Debo Ologunagba: Wike Won’t Dump The Party That Brought Him From Obscurity – Politics

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed confidence that Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike will work for the victory of the party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar in the 2023 general elections.

Wike and his allies boycotted the flagoff of the party’s presidential campaign which was held in Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State capital on Monday.

The governor, who also pulled out from the presidential campaign has continued his demand for the resignation of the party’s embattled national chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu.

He also dealt with some of his erstwhile loyalists in Rivers State who are fraternising with Atiku, the recent being Sir Celestine Omehia whom he derecognised as a former governor of the state.

However, speaking with DAILY INDEPENDENT, Debo Ologunagba, the PDP National Publicity Secretary said the party leaders are united despite reports of a crack within its fold.

He said “Irrespective of the differ­ences in opinion, we are united. All our leaders, governors and stakeholders have all agreed that there is a need for all of us to come together to rescue and begin the hard work of rebuild­ing”.

“His Excellency, Governor Nyesom Wike, a very important member of this party who has done very well for this party and who has equally benefited extensively from this party, a party that brought him from obscurity to prominence is fully with us”.

“He has said it severally that he is not leaving the PDP. What it means is that it is a family matter. We are having a conversation and all issues are being discussed. We are confident that everything will be resolved before we go into the election”.

“We know that given the calibre of leaders that we have, we will take the concerns of Nigerians above our personal interests. We are all united to salvage the Nigerian people who have suffered so much under the rudderless, insensitive and inhumane government of the APC”.
