Wike To PDP – You Cannot Do Without Me

The Governor of Rivers State Gov. Nyesom Wike has declared that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) can’t do without him.


While speaking to journalists in a granted interview on Friday the 23rd of September 2022, the governor made this declaration. When asked his thoughts on the current disunity that rocked the waters of the PDP, the governor said he was not in control of people’s choices, thoughts or words, adding that; “…they can’t do without me, I don’t mean they can’t do without me, but, they can’t do without me in this state.”


During the interview the Governor spoke broadly, sharing insights on some of the underground politics that played out during and after the PDP’s convention which saw the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as the party’s presidential candidate.


The interview session which took place at the Rivers State government house, Port Harcourt, lasted for about 2hrs and had journalists like Gbenga Aruleba of African Independent Television (AIT), Amenze Igiebor of Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), and Seun Okinbaloye of Channels Television in attendance.


When asked what kind of message he would be sending during his campaign, Governor Wike said “the way I speak to journalists is not the way I speak to everyone…” saying that he had different manners of speaking and approaches that were dependent on who he was speaking to.


In response to another question, “If the election were to be called today, do you think your party will win?”
Gov. Wike had expressed confidence in his party saying that “Yes, my party is likely to win if they take advantage of the support Nigerians are giving, and do the right thing.”
Also stating that he had been wooed by other parties inclusive of the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu who he claimed had asked him to run for senate after he lost the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
“They know I’m important, do they woo who is not important…if you’re an asset people would always talk to you,” He said.
