PDP will do whatever it takes so that Wike doesn’t defect, we’ll kneel for him – BoT

Walid Jibrin, chairman of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says the party will do whatever it takes to ensure Nyesom Wike doesn’t defect to another party.

Jibrin said this on Monday, while addressing journalists in Kaduna.

Jibrin described the Governor of Rivers state, Barr. Nyesom Wike as “a great man who has been fighting for the party, and the party will not want to see him moving to another party”.

He also said the party will meet with all the persons who participated in the primaries.

“We will all visit Wike together and if it means kneeling to Wike, we will kneel for him,” the BoT chairman said.

“We respect him. We respect his integrity and honesty in supporting the PDP. It is our belief that in any contest, there must be a winner and a loser.”

He also advised members of the party to be united in order to win the 2023 elections, adding that the PDP lost the recent governorship election in Ekiti because of lack of unity.

“I want to call on PDP members to come together and work together in unity,” he said.

“We should not be divided against ourselves. We must unite within ourselves. If we begin to have problems among ourselves, there would be more problems for us.

“What happened in Ekiti should not happen in the next governorship election in Osun state. We lost Ekiti because we are not even united among ourselves. If we are united, we would have won in Ekiti hands down.”
