The governor of Rivers state, Barrister Nyesom Wike has pulled out of the PDP reconciliatory meeting in Edo state.
The governor accused some members of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) of sponsoring newspaper publications to malign his integrity and soil his reputation.
Wike said, “I told them that in Edo State, we must handle the issue carefully and carry everybody along. They must respect human beings and not behave like tax collectors.
“They said because an order was obtained from a Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, then I am responsible.
“I have had sleepless nights to resolve the issue in Edo State. The Governors of Edo, Adamawa, and Delta states, know what I have done to resolve the issues in Edo.
“As a result of this senseless accusation, I have pulled out of Edo State settlement. My integrity matters.”
The rivers state governor warned the PDP NWC members against doing anything that will destroy the party.
