Gov Nyesom Wike
Wike disclosed that he would continue to “pepper” the leadership of PDP if they sacked him from the party.
The governor has been aggrieved with the PDP leadership after losing to Atiku Abubakar during the presidential primary election.
Following his loss, Wike also called for the removal of PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.
Wike and the G-5 governors argued that the North should not be allowed to produce PDP’s presidential candidate and national chairman.
He stressed that Ayu should give way for a Southerner.
However, speaking in Port Harcourt yesterday, Wike said: “They said they will sack me, and I have been waiting for the day they will sack me.
“When you sack me, I pepper you; you will know that khaki is not the same as leather. Deputy National Chairman, tell your people we are here.”
Amid the crisis, Wike also accused Ayu of corrupt practices worth billions of naira.
Wike had dared Ayu to institute legal actions against him if his claims were false.
