Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, on Friday, dared the Peoples Democratic Party to expel him and face the consequences.
He warned that the PDP might not survive his expulsion from the party.
Wike spoke while inaugurating a new road in Rivers State.
According to him, “In 2003 when President Olusegun Obasanjo wanted to run for a second tenure – a whole president wanted to run for a second tenure – he knelt down before his vice and said, ‘my vice, please, allow me to run.’
“You know one of the conditions he gave him? That Tony Anenih must be sacked as the Minister of Works and that Tony Anenih must not be in the presidential campaign council. Obasanjo obliged and sacked Tony Anenih as the Minister of Works and removed him from the presidential campaign council. This is a president, [and] his own vice giving him condition; a retired General knelt down and was given conditions.
“We (G5) are not even doing that; we are not saying sack this one; we are only saying that the constitution of our party must be respected based on what the national chairman said and based on what you told me in my house.”
Wike then dared the PDP to expel him from the party, saying, “Try and see how you will survive it.”
