Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has boasted that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) will suffer if he leaves the party.
Speaking less than a week after the opposition party lost Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River to the All Progressives Congress (APC), Wike described himself as an asset to the PDP.
He also took a swipe at some members of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) whom he described as tax collectors.
“If I leave PDP tomorrow, the party will suffer… Some members of PDP NWC are tax collectors. I did not said that all the members of NWC are tax collectors but some of them and I stand by my words,” he said at a briefing in Government House, Port Harcourt, on Monday.
