The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to speculations that the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, may dump the party amidst the crisis rocking the party.
The National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, in a statement released on Friday, dismissed the claim that Wike would dump PDP.
Ologunagba described the Rivers State Governor as an important and loyal member of the party.
He further stated that Governor Wike has invested so much in the main opposition party for him to dump the party.
The PDP spokesman noted that Wike had promised that he would support any candidate that emerge as the presidential candidate of the party before the primary was held.
He said he does not have evidence that the Rivers State Governor has changed his mind on his promise.
Ologunagba said, “Governor Wike is an important member of this party. He is a man who has invested so much in this party. He has also harvested so much from the party; the party has also promoted him.
“He has said in so many fora that he is a committed party man and has remained loyal to the party since inception.
“Before the presidential primaries which he contested, he told the whole world that he was ready to respect the outcome of the elections. I have no evidence that he has changed his mind.”
