member.
