Meanwhile, the Spokesperson for the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Daniel Bwala, has beckoned on the Federal Government to remove Nyesom Wike as governor of Rivers state before the 2023 general elections.

Bwala said the only solution to the unending crisis in the PDP in the state was the removal of the state governor.

He added that the Federal Government should declare a state of emergency in Rivers as the governor’s antics may deter free and fair conduct of the forthcoming elections in the state.

He said:

If the chief executive officer of the state cannot allow a free and fair conduct, then the proper thing to do is to declare a state of emergency, remove him and conduct election there and this wouldn’t be new in Nigeria.”
