By Muhammed Saheed

The governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has bowed out of the reconciliation committee of the Edo State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), alleging members of the National Working Committee of sycophancy.

He made the statement through his commissioner for information and communications on Tuesday at Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

Wike revealed that some members of the NWC would never speak the truth, and instead of carrying everyone along in Edo State, they resorted to using the media to blackmail him.

He said, “I told them that in Edo State, we must handle the issue carefully and carry everybody along. They must respect human beings and not behave like tax collectors.

“They said because an order was obtained from a Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, then I am responsible.

“I have had sleepless nights to resolve the issue in Edo State. The governors of Edo, Adamawa, and Delta States know what I have done to resolve the issues in Edo State.

“As a result of this senseless accusation, I have pulled out of Edo State settlement. My integrity matters.

“Nobody will rubbish me by raising false accusations against me. I will fight back”, he promised.
