Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has revealed that he rejected moves to lure him from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He stated this when he led Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Rivers to inaugurate the chief Orabule Adiele Road, Rumuolumeni, in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State on Thursday.
In a statement signed by his Special Assistant, Media, Kelvin Ebiri, Wike insisted that the PDP will continue to be the only party that hold the promise of good leadership for the country.
He stated that the former ruling party remains the only hope for Nigerians who are also waiting to vote it into power in 2023.
The Rivers governor stated that he refused to dump the PDP like some governors because he is a man of character.
Wike said: “PDP is a party that Nigerians want. No matter all the intimidation, it will not work. We are men of character. When we say something we stand by whatever we have said, not for pecuniary interest.
“If I was that kind of governor, I know how many times people have tried to woo us, we said no. We cannot be wooed. We are here. We started with PDP and will end up with PDP.
“We have no other political party to join because the fate of this country, the hope of Nigerians, solely depends on our party. That is why when we talk about our party, we are not talking about any selfish interest. But it is to continue to give Nigerians that hope that Nigeria is waiting for.
“So, when there is any mistake, we shout out. Everybody is hoping that in 2023 PDP should take over the realms of power in this country. Rivers State is already secured for PDP.”
