Governor of Rivers, Nyesom Wike on Saturday blew hot ,saying, 20 votes of confidence on Iyorchia Ayu, PDP’s national chairman, cannot save him from collapse.
He spoke on Saturday when he received over 90 defectors from various political parties into the PDP in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
He said he was watching and listening when he saw the party’s former chairman, Uche Secondus rejoicing that a vote of confidence has kept Ayu as the PDP’s national chairman.
“They said Secudus was dancing, celebrating that NEC gave their person a vote of confidence. He forgot history,” he said.
Wike said the same National Executive Council (NEC) through Aliyu Babangida moved a motion for vote of confidence on Secondus, supported by Ndude Elumelu, but said despite that Secondus still left the office.
He said he and his team did not fight and go back, saying “if you like you can have as many as 20 votes of confidence, it is not my business. My business and my team is to make sure the right thing is done.
“And the right thing must be done, whether today or tomorrow. So let nobody worry him or herself. If you are dancing, come home and dance. Come and mobilise for the person you think will win the election.”
Wike boasted that he and his team were on ground and waiting for Secondus to play his game, saying that this time around, there is not more in this game and in the state.
“We have stopped all these 419 people. Enough is enough. You people should go home and rest. We know we are already waiting for the day set by INEC for them to blow the whistle.
“When they blow the whistle, we will know those who are in charge of Rivers State and those who are mere visitors to the state,” he boasted.
