Nyesom Wike: I challenge PDP to suspend me

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has attributed his failure to clinch the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during Saturday’s primaries to gang up from northern governors and betrayal from southern governors.

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has challenged the National Executive Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party to suspend him from the party.

This follows talks from within the party that no one can be bigger than the party, and that he may be suspended.

The governor has remained vocal against some party leaders following calls for the resignation of the National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.

“Anything you see you take. They know what I will do.

“Nobody has the monopoly of making problems.”
