Nyesom Wike, Rivers State Governor, has alleged that Ali Modu Sherriff, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, National Chairman, is a mole under the sponsorship of the All Progressives Congress, APC-led Federal Government.
Wike alleged that the Federal Government was sponsoring Sheriff to cause crisis within the ranks of the former ruling party.
The governor stressed that despite Federal Government’s move at destabilising the party, PDP will “continue to wax strong.”
Wike claimed that the Federal Government is sponsoring Sheriff because of the destructive crisis that has engulfed the APC at the National level.
Wike said this after he received 7800 APC decampees, who joined the PDP, at the Sharks Stadium in Port Harcourt.
According to Wike, “Sheriff is a mole of the APC who is being sponsored by the Federal Government. They are sponsoring Sheriff because of the crisis in the APC.
“The APC has nothing to tell Rivers people on why they should remain in that party. After two years, there is no single Federal Government project in the state”.
Wike said the State has witnessed mass execution of pro-people projects despite the deliberate ploy of the APC and Federal Government to distract his administration
He stressed that the defection of APC members to the PDP signifies the death of the political party in the state because it was founded on falsehood and deception.
Wike said: “We were looking for our brothers they were kidnapped through lies and deceit. We prayed for our brothers to return and today they are back.
“Our brothers and sisters from the APC have returned at a time when the administration has started direct empowerment of the people. Everybody who has returned has equal rights with older members of the party.”
