Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has insisted that he will not leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for any reason, rather he will stay back and fight for unity and peace in the party.

The governor disclosed this during the PDP stakeholders meeting in Government House, Port Harcourt on Thursday.

Wakadaily earlier reports that the crisis rocking the PDP worsened as members of Wike group reportedly pulled out of the campaign council of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar. The group insist that the National chairman of the PDP, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, must resign for them to rescind their decision.”

Many people believed that governor Wike will leave the party to All progressive Congress or the Labour party.

However, wike said nothing will make him leave the party, stating that his not like others who run away during a fight and join the opposition party.

His words, “One thing I have always told people is if anybody is thinking, doing anything to think that we will leave PDP, foul.

“We will do the fight in the party. We are not like them when in 2014 they walked out of Eagle Square. They’ve forgotten. They walked out and joined APC. Is it not correct?

“Did they remain to fight inside the party? But we remained, they ran away. Now, there is a fight in the party, we will not run.

“We will fight it at this party. Those who run away from the fight are weak people. We will not. So everybody should know this is the state where we are. So that nobody tells you all kinds of stories.

“Wike wondered why the former PDP BoT chairman will be pressurised to resign and the PDP National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, is excusing himself from keeping to doing what is right.

The governor said, “You have taken presidential candidate, you have taken party chairman, you have also taken the D.G (director general) of the campaign. We are talking about party politics. Decisions are made by the presidential candidate, chairman of the party and the D.G of the campaign.

“They are telling you they told the chairman of the BOT to resign. So you know there is a problem. You said he should go and resign.

“You can put pressure on him to resign when his tenure hasn’t come to an end. But you cannot put pressure on the chairman to resign. You think at our level you will deceive us. You’ll tell us stories.”
