I & My Loyalists Won’t Leave PDP, Retreating From A Fight Is A Sign Of Weakness – Gov Wike Reveals

The crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) took a new twist on Wednesday, 21st of September, 2022, as Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and his loyalists, including Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, announced their withdrawal from Atiku Abubakar’s 2023 presidential campaign council and will not make a u-turn on their decision until Iyorchia Ayu resigns as the party’s national chairman.
Since the conclusion of the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential primary, Governor Nyesom Wike has been aggrieved and has persistently asked that Senator Iyorchia Ayu resigns as the party’s national chairman, as he promised to do so if a Northern presidential aspirant emerges as the party’s 2023 presidential flagbearer.

In a report by Channels Television on Thursday, 22nd of September, 2022, Governor Nyesom Wike has revealed that he and his loyalists will not leave the Peoples Democratic Party contrary to expectations, but will remain to fight for internal democracy.
Governor Nyesom Wike, who spoke after meeting PDP leaders in Rivers State on Thursday, explained that retreating from a fight is a sign of weakness and revealed he will speak to the media on Friday, 23rd of September, 2022, to reveal his side of the story and expose PDP leaders who pride themselves as elder statesmen.

The Rivers State Governor further questioned why the PDP which claim it will unify the country if it regains power in 2023, have allowed it’s internal crisis to linger till this time.
