The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has berated governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that have decamped to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Describing the governors as ‘treacherous,’ Wike said that nothing would make him join the APC.
He accused the Federal Government-led APC of coercing PDP Governors and other top members to join the ruling party.
The Governor said this in a statement titled, ‘Governors, others who defect from PDP to APC lack conscience-Wike,’ signed by his media aide, Kelvin Ebiri, in Port Harcourt, on Tuesday.
According to the statement, Wike said this during the flag off of Woji-Aleto-Alesa-Refinery Road and bridge with spur to the East-West Road at Woji town.
He said, “People who could not win an ordinary election. The party used technicality and went to court and got victory. Now, they say they are leaving the party. Hopeless, shameless human beings. People who have no conscience.
“Bring everything you have against me; I will not join you. Rivers State will not join you. Even if it is the only Rivers State in this country, we will continue to be the People’s Democratic Party.”
