Former Aviation Minister and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Femi Fani-Kayode has counseled Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state to join forces with the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Fani-Kayode, in a statement, titled, “A WORD FOR THE WIKE GROUP: LEAVE THE CARCASS AND STAND WITH US!,” issued via his Faceboo page on Wednesday, said the People’s Democratic Party, PDP is no longer a national party and does not even pretend to have respect for Southerners.
“Yet I saw all this coming long ago. Why do you think I left the PDP in the first place? It is a party that is incapable of rewarding loyalty and keeping its word. It is a party that begins and ends in the North and every Southerner and Middle Belter that is still there is nothing but a quisling and a stooge.
“It is a party that does not believe in or understand the importance of building bridges of peace, love and understanding between the North and the South and ensuring fairness, justice and equity for all.
“It is a party that does nothing but insult and seek to marginalise and destroy it’s perceived detractors and enemies and putting Nigeria in its hands would mean the end of our country within a matter of months.
“A party which is powered and controlled by hidden forces that believe they own Nigeria and that have not only sought to destabilise our nation but have also unleashed murder, mayhem, hell and terror against our people.
“A party that does not want peace but delights in conflict, rancour, division, hegemony and war.
A party some of whose leaders and members are behind much of the insurgency, bloodshed and mass murder in the North West and parts of the North Central and particularly in Zamfara, Kaduna, Niger, Nassarawa and Katsina.
“A party that has done nothing but humiliate it’s former President and flagbearer for the 2015 presidential election, President Goodluck Jonathan, over the last seven years and who did not even see fit to give him a place or a role in their Presidential Campaign Council.
“A party whose National Chairman is little better than a haughty peacock and who is so vain, puffed up, conceited and deluded that he believes he is more important than all the Presidents on the African continent put together.
“They took everything from them including their self-respect and dignity. What more do they have left and what are they waiting for?
“PDP is not only a menace to their own loyal members but a very real and present danger to Nigeria.
“The crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP gets messier on Wednesday with a group loyal to Governor Nyesom Wike announcing that they will not be part of the campaign of presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, for the 2023 elections.
“The group, after an all night meeting in the private residence of Wike in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, said they will not participate in the campaign unless Iyorcha Ayu resigned as the chairman of the party.”
“The decision of the group was announced by former Deputy National Chairman of APC, Bode George after the meeting that was held from 7pm on Tuesday, September 20 to past 2am on Wednesday September 21.” Continue reading
