The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Friday, dared the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party to suspend him if they so desire.
Wike said this during a live media chat at the Government House in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
The governor said the party should be ready to face the consequences should they take such a decision.
He also accused PDP National Chairman, Sen Iyorcha Ayu of corruption, alleging that he collected N1Billion inducement to compromise the process of May presidential primary of the party.
Wike who described himself as an asset said;
“I dare them to do it. They know what I can do. A child who says his father will not sleep, will also not sleep.
“If you are an asset people will come to you. Who is a pretty girl that people don’t want to talk to?”
According to Wike, if the party’s national chairman loves the party and wants it to win the coming elections, he should honour his words and step down for a Southerner to succeed him.
“If Ayu says he loves this party so much and wants it to win elections, he should keep his word and leave.
“I heard if the PDP wins the election, the national chairman wants to be Secretary of the Government of the Federation. Somebody else wants to be Senate President.
“They have shared positions. They pressured the BoT chairman to resign. Why didn’t they pressure the national chairman to resign?
“The problem is that we have not won elections and we are too arrogant. All they know is name-calling. Wike did this, Wike camp did that. Why not address the issues?
“They are saying we can do without Wike. Some of those supporting Atiku are his enemies. Some of them are from Edo.”
