The Governor Of rivers state Wike Has Vowed to leave the PDP if Ali Modu should be afairmed as the leader of the party.
Wike stated that working under the leadership of Ali Modu is against his believe. He further noted that he will be leaving the pdp if the Supereme court ruling favors the sheriff’s faction.
Governor Wike said:
“Why we are following up this issue is for the stance of the law on certain things to be stated properly.
“It is very, very unlikely for me to be under Sheriff if the supreme court rules he is the party chairman. I can’t say if I will leave but of course I have my choice. He added
“There are things you can’t go on with, they’re certainly wrong.
“Have you seen the characters around Sheriff? Do the party have any clear roadmap with such person? And then you want me to go and work under such person? It is against my belief. It is even against the tradition, no I can’t do that.”
In Another Department, The senate President Has Ordered the Inspector General of police to immediately arrest the Fulani herds’ men suspected in killings in communities, forests, and farmlands across the country.
The senate particularly ordered the arrest of the killers of Mr. Solomon Ejoh who was killed by the Fulani herds’ men in Ovre-Abraka, Delta state on April 24 2017.
The point of order was entitled “Need for urgent national security intervention to stop the gruesome killing of Urhobo and other Nigerians in Delta Central Senatorial District and other parts of the nation by terrorist elements masquerading as herdsmen in rural communities, forests and farms.”
The Deputy Senate president Ike Ekweremadu said that the senate is strictly against the killing of Nigerian citizens and destruction of properties.
. “Senate condemns the act, human life is sacred. We call on government at all levels to wake up to their responsibilities. We also call on security agencies to do their work,”
He further expressed concern“that against the letters and spirit of our constitution and without regards for the sanctity of human life and any justification whatsoever, Urhobo and, indeed, other Nigerians, are being gruesomely and extra-judicially killed in rural communities, forests, and farms by terrorist elements and hardened criminals who are armed with sophisticated war weapons and who masquerade as herdsmen.”
The former Governor of Jigawa State Sule Lamido has openly announced that he is going to contest under the PDP for the forthcoming 2019 presidential elections.
Lamido said that all the coercion and intimidations of the present Government is not going to stop him from contesting in the forthcoming elections.
“All the coercion and intimidation were because of my aspiration, and I must tell them that no matter what, if Allah has destined that I will be president, they cannot stop me because that will amount to fighting the will of God.
“Leaders should beware of the consequences that follow tyranny, impunity and abuse of human dignity.”
Lamido was sentenced to prison on Tuesday, May 2, 2017, for alleged conducts capable of breaching peace.He was however granted bail on self-recognizance on Thursday may 4, 2017.
“Those in power today must know the same God that made Balewa, Ironsi, Gowon, Murtala, Shagari, Buhari, Babangida and Jonathan presidents can do the same for me if He so wishes.
“For now, what we are doing is internal; that is why I believe I have to start from home. I am aware a lot of people are likely to indicate interest in running on the platform of our great party. Please, we must make sure we go for the best.
“After series of consultations across the length and breadth of Nigeria, when the time comes, I will be offering myself for the presidency. I may not be the only aspirant, but please, when the time comes, only the best should be allowed to emerge on the platform of our great party, the PDP.”
Lamido had, in January this year, declared that no matter the level of oppression and intimidation, if God wishes for him to be president in 2019, nobody would stop him.”
