The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has refused assertions that Rivers State’s governor, Nyesom Wike will leave the party soon.

PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, recounted that Wike is an important, loyal member, and had invested so much in PDP, hence dumping the party was impossible.

Reports stated that Wike was displeased since the PDP’s presidential primary elected Atiku Abubakar as its flagbearer.

The governor is believed to be aggrieved that Atiku ignored him and picked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as his running mate.

Since then, he has been associating with chieftains of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

This birthed assumptions that Wike may defect to another party in the forthcoming elections.

Countering this in a statement, Ologunagba said;

Governor Wike is an important member of this party. He is a man who has invested so much in this party. He has also harvested so much from the party; the party has also promoted him.

“He has said in so many fora that he is a committed party man and has remained loyal to the party since inception.

Before the presidential primaries which he contested, he told the whole world that he was ready to respect the outcome of the elections. I have no evidence that he has changed his mind.”
