Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike, has pulled out of the People’s Democratic Party’s which according to him, is necessary to save his integrity.

The Rivers state Governor was accused of issuing an order which restrained Governor Godwin Obaseki from participating in the PDP primary election preceding the Edo state governorship poll. In reaction, Wike lashed out at members of the national working committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) describing them as “tax collectors”.

In a statement released by Rivers state commissioner for information and communication Paulinus Nsirim on Tuesday June 23, Wike gave a query to the NWC for not having a meeting with governors in the case of Bayelsa state and further alleged that they are blackmailing him.
