Wike: One More PDP Governor To Defect To APC by fergie001: 8:26pm On Nov 18
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has stated that one more Governor of the People's Democratic Party will be defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Wike was a guest at Seun Okin's #PoliticsToday on ChannelsTV. When quizzed to name the Governor, he replied "you know, you journalists, you know".

Amid the reactions trailing the defection of Governor Dave Umahi from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congressive, Governor Nyesom Wike has suggested that one more governor will leave the party.

“I can tell you, there is one PDP governor that will leave,” he said Wednesday during an appearance on Politics Today.

Governor Wike, however, declined to give the name of the governor or when he will leave the party.

Just like Umahi, he expects the governor to “come up with another excuse” when giving reasons for his defections.

“The point is that these are the people who have been playing anti-party (politics). They will be romancing with the APC in the night and coming out to PDP in the day time,” he said.

Anti-party activities have bothered Governor Wike for some time but he does not think the PDP is taking the problem as seriously as it should.

“My problem with our party is that when you speak the truth, they want to crucify you. I have raised this issue severally and severally and severally.”

Umahi’s defection has created a political storm, sparking angry reactions from the PDP and cutting down the number of governors the party has in the South-East to two (Abia and Enugu). The APC controls Imo and now Ebonyi, while APGA holds sway in Anambra.

Governor Wike believes that people attribute too much power to governors when the real power lies with the people.

Citing the 2019 victories PDP recorded over incumbent APC governors in Bauchi and Adamawa, he downplayed the impact of Umahi’s defection on future elections.

‘We didn’t have party structure in Adamawa, we won because the people spoke. We didn’t have party structure in Bauchi, we won. The people spoke,” he said.

“As I speak to you today, performance is what gives any party, assuming a ruling party in that state, an advantage to win a future election. It is not because you are the governor.”

I suspect he's talking about the Cross Rivers state governor. At this rate, election on a party platform no too matter again, since any governor can easily decamp to another party regardless of the party he was elected under.

No doubt. Na Ben Ayade. He has not moved because he feared he might be impeached. He doesn't have the house and the pdp structure in the state that's his only fear.

So what exactly will be his motivation for cross carpeting to the APC? For Umahi we already know. What's in it for Ayade?

wike will leave pdp after his second term if he failed to secure Senate,hence a party can't serve their interest again,they will dump the party,that's what rotimi amaechi did,hence he has exhausted pdp,he left for apc.

But it'll be a bit difficult for them to flag 2023 presidency in Apc.

it might be easy in PDP but i doubt if they'll give them, PDP might come with excuse that they've (South) just got out of the presidency in 2015.

but I prefer how, some of them are in apc and some In PDP. Because sooner or later, Presidency will be zoned to South in both parties.
if the northern used their slots in both parties

it'll surely be ikpeazụ or Ugwuanyi cos the later never supported Atiku in the last election and he's been romancing with the federal gradually w/out the eyes of the public. As for Ben Ayade, I don't know about him.
