A Presidential Aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dele Momodu says Nyesom Wike, Governor of Rivers State, South South Nigeria, and his allies leaving the party will be “political . suicide” for them.
Gatekeepers News reports that Momodu spoke in a chat with Arise TV on Thursday.
Momodu said Wike and his allies have the right to leave the party.
He, however, added that the decision will not augur well for them because “they have so much at stake”.
“I want to publicly appeal to them again. If they decide to go, it’s within their rights. Nobody can stop any grown man from making a decision,” Momodu said.
“If their decision is to throw their support behind a candidate of another party, it is fine. But honestly, this my opinion, it will be political suicide. That’s the truth because they have so much at stake.
“Will Governor Seyi Makinde [of Oyo state] say ‘during the presidential election, don’t vote for PDP; during the governorship, vote for me.’ It does not work that way.”
