Another PDP Governor will leave – Governor Wike says

Governor Nyesom Wike has revealed that  another Governor who was elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will also leave, few days after Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The Rivers state Governor in an interview on Channels Television on Wednesday November 18, revealed this but refused to give the name of the governor or when he will be leaving the party.

“I can tell you, there is one PDP governor that will leave. The point is that these are the people who have been playing anti-party (politics). They will be romancing with the APC in the night and coming out to PDP in the day time.

“My problem with our party is that when you speak the truth, they want to crucify you. I have raised this issue severally and severally and severally.”

Governor Wike also attributed the 2019 victories PDP recorded over incumbent APC governors in Bauchi and Adamawa, to the people and the governors.

“We didn’t have party structure in Adamawa, we won because the people spoke. We didn’t have party structure in Bauchi, we won. The people spoke.

“As I speak to you today, performance is what gives any party, assuming a ruling party in that state, an advantage to win a future election. It is not because you are the governor.
