Suspending G-5 loyalists won’t help PDP – Wike


Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike has told the chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the country, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu and the suspension of party members supporting the G-5 governors will not help the PDP in the upcoming elections.

Wike said that with Ayu’s new actions, a battle line has been drawn insisting that they will recognize all Ayu’s illegal decisions in court.

The Rivers Governor, who referred to Ayu’s punitive measures as total rubbish, said they had gone beyond such decisions.

Wike said: “Your suspending people will not help you in any way. The battle line has been fully drawn. As I speak to you we will do everything legally possible to challenge any decision that we know is illegal.

“Don’t think you can threaten people by telling them you are suspended. Rubbish. It is completely rubbish. We are above that level. Don’t think you can threaten and intimidate anybody. We believe in the rule of law and we believe our party must respect their constitution.

“You are doing what will give you more headaches as far as this election is concerned. We are watching and we are waiting for you to announce more of my friends. When a man says you will not sleep, will he sleep too? Will Ayu sleep?”
