Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers State Thursday said he would not leave the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Instead, he will remain in the party to fight robbers, hyenas and scavengers, he added.
Speaking when he led Peter Obi – the Labour Party’s presidential flag-bearer – to inaugurate the Nkpolu-Oroworokwo Flyover in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, Wike said he would not blame Obi for leaving the PDP.
The PDP governor said nobody would hear about the serious humiliation Obi suffered in the PDP and still remained in the party, adding that if Obi had not left the party, he would not have pursued his ambition to save Nigeria.
Wike said: “You were a member of our party, you left our party and I know why you left the party. I don’t blame you for leaving the party.
“Nobody would have suffered the humiliation you suffered. I know. Most of you don’t know. Nobody will hear what you passed through and still remain in the party.
“I will not leave. I will stay here and I will fight the vultures, the hyenas and the scavengers. I am not blaming you. On principle, you should, but me I won’t leave this house. I will never allow robbers to take over my house. I am going to stay to chase the armed robbers.
“If you have not left you would not have pursued your ambition to save Nigeria. That is his ambition, but whether he is the one I do not know yet. At the appropriate time, we will talk.”
