Wike begins Second Phase of war, Vows To Chase Atiku, Ayu, Others from PDP
The governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has pledged to chase away Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential candidate, Iyorchia Ayu, the PDP’s national chairman, and several other party figures from the PDP.
At the launching of a road project in Rivers State’s Ikwerre Local Government Area on Thursday, Governor Wike made the commitment.
Wike attributed the PDP’s defeat in the recently held presidential election to those who, in his opinion, disobeyed the PDP Constitution. He pledged to eject them from the gathering and begin the party’s reconstruction.
The governor described the move as the “second phase of the war.”
According to him: “These people left our party in 2014-2015, our party lost; again they came back, our party has lost again.
“They have destroyed our party. We are going to chase them away from our party. They have no role to play for our party.”
Wike also slammed the leadership of the PDP for accusing the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission of not following election guidelines when they (PDP) allegedly refused to follow the party’s constitution.
