One More PDP Governor To Defect To APC - Wike

Published by Nairaland on Thu, 19 Nov 2020

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has stated that one more Governor of the People's Democratic Party will be defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).<br><br>Wike was a guest at Seun Okin's #PoliticsToday on ChannelsTV. When quizzed to name the Governor, he replied &quot;you know, you journalists, you know&quot;.<br><br><blockquote>Amid the reactions trailing the defection of Governor Dave Umahi from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congressive, Governor Nyesom Wike has suggested that one more governor will leave the party.<br><br>I can tell you, there is one PDP governor that will leave, he said Wednesday during an appearance on Politics Today.<br><br>Governor Wike, however, declined to give the name of the governor or when he will leave the party.<br><br>Just like Umahi, he expects the governor to come up with another excuse when giving reasons for his defections.<br><br>The point is that these are the people who have been playing anti-party (politics). They will be romancing with the APC in the night and coming out to PDP in the day time, he said.<br><br>Anti-party activities have bothered Governor Wike for some time but he does not think the PDP is taking the problem as seriously as it should.<br><br>My problem with our party is that when you speak the truth, they want to crucify you. I have raised this issue severally and severally and severally.<br><br>Umahis defection has created a political storm, sparking angry reactions from the PDP and cutting down the number of governors the party has in the South-East to two (Abia and Enugu). The APC controls Imo and now Ebonyi, while APGA holds sway in Anambra.<br><br>Governor Wike believes that people attribute too much power to governors when the real power lies with the people.<br><br>Citing the 2019 victories PDP recorded over incumbent APC governors in Bauchi and Adamawa, he downplayed the impact of Umahis defection on future elections.<br><br>We didnt have party structure in Adamawa, we won because the people spoke. We didnt have party structure in Bauchi, we won. The people spoke, he said.<br><br>As I speak to you today, performance is what gives any party, assuming a ruling party in that state, an advantage to win a future election. It is not because you are the governor. </blockquote><br><a href="https://www.channelstv.com/2020/11/18/one-pdp-governor-will-leave-the-party-says-wike/amp/">ChannelsTV </a><br><br> <iframe class=youtube src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/tqV312QTB-A" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch'v=tqV312QTB-A">https://www.youtube.com/watch'v=tqV312QTB-A</a>
