Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, issued a challenge to Rivers PDP members in Abuja, asking them to demonstrate what they have done to persuade people to switch from other parties to the PDP in their state.
Wike said that some of the PDP’s Rivers chapter’s leaders were just house boys in Abuja who liked to hang out with the party’s top brass.
The statements were made by the governor on August 30, 2022, at the commissioning of the sand-filled area in Ogbum nu Abali, Port Harcourt city’s local government, Rivers State.
“As people who want the party or your own candidate to win an election, what role are you playing in your state to make sure your party wins the election?
“How many people have you been able to galvanize and mobilize to leave the other parties and join your party to show that you’re committed and ready to make your party win the election?
“It’s not to go to Abuja and say all kinds of things. Come home and mobilize and let us see the capacity that you have. That’s what politics is all about, it is not following people up and down.
“Anywhere any true Rivers man is, you must show that you’re important and have something to offer.
“Don’t go and begin to do as a house boy. We are not known to be House boys.”
In addition, the governor urged PDP officials in other states to support their own states in the next elections rather than relying solely on Rivers State’s support.
According to reports, the governor was speaking of PDP supporters in Rivers State who support Atiku Abubakar for president.
