A former National Auditor of the Peoples Democratic Party, Raymond Nnaji, said Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike is playing an extremely dangerous game.
According to The Punch, Nnaji said on Sunday while reacting to the meeting Wike and other aggrieved PDP governors had in Enugu.
Wike, Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and the host, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State met to plot the removal of the party’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.
Nnaji who faulted the move of the governors added that if they pulled the party down, it would equally affect them individually.
He said, “The governors have candidates they will put in office, otherwise they will have a problem. All these things they are doing is just a waste of time. If PDP fails in the national (election), all of them will fail. It will have a bandwagon effect; there is no way they can make changes now.
“Ugwuanyi, for instance, is the senatorial candidate for Enugu North, there is no way he can decide to go to another party or support another party now.”
When asked why they are not supporting the PDP presidential candidate, Nnaji said, “They are just playing games; that is the way I see it. They are looking for a way out of their problems because they have created problems thinking that they will make the changes but it is not working. So, if they pull the house down everybody will lose, including them.
“So, the meeting in Enugu is nothing but to play games. I believe they want to show that they are still intact. The party shouldn’t be afraid of their meeting. Let them continue to meet.”
