Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has reacted to speculations that he is set to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Speculations about Wike being set to defect to another party went viral following the governor’s criticisms of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.

Clarifying his position in a statement, Wike said that his action should not be misunderstood to mean that there is an irredeemable crisis in the party.

Wike emphasised that since he is not interested in defecting to another political party, particularly, the All Progressives Congress (APC), he would continue to speak out against perceived abnormalities in the PDP to ensure it does not die.

He made the clarification when friends and political associates paid him a surprise visit, to felicitate with him and his wife, Justice Suzzette Eberechi Nyesom-Wike on his birthday at the Government House, Port Harcourt, on the night of Sunday, December 13.

In a statement by his media aide, Kelvin Ebiri, the governor said as a founding member of the PDP, he would continue to speak against whatever is militating against the progress of the party, irrespective of who is in charge of the NWC.

Further, he stated that he had experienced several persecutions in his political journey, adding that he could not imagine if any other governor had been fought like him and survived.

He said he would continue to stand on the path of truth to defend the interest of the state, saying that anyone who is opposed to the interest of Rivers state would never be considered a friend by him.
