The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has justified the decision of Peter Obi to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Labour Party (LP).
Speaking on Thursday during the commissioning of the Ikoku flyover by Obi in Rivers State, Wike revealed that the former Anambra State Governor was humiliated in the PDP.
Bellnewsonline.com recalls few days before the conduct of the PDP presidential primaries, Obi dumped the party for Labour Party where he eventually emerged as a presidential candidate.
He suffered some backlash for the decision but Wike explained on Thursday that the move is justifiable and most people would not have been able to bear what Obi went through in the party.
The Rivers State Governor on his own however vowed that he won’t leave the PDP but will stay and fight some people he referred to as vandals, tigers, hyenas, and armed robbers.
“You were in our party, and I know why you left. Now let me tell you, the humiliation you suffered, I know. Most of you don’t know and nobody could bear what he passed through.
“You could not stay in the party but I will not leave. I will stay there, I will fight the vandals, I will fight the tigers, I will fight the hyenas.
“You of principle you should leave, but me I will not leave this house, I will never allow armed robbers to take over my house. I am going to stay to chase away the armed robbers,” Wike said.
