Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike has cautioned those who are issuing threats of possible punitive action against the five aggrieved governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) dubbed as G5 to perish the thought.
Bellnewsonline.com reports that governors that constitute the G5 are Wike, Seyi Makinde of Oyo, Samuel Ortom of Benue, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu.
Over the past few months, Wike and his allies have been calling for the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu as the PDP National Chairman, citing that Ayu and Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate, cannot come from the same region.
However, Ayu had insisted that he would not resign his position on the basis of the demands of Wike’s allies.
Speaking on the crisis at the Mgbuodohia Community Primary School Premises, venue of the flag-off of the construction of Mgbuodohia Road in Rumuolumene Town of Obio-Akpor Local Government Area (LGA) on Tuesday, the Rivers State governor said abusing members of the G5 and their allies will only complicate the lingering trouble in the PDP.
“Nobody can drive us from this house we have built. All of us will fight here.
“So, if anybody thinks that you can just sit in your house and dish out orders, it will not work. The house will collapse on you. So, you better think twice,” Wike said.
