Ahead of the 2023 election, Dino Melaye, one of the spokespersons of the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Organisation, has said Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State will not leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
It was reported that the crisis involving the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku, and Wike has not been resolved.
The camp of the Rivers governor had demanded Iyorchia Ayu’s resignation as National Chairman of the PDP as one of the conditions that must be fulfilled to resolve the post-presidential primary crisis rocking the party.
There are rumours Wike may dump the PDP should his camp be unsuccessful in their bid to oust Ayu. But Melaye is certain Wike will remain a member of the party.
“I say it with every blood in my vein that Wike is a PDP man. He is not going to leave the party and he is going to work with Atiku Abubakar because I know that he is a man of honour,” Melaye told Nigerian Tribune in an interview published on Saturday.
“He is a man of his words. I was present at the national convention where Wike held the microphone and said he was a PDP man 100 per cent and that whoever emerged there that day as the presidential candidate was going to have his support.
“Wike is 59 going on 60. He is a matured man; he is not going to eat his words.”
