Rivers APC, PDP bicker over calls for Nyesom Wike’s resignation
The All Progressives Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) are at loggerheads over calls for the resignation of Governor Nyesom Wike over controversial refusal of allegation against Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi by the Integrity Group.
The APC Chairman, Davis Ikanya, stirred the hornet nest yesterday by calling for the resignation of Governor Wike.He said the APC had always maintained that Wike had been desperate to ridicule Amaechi.
“He should save us this agony and formally resign without any further delay, failing which the state House of Assembly should commence impeachment proceedings against him if it is not a rubber-stamp as widely believed,” said Ikanya.
But the PDP Chairman, Felix Obuah, has described the call as nonsensical, child’s play and an act of frustration.Obuah described the call as provocative, noting that such call can only emanate from debasers, clowns and irresponsible political jobbers seeking relevance, adding that as far as the PDP was concerned, the so-called ‘revelation’ by a chameleonic Wechie lacks worth and substance and therefore does not require a serious-minded governor and the PDP to be perturbed about it, not to talk of resigning and abandoning the people’s mandate.
