Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers has said that he will remain in the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) and continue to fight for justice and fairness.
Wike made this known while reiterating the stance of the PDP G5 governors, also known as the integrity governors, which is to remain in the party.
The governor, who is the leader of the G5, added that the governors have no intention of leaving the PDP for “anyone”.
He said, “We are not like them. We are not going to leave our house for armed robbers. This is the party that we built, and we are not going to leave it. Leave it for whom?
“Peace must come. We will remain inside this party and fight. Equity, fairness and justice, that is what our party is telling Nigerians,” Wike said.
ThisNigeria reports that the G5 governors which include Wike (Rivers), Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu) and Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state have been consistent in their demand that Iyorchia Ayu steps down as the national chairman of the PDP.
Recall that Ayu had promised to resign from his position, should the presidential candidate emerge from the Northern part of the country.
However, the PDP national chairman reneged his promise, saying that he would spend his five-year tenure before leaving the position.
