In the face of serious crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, the man at the center stage, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has alleged threat to his life.
It should be noted that Wike has been calling for the leadership of the major opposition party to prevail on the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu to resign.
According to Wike, they threatened him for insisting that Ayu should resign as the National Chairman of PDP.
He made this allegation this at the commissioning of the Akpabu-Itu-Umudiogha road in the Emohua Local Government Area of the state yesterday.
According to Wike: “When I see some people running around and talking rubbish, they forget history easily. Today, we are not saying the presidential candidate should relinquish his ticket. We are not being selfish.
“We are only saying since you are now the presidential candidate, let our people take chairmanship and they say they will kill me. Is it possible?”
He said some people he described as rent-seekers from the state were running around Atiku, hoping that they would become ministers.
“When you see some rent seekers from here going around saying they will give me minister of finance, they will give me governor of Central Bank, you haven’t killed an animal and you are saying women, don’t eat it. Kill the animal first to know whether women will eat or not.
“I don’t want that kind of promise. Give my people this one we are talking now. Give us the chairman so that things can move freely. They come and tell you stories,” he said.
