Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers, says nobody can turn his allies in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against him.
Wike said this on Monday, while inaugurating a flyover along the Aba-Enugu expressway in Osisioma Ngwa LGA of Abia — the Rivers governor was a guest of Okezie Ikpeazu, governor of Abia.
Ikpeazu and some PDP governors — Seyi Makinde of Oyo, Samuel Ortom of Rivers, and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu — have been found in the company of the Rivers governor in recent times amid the crisis rocking the party.
Speaking on Monday, Wike said relationship can’t be bought with money, adding that politics is not played in the media.
He stated that his colleagues in the PDP are working with him to demand that the right thing be done in the party.
“They say some people are making attempts to break my rank. I say to myself that they don’t understand the modus operandi of what we are doing. If they understand the modus operandi of what we are doing, they won’t waste their time,” Wike said.
“If you like, go and meet Ikpeazu. If you like go and meet Seyi (Makinde), if you like, go and meet Ortom (Samuel), and if you like go and meet Ugwuanyi (Ifeanyi). People think that relationships can be bought with money.
“Politics is not to go on the pages of newspapers. Politics is not to go and buy slots on television and speak. It is who will deliver at the appropriate time. That is what is key. If you like, abuse me from now until tomorrow, it’s your business.
“What is important is when the time comes, we will know. When the jungle matures, we will know those who can stand the crisis. We will know those who have the capacity to say this is where our state will go. Ikpeazu is one of those governors who has capacity and will decide where the people of Abia state will go.”
