The Rivers state chapter of the people’s democratic party has denied reports that an aspirant for the chairmanship position of the PDP, Uche Secondus is being sponsored by Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike.
Publicity Secretary of the PDP in Rivers, Samuel Nwanosike told journalists on Thursday that the report is false, adding that delegates will determine the winner of the election.
“How would you bring Governor Nyesom Wike in the matter? Will he be the one to decide who the delegates from all parts of the country will vote for? No, that is not correct. The allegation is not correct.
PDP is a political party that is trying to organize itself again. We will not go back to the days of impunity. You heard the former Vice President (Atiku Abubakar), said he left APC because the party is entrenched in impunity and impunity measures.
We, having lost the 2015 presidential election, and knowing the pressure that has brought to us as a political party, cannot go back to that old order. On December 9, everybody should go and canvass for votes. It does not matter what anybody says.”
