Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has dared the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to expel him from the Party.
Wike, who has not hidden the fact that he is in a romance with other Presidential candidates, and has done and said enough to rubbish the National Chairman of the Party, Iyorchia Ayu, and de-market the Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, said the PDP has not seen anything yet. Wike is the leader of a PDP faction, which includes four serving Governor and a couple of former ones, who are against Atiku’s aspiration, unless Ayu steps down from office.
Their bluff has since been called but not a few people are of the opinion that it could hurt Atiku’s ambition in 2023.
Wike spoke at a banquet he held in Porthacourt for his faction, now known as the Integrity Group.
A number of people have asked the PDP to expel Wike from the Party over what they see as his glaring anti-party activities. The Human Rights Writers Association, HURIWA, a couple of days ago, also urged the PDP to expel Wike. They agree Wike is on a deliberate mission to destroy the PDP.
But speaking at the banquet he held for the visiting Governors, Wike dared the Party to expel him. He said: “They say they will sack me. I have been living for the day they will sack me. Sack me. Sack me. When you sack me, I pepper you.You will know that khaki no be leather.
“Seyi, (Governor Makinde), we dey here. Ortom (Benue Governor)we dey here. Ariria (Governor Okezie lkpeazu) we dey here. Gburugburu (Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi) we dey here.”
The Group, however, says the window of dialogue is still open. Not a few people doubt that.
