Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has promised never to accept northern supremacy in the leadership of the party amid the turmoil tearing through the Peoples Democratic Party.
Wike disapproved of the party’s present leadership structure, which includes Iyorchia Ayu as national chairman, Atiku Abubakar as the party’s presidential candidate, and Aminu Tambuwal as director general of the presidential campaign.
He claimed that no one could persuade him to give up advocating for party internal democracy.

Wike stated this on Wednesday night, while hosting PDP candidates and local government party chairmen from Cross River State at his residence in Port Harcourt, where he donated 25 buses to support their campaigns.
The delegation of PDP candidates for state and national elections in Cross River State was on a courtesy visit to Wike.
They appreciated Wike for being a strong support to them since their Governor, Ben Ayade dumped the PDP for the All Progressives Congress.
Wike promised to support the Cross River PDP, even as he encouraged the candidates to be deliberate about winning the elections.
