Top PDP Lawmakers ‘Cross Over’ To APC, As Governor Wike Explodes In Anger

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has delivered a damning verdict on most of the Senators and House of Representatives Members elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over their roles in the election of National Assembly Principal Officers, on Tuesday.

Most of them, he said, betrayed the party, and are unworthy of trust.
He accused them of selling out on the positions of the party, during the heated exercise.
Post-Nigeria could recall, that the National Working Committee, NWC, of the PDP, early Tuesday morning, endorsed Senator Ali Ndume for the Senate Presidency.
The party also instructed its members in the House of Representatives, to support the ambition of Hon. Umaru Bako, to become Speaker.

Wike, according to impeccable sources, mobilised the NWC members to push through the endorsements, despite the initial reluctance of the party to do so.
It was gathered that, but for Wike’s frantic efforts, the PDP would not have endorsed Ndume or Bago for the National Assembly principal posts.
The PDP supported Ike Ekeremadu, for Deputy Senate Presidency, but despite the endorsements, Senator Ahmed Lawan won with 79 votes, to Ndume’s 28 votes.
This is despite the fact that the PDP boasts of not less than 46 Senators.
Senator Ovie Omo-Agege was elected Deputy Senate President, with 68 votes, to Ekeremadu’s 37 votes.

In the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila scored 281 votes, to knock out Bago, with 76 votes.
Yet, PDP members in the Lower Chamber are over 140, fuelling speculations that most of them ignored directives of the party.
Speaking on the disloyalty of the PDP NASS members, Wike said that they sold “out themselves for one plate of porridge’’.
He revealed that it is the typical act of Politicians, most of whom he said he does not trust at all.
The Governor, while receiving visiting Bishops of the Anglican Province of the Niger Delta, at the Government House, Port Harcourt, said that he rather trust only God, who he noted, never changes.
He said: “I do not trust any human being. It is difficult for me to give 100 percent trust, that a man will continue to be like this or like that.

“The only person that cannot change is God. For human beings, they can always change. That is why they are human beings.
“You can trust a human being, but be careful to open your eyes, because anything can happen.”
He went on: “So, as a Politician, one group you must watch very carefully are the Politicians. They are easily swayed. Some believe. When they believe, they believe.
“Something can entice Politicians and they change. If you watch what happened at the National Assembly, you can see that this is the attitude of Politicians.

“You see the party has a position, before you know it, they are selling out themselves for one plate of porridge.
“This one has a case, and he wants them to withdraw the case. These things we know, and we are guided about it.
“I will never let my guard down, to say everybody is with me. The only person I can be comfortable with at all times, is God. If it is human being, no.”
