Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, on Saturday, mocked the former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, for celebrating the vote of confidence exceeded on his successor, Sen. Iyorcha Ayu, through the party’s National Executive Committee.
Wike stated no amount of confidence votes would save Ayu from being exiled from the position.
The governor disclosed this at a grand reception for over ninety defectors from a number of political parties into the PDP at the Isaac Adaka Boro Park in Port Harcourt.
According to him, Secondus is dancing and regarded to have forgotten history that it wasn’t the first time a sitting national chairman was eliminated from office after a vote of confidence was exceeded on him.
Wike said, “I was watching, listening. They say there is one man called Secondus. They say he was once dancing, celebrating that NEC gave their man or woman a vote of confidence. He forgets history.
“Ask him, the same NEC via Aliyu Babangida, who moved a movement for vote of confidence supported by using the equal person, Ndudi Elumelu, they gave him a vote of confidence. What happened? He left the office.
“We don’t combat and go back. If you like you can have as many as twenty votes of confidence, it’s not my business. My business and my team is to make positive the proper thing is done.
“And the proper thing need to be done, whether nowadays or tomorrow. So let nobody worry him or herself. If you’re dancing, come home and dance. Come and mobilize for the person you suppose will win the election.”

PDP has been witnessing a disaster since the emergence of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as its 2023 presidential candidate.
The party erupted into crisis when Atiku picked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as his walking mate for subsequent year’s election.
Wike has been aggrieved with PDP’s leadership over Atiku’s choice of a running mate.
Atiku omitted Wike, who came 2d during the PDP’s presidential primaries a few months ago, a scenario tearing the party apart.
Following his action, Wike referred to as for the resignation of Ayu.
The governor referred to that the North may want to no longer produce PDP’s presidential candidate and the National Chairman.
