Recall that there had been media reports making rounds where the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike had berated the incumbent Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, Iyorchia Ayu.
He said, “I thought as a Chairman of a party who wants win election, your business is to bring peace to your party, your business is not to divide your party, your business is not to bring arrogance to your party.
“Doctor Ayu said we are children, the children who got you to be chairman of the party, the children who got you from the gutter to make you chairman.
“Ayu, you were impeached as the Senate President. Arrogance cannot take you to anywhere.
“I had kept quiet thinking that we will reconcile but since you brought arrogance to say you were elected where did you campaign, show me where your poster was in this state.
“He is telling us that we are children, a man who is inconsistent and ran away from the party, telling those of us who spent our time to make sure this party doesn’t go down, now has the audacity to tell us we are children, we will tell you, you are the prodigal father.”
