The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State would not drop the party for any other political party no matter how hard the situation.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, while speaking on the possibility of the governor to leave the party, said Wike is an important fragment of PDP and would not leave the party at this time.
He added that the governor had invested so much in PDP to think of dumping the party.
Recall that Wike has been aggrieved since the PDP’s presidential primary that produced Atiku Abubakar as its flagbearer.
The governor is believed to aggrieved that Atiku ignored him and picked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as his running mate.
He has been associating with chieftains of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Following this, there have been speculations that Wike may leave the party soon.
But Ologunagba, in a statement claimed that: “Governor Wike is an important member of this party. He is a man who has invested so much in this party. He has also harvested so much from the party; the party has also promoted him.
“He has said in so many fora that he is a committed party man and has remained loyal to the party since inception.
“Before the presidential primaries which he contested, he told the whole world that he was ready to respect the outcome of the elections. I have no evidence that he has changed his mind.”
