Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has expressed that governors defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) lack conscience.
His statement following the recent defections of Cross River and Zamfara State governors, Ben Ayade and Bello Matawalle to the ruling APC.
Speaking on Tuesday during the inauguration of a road in Port Harcourt, the state capital, Wike stated that it is hypocritical of the APC to demonise the PDP, yet turn around to poach members of the same party.
“People who could not win ordinary election. The party used technicality and went to court and got victory. Now, they say they are leaving the party. Hopeless, shameless human beings. People who have no conscience,” Wike said.
Wike also accused the federal government of blackmailing PDP governors into joining the APC.
“Bring everything you have against me, I will not join you. Rivers state will not join you. Even if it is only Rivers state in this country, we will continue to be Peoples Democratic Party.”
