Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Friday, alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, is jostling to be appointed Secretary to Government of the Federation if the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, wins the 2023 presidential election.
WIke made this allegation while speaking at a media chat in PortHarcourt, Rivers State, on Friday.
He said, “Some people have been given positions as we speak. Ayu wants to become the SFG. These are things happening in the party that we can’t say in public.”
The Rivers governor also boasted that nobody can suspend him from the PDP.
He said though no one was above the party, those who defected from the PDP at the height of its 2014/2015 crisis cannot suspend him.
WIke noted that the crisis in the PDP was more than what was being reported in the media, adding that for the sake of peace, he would refrain from saying certain things in public.
He insisted that he had no intention of leaving the PDP for another party, stressing that he would ensure justice was done and the South handed the party chairmanship position.
