PDP replies Wike: we are not acting like Tax Collectors

The People Democratic Party PDP has replied  Rivers State Governor Barr. Nyesom Wike over him pulling out of the Edo State Reconciliation.

The Rivers State Governor had singled himself out of the Reconciliation over some comments attributed to him.

Nyesom Wike said:

“I told them that in Edo State, we must handle the issue carefully and carry everybody along. They must respect human beings and not behave like tax collectors.

“They said because an order was obtained from a Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, then I am responsible.”

In a Press release by Kola Ologbondiyan National Publicity Secretary o the PDP it reads:

Edo Guber: PDP Flays External Forces

The Peoples Democratic Party IPDP) wishes to state that no member of its National Working Committee (NWC) sponsored any media publication to castigate and malign the person of Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike.

The party described such publications as handwork of external forces and enemies of the PDP who are bent on sowing seeds of discord within the party.

The NWC also wishes to place on record that none of its members has acted like a “tax collector” in whatever meaning the term represents, either in the process leading to the Edo primary election, or any other state.

Our party holds Governor Wike and indeed all our PDP governors, who, of course, have been the pillars of our great party, with utmost respect and had always consulted them
on all party affairs.

The PDP appreciates the efforts and sacrifices of our governors and will not allow enemies of our party, who are out to cause disunity in our fold by sponsoring baseless publications against our leaders, to have their way.

This time demands the unity of all our leaders in order to keep our political rivals, who are facing extinction, from importing their crises into our party.

The PDP remains one indivisible family and our members are at alert and will continue to resist every attempt by external forces to divide our ranks at this critical time.
